Old lada at Wild Thyme Eco Retreat Bulgaria

We are 2 hours by car from Varna, 3 from Bourgas and Bucharest, 1 from Ruse and 4 from Sofia.  People drive on the right hand side here.  Outside the big cities, there is very little traffic and you’ll get to see lots of the country on route, passing through many villages.  Watch out for the horse and carts!

Car rental companies

It’s possible to rent a car from Bucharest or Sofia airports.

Also possible to get a taxi or bus from Bucharest airport and rent from a local company in Ruse.  Some people prefer this option to navigating through Bucharest and the border crossing.

Listed below are a range of car rental companies.  There are plenty more listed on the web.
