Car Hire Sofia Airport

Upon arrival at Sofia Airport, there are several means of travel available to transport visitors to their hotel rooms; you may opt for taxi service, airport bus shuttles or the more preferred option: car rental. Renting a vehicle for use has numerous benefits and is the most preferred method that visitors prefer to use when getting around the city. Here, one is almost spoilt for choice as to which car hire agency to obtain the rental services from; within the airport itself, there are several rental companies and these are mainly the large main players in the field.

Which Agency to Choose for Car Hire?

These large companies have the benefit of having a large variety of car rental fleets to choose from; from SUVs to convertibles, to just the average economy cars. They also have branches spread out in several locations the world over and this conveniently allows for one-way trips even outside the country. What happens is that you rent the vehicle from Sofia then you may drive up to a neighboring city or country and leave the rental vehicle there for pick up by the company. Of course, a pick up charge will apply but for many, this is a small price to pay for convenience.

On the downside, however, these companies may be a tad costly as compared to their smaller counterparts and this is where the local agencies come in handy. The smaller local rent-a-car companies may not have such a large fleet to choose from, and they may not even allow for one-way journeys even within the same country; but their prices are more favorable for the frugal spender or just those working on a strict budget.

Caution must be taken however, as the local car rental agencies may not be as reputable as their bigger international rivals. Some will offer services of dismal quality and others will even have you paying way more than you had planned for; through hidden charges. It is for these reasons that travelers are advised to perform research on rental agencies in advance so as to prevent a fiasco of an experience.

Driving in Bulgaria – Precautions

  1. Bulgarian drivers can be rather reckless on the road. They break traffic rules and road rage is common. It would however be helpful if you keep away from horrid exchanges with them.
  2. Roads are generally in good condition but during the months if winter, potholes are common; beware.
  3. Many road signs have been uprooted and vandalized for selling as scrap metal so some signs may be missing.
