Top tips for renting a car in Bulgaria

  • Getting around Bulgaria via public transport can be more difficult and limiting than renting a car, due to the lack of an accessible, centralized system; plus, they use a Cyrillic alphabet. Many private companies operate long-distance buses, while towns and cities have their own bus systems that often operate older vehicles on routes that aren’t always accessible without asking a local for help. Transfers are common even between short distances.
  • A car can get you from A to B, but you may want to rent a 4x4 if you plan to explore the mountainous regions. Bulgaria can experience heavy snowfall in the winter, so make sure to equip your vehicle with tire chains if you plan to visit any of the more mountainous regions in the winter months.
  • There are numerous safety items that you’ll be legally required to have in your car while driving in Bulgaria. You’ll need a fire extinguisher, a reflective jacket, a first-aid kit and a hazard triangle in order to legally drive in the country. When you rent a car in Bulgaria, all of these things should be included with the rental, but taking a quick look to make sure everything is there can potentially get you out of a ticket.
  • If you’re planning on crossing the border into neighboring countries like Macedonia, Serbia, Romania or Greece, you’ll need to obtain permission from your rental car agency first. The proper insurance and a "green card" that shows proof of insurance are essential for crossing the borders into neighboring countries successfully. As with crossing any border, make sure you have your passport/visa, your ID and your rental car papers on hand.
