Sofia Airport is located 10km, or about a half-hour of driving, from the capital city Sofia. You can take bus number 384 or 84 to the city. But it’s not the best option.
The bus will take you from the airport to the city centre, which means that taxi fare costs are inevitable. That is why the travellers arriving with large bags, children, and baby carriages prefer to arrange for a private transfer (that will cost around €35, depending on the distance to the hotel and time of the day) or rent a car.
It is more convenient and cost-efficient to have your rental car delivered right to the airport where the public parking spaces are located opposite the terminals and open 24/7.
Instead of tiresome travelling by bus or taxi, you’ll get your hire car keys once you exit the terminal. 10 minutes to sign an agreement — and you enjoy the country’s beauty.
