Car Hire FAQs

What are the requirements to hire a car in Sofia?

If you're looking at car hire in Sofia and wondering what you need, there are a couple of things to take note of. You must be at least 21 years old and have held your licence for one year to obtain car hire in Sofia. If you're younger than 25, you may be liable for a young driver surcharge on top of the standard hire fee and be limited to the type of vehicle you can hire. Cheap car hire is available at the airport and in the city, and all of the companies require a valid home driving licence and an international driving permit before leaving the floor with the car hire.

What are the rules for driving in Sofia?

When driving a car hire in Sofia, be sure to make note of the road rules to avoid getting into trouble with the law. Firstly, traffic flows on the right-hand side of the road and passes on the left. The legal driving age is 18 years old, but you'll need to be at least 21 to secure car hire in Sofia. If you have a child younger than three, they must be secured in a child seat, while children under the age of 12 must wear seatbelts and be in the back seat of the car. You may not use a mobile phone while driving unless accompanied by a hands-free device. Drinking and driving is taken very seriously in Sofia; the legal level is 0.05% and being caught above that could result in losing your licence for a full year and possibly jail time. Stay up to date with local motor vehicle authorities about recent law changes.

What type of car is recommended for driving in Sofia?

Although the roads in Sofia tend to be in better condition than a lot of Bulgaria, they're still not the best quality. Consider hired cars in Bulgaria that have automatic transmission and a bigger frame than standard compacts or minis. A Volkswagen Sedan or bigger is perfectly suited to driving in the country. You want cheap car hire in Bulgaria with automatic transmission to avoid excess fuel consumption when sitting in traffic. Many of the sights worth seeing in Bulgaria are only accessible via car, so we suggest doing some research and picking your car hire based on fuel consumption and comfortability. Volkswagen Polo is a popular choice for car hire in Sofia and often comes with a fair fuel policy.

Blue zones offer a maximum parking time of 2h and will charge you per hour between 08:00 a.m. and 19:00 p.m. on working days.
