Being a coastal country, getting around by boat and ferry is an ideal mode of transport in Montenegro. Boats and ferries travel along Montenegro’s coast, but can also be used to travel past its border.

Another alternative mode of travel in Montenegro would be renting a car. With a large choice of providers it can be easy to find a competitive rate.
