Voice of Travelers to Slovenia
Everything was impeccable in Slovenia. I am so glad that I booked a ticket to Slovenia
When I visited Slovenia, I noticed that the country has some of the best airports. I flew with British Airways and the service on my flight to Slovenia was simply amazing. For my holiday in Slovenia, I had pre-booked some group tour tickets for sightseeing. The tickets were really cheap and delivered on time. The country is so beautiful and I had a great time visiting all the sights. For my return flight back home, I flew with Slovenia International Air. I was amazed how cheap the air ticket was and would recommend anyone visiting Slovenia to book with them. Overall, the ticket prices are much cheaper in comparison with some of the bigger airlines. I visited Slovenia in the winter and it was really cold. Make sure that you pack some warm clothes when planning to visit Slovenia during the winter months!
