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.
