Re: Amazon fire stick

As long as the TV you want to use it on in Bulgaria has a HDMI port, then you should be able to use it in same way as in UK, though there may be possible differences in WiFi connection, broadband speed etc. If you want to stream from a subscription service like Netflix or Amazon Prime then check wit...

Re: registering and insuring a UK car in Bulgaria

Thanks truckyboy, I've already bought the winter tyres (I wanted the peace of mind for the drive across Europe in Dec/Jan - for the sake of the different rules in the various countries I'll drive through, as well of course for the better road handling in winter conditions). They aren't the studded o...

Re: registering and insuring a UK car in Bulgaria

Thanks millerman - yes I'm getting insurance that covers the full year throughout Europe. I'm getting a set of winter tyres before I make the journey in December, but as I'll be staying for the year I'm wondering whether it's worth sending over my summer tyres (which are fairly new) to Bulgaria alon...

Re: registering and insuring a UK car in Bulgaria

Thanks truckyboy, and sorry for the late reply. That's useful to know - it now looks like I'll be getting year-round uk-based (Europe-wide unlimited) insurance so hoping I won't have to register it there (technically you have 6 months before it needs registering locally but there seems to be some do...

Re: buying a car

Thanks bigbulg. I will still be officially resident in the UK - employed, paying taxes etc. in UK and flying back sometimes to do the bits of my work that need me to be in UK, but the plan is for the car to stay in Bulgaria for maybe 11 months.

The company is Stuart Collins.

Re: buying a car

Hope you don't mind me chipping in with a question related to the 2nd point about bringing a car from the UK (which hopefully will also be helpful to westwich)... If you bring a car from the UK to Bulgaria and stay for more than 6 months, is it absolutely necessary to change it to Bulgarian registra...

Re: Using the Serbia Route - Recent Observations

Thanks bigbulg, the link works fine for me - thanks for the info. I spoke with my insurer and though they acknowledged the change in Serbia's status they still won't cover it. I've contacted the specialist insurance company that 'owain' suggests above (Stuart Collins) so will see what they come back...

Re: Using the Serbia Route - Recent Observations

Hi, just looking to update the situation on driving through Serbia. I understand that since January 1st 2012 Serbia has been part of the International Motor Insurance Green Card System, and as such if you have insurance from an EU member state you don't need a Green Card, but that many (maybe most) ...

registering and insuring a UK car in Bulgaria

Hi, I wonder if anyone can explain the process for getting a UK car registered and insured etc. in Bulgaria - I will be driving the car over in January 2018 and probably driving it back a year or so later. I've read through some previous threads on this and similar topics and found some very useful ...

Re: Italy - Greece route

Thanks for the replies and useful information. We haven't finalised the route yet but are leaning towards overnight from Hull to Zeebrugge... I'm in Hull. Give me a shout and I'll give you a tour of Hull's best parts. No, wait a minute, Hull hasn't got any best parts... They don't hand out 'city of...
