tend to get 7 day vignete in each country and when i came across a couple of years ago it was less than 10 euro for each country but that was for a car type vehicle you do pay more the bigger the vehicle.
Also even if you are staying for a long period in bg only get the week vignette and then get one from a garage or post office when your in BG as they charge inflated prices at the border.

For austria pull in at first garage and they sell them there, hungary at the border they have them in the office, romania at customs as well.

Be warned do not leave the vehicle unattended as you may find your digger will disappear.

I meant on your travels to get to bulgaria, its only common sense though isnt it. Like you said you wouldnt leave it unattended here in the UK.

Have a good trip. Which part of bulgaria are you going to, we are near to general toshevo, dobrich.

Hi Demoboy, maybe you could fill in some of the potholes on the way. Good luck on the journey.

Hi again Pat, We are going to the dobrich area, One of my houses is just up the road from you in kapinovo, We have a few in dobrich area, We are planing on doing a bit to them, ie. septic tanks etc, perhaps we might have a chat over a beer or two? Are you in bg now? I reckon to be there around next sunday, regards Tony.
