    When you first arrive at bourgas airport and need transport to your destination Taxi is your only option.
    unfortunately the Taxi man has become a greedy man to foreigners and will charge well over the taxi rate to take you to your destination.
    My advice is to tell him your destination he will give you a price haggle and agree a price before you enter there taxi make sure the price is agreed in lev and mention the currancy lev or you might find you are charged in Euro.
    when you arrive talk to other tourist thay might know a Taxi man who will give a fair price back to the Airport.
    If you are a regaluar visitor to Bulgaria talk to people who are foreigners and living in Bulgaria thay will advice you.

    They can /and probably will/ double the price when you arrive and start searching for a taxi in front of the airport. I prefer to book the transfer online and have never had problems with it. They are always waiting for me with a sign of my name at the exit.

    I am using to book a taxi transfer, because I am prepaying the full price online and never pay directly to the driver. Then I have peace of mind...

    If only double, you can even experience tripple or quadruple prices. The best way to get taxi is to call one through a hotel and agree on the price with the driver before you get in the car!

    Transfers in Bulgaria really differs a lot , from 50lv to 80lv per car one way to Sunny Beach from Bourgas. Here are some useful sites I found and are one of the cheapest:

    Never pay upfront the whole amount of your airport transfers in Bulgaria.

    We are owners in the garden of eden st vlas comlex, we have tried several companies, the problem is they are not companies they are one man and his car and not reliable when things go wrong and flight delays etc. we now use HHB travel for all our rental booking transfers and our own they are a good price and have been very reliable and received good feed back from our guests
  • edited 1:51AM
    Hi, I suggest to use if you need transfer from airport.
    As we are from Sweden, safetiness is very important for us:-)) so I recommend them. When I compared I found their price to be good and since it is fixed price then you don´t lose valueable time for negoatiations.
    My kids still remember Mira and Nikolai; kids know better who is "real friendly" and "no turist friendly". Good luck and pls say hello from me if you meet them! Br //Daniel

    I travel to Bulgaria, Bourgas airport 4 times a year and my family travel twice a year. I will never take a taxi from the airport ever again, The taxi drivers which I have meet at the airport rubbed me blind, the minute I opened my mouth with my wonderful English accent my fare more then doubled and you have no choice but to pay, one taxi driver said to me if you don't pay the price that I want, you stay at the airport, I was furious. they don't use there meters and if you get them to use the meters they put so many extras on top it still cost you double. I had to find a company which gave me a true price and a safe reliable service. I found that company on the internet called I tried them and the service was excellent the price was cheap in comparison to taxi outside airport, they have never let me or my family down, you pay a deposit on the internet, I paid by paypal the driver takes cash on arrival, your name is on a board when you arrive at the airport.

    An alternative way of taking a cab is hiring a car yourself. It's a bit more expensive but you would definetely not pay nightmare fees for short distances. I'd rather rent a car once I pay a solid price for my credibility to a taxi driver. Besides cabs there are also car rental companies at Bourgas Airport and you can find them in the arrival's hall. I used the services of a local company named TOP Rent a car and was really happy with the car and the price. While I was staying in Sunny Beach I grabbed the opportunity to travel around once I had hired a car and visited the nearby resorts Nessebar, Pomorie and Sozopol which worth seeing. Hope to be helpful.

    Yes, be careful with the taxis in Bulgaria. As soon as they see that you are a foreinger, prices go up. The best thing to do is to book a taxi at an airport kiosk or to get a shuttle bus. There is a shuttle bus from Sofia Airport to the city centre for example.

    Hello everyone,

    Taking yellow cab direct from airport can cost you 90 - 130 levs one way. Pre-booking a taxi is must. So I can recommend for private transfers Easy can google them. Email: [email protected] They do airport transfers from Burgas airport to Sunny beach at very reasonable cost. They provide 24 h help service.

    They offer trips and excursions from Sunny beach. Car hire.

    I used them many times. Many of our friends have also used this company with no problems.

    Hope this helps

  • Hello,
    I used bourgas taxi once and I will not recommend it to anyone else. But if someone wants a professioanl airport transfer services from Bourgas or Sofia to Sunny beach I will deffinitely will recommend Bulgaria Airport Transfers. I had a delay longer than 2 hours but the driver was waiting for me.

    Check them ! I highly recommend their services.
