Top tips for hiring a car in Sofia

  • Bulgaria’s capital has a lot to offer including the National Museum of History, the Park-Museum Vrana, and the Russian Monument Square. Since these attractions and more are spread out all over the city, the best way to see everything and make the most out of your trip is to rent a car. The scenic and beautiful surrounding Bulgarian landscape is also worth exploring, which is done much more easily with a car.
  • Sofia Airport is located in the east of the city and about 20 minutes by car from the city center of Sofia. There are various car hire agencies at the airport, mostly located in Terminal 2, but some also have desks in Terminal 1. They are located in the arrivals hall and include renowned agencies like Sixt, Enterprise, and Avis.
  • Sofia is a very old city and the streets were not designed for cars. Therefore, be prepared for narrow streets, some of which are not in the best conditions. Bulgarian drivers have a reputation of not always adhering to all street regulations (as it is often the case with locals who know the streets very well in any city) but, by driving defensively, there should be no issues. Remember to always drive on the right lane on highways, as the left is for overtaking only.
  • With the narrow lanes and many car owners in Sofia, congestion can occur regularly, specifically during peak times between 7:30 and 9:30 am and 4:30 to 6:30 pm. If possible, try to avoid driving during these times and explore the city when everyone else is at work after enjoying a lengthy breakfast or sleeping in.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Sofia for £9 or less
  • Book your car hire in Sofia at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport car hire locations in Sofia are around 21% more expensive than airport locations on average
  • Compact car hires in Sofia are around 71% cheaper than other car types, on average

What type of car is recommended for driving in Sofia?

For driving mainly inside the city, we would recommend a compact car, which can be maneuvered through the streets more easily and will squeeze into most parking spots. When exploring the countryside, especially in the winter, opt for a car with 4-wheel drive, as snow and ice are not uncommon here during the cold months.

What's the speed limit in Sofia?

As in all continental European countries, speed limits are given in kilometers per hour, so familiarize yourself with the conversion. Inside the city, 50 km/h (31 mph) is permitted and 90 km/h (56 mph) is the limit outside the city. On expressways, drivers can speed up to 120 km/h (75 mph) and on highways they can even drive up to 140 km/h (87 mph).

How are gas prices in Sofia?

In general, petrol is more expensive in Europe than in the US, regardless of which country you visit. Petrolis also measured in liters rather than in gallons. In Sofia, the average price is 2.21 Bulgarian lev per liter (about $1.28 per liter, or $5.12 per gallon), which is a fairly low price for European standards.

Where are the best places to park in Sofia?

On-street parking in Sofia has two zones, a blue and a green one, that are metered. The blue one allows cars to be parked for up to 2 hours, while the green one goes up to 4 hours. The time restrictions -- between 8 am and 7 pm -- apply on working days, but bear in mind that some Saturdays are also declared working days and the meter must be fed. Alternatively, there are parking garages and lots dotted around the city, but they can be very pricey. A P+R is another option and is located at the metro to easily access the city center.
