Sofia Car Rental Mini Guide

Sofia is the capital and largest city in Bulgaria. It is also the 14th most populous city in Europe (Moscow 1st, London 3rd, St Petersburg 3rd). Declared a Beta World City for its quality of life and facilities, it is the only capital city in the world to have a ski resort in the middle of the city. There are many places to visit, so make use of our unlimited mileage packages when hiring a car and take a drive out and head for the country’s second city, Plovdiv, for a more traditional look at Bulgarian city life.

Whether you are arriving in Summer or for the Ski Season we have rental cars to suit every occasion, including cabriolets, 4 x 4’s, economy, luxury and of course when required our cars come with snow tyres, snow chains etc.

We have car rental desks available from Sofia itself or the nearby airport, so just book whichever is the most convenient for you.
