In most situations, people visit Montenegro on a Balkan Motorcycle Tour. Usually starting from Slovenia or Croatia, motorcyclists travel to Albania, crossing countries such as Bosnia, Croatia and Montenegro.

That’s right, we are talking about the Balkan region, where Montenegro is a tiny country with just over 600,000 people.

Montenegro is currently a trending destination for Motorcyclists and car enthusiasts thanks to developing toad infrastructure and the untouched beauty of nature.

Money and ways to pay

Montenegro is not a part of the European Union, but the official currency of the country is the Euro. The country has a robust payment infrastructure, so there is no need to carry a large amount of cash. You can make payments almost everywhere with a card. All gas stations accept cash, and hotels in tourist areas accept cards. However, when traveling far north of the country, you may encounter some issues paying by card. In such cases, it’s advisable to keep some cash on hand for paying at restaurants and hotels.


Montenegro is a country where most nationalities can enter without a visa. Citizens of the European Union, UK, USA, Canada, ex-USSR countries, and the Middle East are among those who can enter visa-free. However, the length of stay allowed may vary depending on the passport you hold. We highly recommend that you double-check if you need a visa and how long you can stay in Montenegro before you plan your trip.

Please note that if you plan to stay in Montenegro for more than 24 hours, you must register with a tourist organization. Normally, hotels take care of this registration, but if you are camping or staying in a private bed and breakfast, please double-check with your host if they have already registered you or if you need to take care of it yourself.


Tourism plays a crucial role in the country’s economy, as it is the main source of revenue. Therefore, finding suitable accommodation, be it a hotel or apartment, is not a problem. There are well-developed services such as Booking.com or Airbnb.com that make it easy for you to book your next stay via their websites.
