Hi Paul,
we've booked Luton to Bourgas for £115 each in June. It's less than 3 hours from Bourgas to Varna. Maybe flights in July are more expensive.

I endorse what has been said about travel to Sofia. You can normally get a one way flight to Sofia from either Luton with Wizzair or Easyjet from Gatwick for between £40 and £80. We need to go to Vidin. The inter city buses are good, reliable and comfortable. The cost of one way Sofia-Vidin is 16 leva. About the same price as the train, but half the journey time.

Hi all,
we did the Luton-Bucherest route in april total cost of 2 flights came to £94.00, got picked up by steves driver from the Baba Tonka guesthouse and taken over the border to rousse.
From there we hired a car from Steve and drove to Dobrich, flights, transfers, and car hire worked out cheaper than than a BA flight to varna.

If you do this route we recommend indesec ( Steve) as he provides an excellent sevice.

Paul.

paul-alice we did similar thing in January (Bucharest) but the road conditions/weather were horrendous at that time. What with delays and airport change, we would probably have been better off going into Sofia. However hire car company (thru Penguin) were tremendous, I am sure they must have lost on the deal.

arron, you may have got Sofia flights that cheaply now but for July/August? I doubt it. If you have, let me know how as I am almost constantly monitoring prices for a friend.

We booked our flights with wizz air last month for july, £212.00 for the both of us return Luton-Sofia, just had a look at their website now and its the same price.
If you leave it a couple of weeks they will double in price, best to book as early as you can.

Regards Paul.

Sofia - Varna flights
Last night noticed wizz air had promotions for late July and in August (the dates I checked),

Zero fare ---- only pay taxes , totals around 11 BGN each way were available.

Most of the Luton/Sofia flights are cheap throughout July and August. i.e. under £150
