Fortunately, the cost is reasonable like most things in Montenegro. The tourist tax is approximately €00.90 per day, per adult. On the other hand, you can ask my local management company or local driver to arrange this for you. Pick the correct driver as they have two different entry points for quick entry through the border. Above all, you must have your passport ready to show. If you are driving your own car be sure to pay your taxes on departure or you will be asked to pay the tourist tax by customs.
