Flights to Bulgaria

To get to the Emerald Beach Resort and Spa, the nearest International Airport is at Bourgas.  You will need to check times and flights as these are sometimes restricted at different times of the year. Current airlines flying to Bourgas and useful flight comparison sites are provided below.  Please click for more information.

Outside peak months you may also wish to consider flights to Sofia or Varna Airports which have more frequent services including flights by BA and Easyjet and and then using an internal Bulgaria Air flight to Bourgas.  Remember however, the increased transfer times.

British Citizens need a full 10 year passport valid for at least 3 months after you return to the UK. No visa is required for British nationals for visits of up to 90 days in any 6 month period.  For further information please check with the Bulgarian Embassy at 186-188 Queens Gate, London SW7 5HL.

Car Hire in Bulgaria

Hiring a car in Bulgaria is easier and cheaper than in many other countries.  There are a wealth of national and local car hire firms looking for your business.  Although the legal age at which you can get a license in Bulgaria is 18 years of age, some car hire firms will put on a higher minimum age e.g. 23 years.  Besides this, you will also need to check the terms and conditions and the level of insurance included in the basic price.  

Driving in Bulgaria is fairly straight forward, although they do drive on the right.  You will also need to be aware that the conditions of the roads in some areas are not up to the same standard as those in the UK.  Large potholes can even be encountered on some of the major town roads.  You can usually pick up your car at Bourgas or Varna airport, and drive straight to Emerald.  The alternative is to book a transfer from the airport and then use the good public transport or cheap local taxis for the rest of your stay.

If you are interested in arranging a transfer from the airport, please let us know at the time of booking your stay.
