The thing that will stuff you as you enter Montenegro and Albania is your insurance as they are not part of the EU, your insurance should cover you for all EU countries and they should be listed on your insurance certificate.. We had a kafuffle at Montenegro and Albania borders but the get out is you can buy insurance at the border, there is an insurance office at both borders to buy insurance but it is third party only, the insurance for Montenegro was only about 20 Euros but the insurance guy at Albania wanted 100 Euros, I haggled him down to 50 Euros which was still extortionate.. Also your breakdown cover will not be active in any non EU countries so drive carefully!.
The answer is get Montenegro and Albania and any other non EU country you might visit from your own insurer, and make sure they are on the list of countries on your insurance certificate as they will be checked at the borders.. The reason I got caught out was I didn't know we would be going through these countries so having them on my insurance never crossed my mind, learn from my mistakes!.....
Just watching a shifty looking geezer in the library searching intently through the 'S' section of the dictionary, he's stopped now.
I think he's up to something. . .. . .
