So they are saying that you have been underpaying for many years and have to pay an annual cost of 370 backdated for 16 years? How long have you been in BG/owned the car? 370 leva is not an impossible figure for 'danak' (municipality car tax) in BG but it must be a reasonably hefty vehicle. I pay ab...

Greetings from one who trod the same path a few years ago in that I, too, taught English in Russia for many years but moved directly to live in BG full-time about 5 years ago. I had a great time in Russia and after I had swiftly cut out the middle-man, ie: the schools, it was possible to make a very...

I last rented a car from Varna airport last February. I was shocked to find that there was an additional charge for "Winter equipment". This was with all the different companies. It is a con but nothing we can do about it so just be prepared to pay about another 14 euro when you pick up. Was that f...

We've used Pro Rent a Car rent-a-car-varna.com when we arrived in Varna this year. The staff is nice and their English is good, and we're very content with our Citroen C3 which was in time at the airport equipped with navigation and a child seat for our kid! We've prolonged our rent with 3 days and...

Re: Taxi fare from Bourgas, Varna or Sofia

You can check taxi fares from all major airports in Bulgaria at http://www.bg-taxi.com You're replying to a very old thread, Kiko_bg, but I suppose it's always useful to refresh information on an ever-present and continuing need.

i take meme's point on trip adviser reviews - but even these you have to be cautious over. many are fake. most owners, especially in the hostel world, give guests a free night's stay if they leave 100 % reviews. That's why I specifically mentioned only the negative reviews, flags. That way, even if...

A salutary, expensive and disappointing tale indeed. I usually check reviews on TripAdvisor/Booking.com and the like before I book anywhere, even if for just one night B&B. At the slightest sniff or two of a bad review, I discard that possible resting place. TripAdvisor so far has 31 of them for the...
