  • Flights

    Flights to Bourgas and Varna are plentiful in the summer and from practically every airport in the Uk and Ireland between May and October

    Prices for summer 2012 as usual seem generally to be on the high side so shopping around before you purchase tickets is imperative.

    The announcement back in 2010 of WIzz Airs' summer route from Luton to Varna introduced some cheaper fares. Wizz also increased their peak season frequency to Bourgas to 5 times a week. Although budget carrier Ryanair now fly to the city of Plovdiv twice a week at very reasonable prices the Black Sea Coast is a long 4 hour coach ride away.

    We hope you find the links below useful in the quest for cheap fares. If you know of any others we have missed please let us know

  • Car Hire

    Reservations can be made prior to departure and delivery points are usually at the arrival airport. Hire cars can be a good way of exploring and increasingly the road signs are now written in both English and Cyrillic so navigation is not too difficult. Petrol and Diesel cost around BGN2.50 per litre.

  • Coach & Rail Travel

    The coach and rail links provide an excellent service. Both have a huge domestic network as well as international links and are a great way of exploring. The recently completed Central Bus Station and Central Train Station, which has recently undergone modernisation, are located adjacent to one another so if you miss your bus why not catch the train!

    Taxis from Sofia Airport are plentiful but can be expensive if you take one from the rank outside - expect to pay between 30 and 50 Levs depending on your bargaining skills! There is a cab company named OK Cabs located in the arrival halls of both airports - if you order a taxi from them you will be charged the correct fare according to the meter. At the time of writing (March 2012) the fare to the city centre is around 14 Levs. Alternatively catch the bus - The No 84 bus and the No30 Minibus both stop outside the Arrivals Hall of the Low Cost Terminal (The old airport). A free shuttle bus runs between the two airports at regular intervals. A Bus Ticket must be purchased from the blue kiosk next to the bus stop for around 1 Lev - expect to pay 1 Lev for each piece of luggage, but you pay onboard the Minibus. Please note however they do not go all the way to the Central Stations. Instead you have to alight at the University and either walk (approx 15 mins), hail a cab (5 Levs) or walk along Tsar Osvoboditel Street and catch a No1 or
    No7 Tram.

    A good 3D Map map of Sunny Beach along with photo's - a bit slow at loading and a little outdated now but there aren't better alternatives at the moment.

    Use this interactive map of Bulgaria by bgmaps.com to find any town/village or resort on the Bulgarian map. Simply enter the name of the place in the "settlement" field.
    Also, there are street maps available of the biggest cities in Bulgaria - Sofia, Plovdiv, Varna, Bourgas and Ruse. Please note that if your search does not return a result try alternative spellings. For example Borovets can be also written as Borovetz or Borovez and Sofia can be also written as Sofiya. The site also contains a route-planner similar to the AA's in the UK
