If you are looking for a more comfortable and convenient way to travel from Sofia to your private rental villa with pool, then renting a car is the real deal. It offers you all the flexibility and freedom you may possibly need.

A car-ride from Sofia to Bryastovets, Sunny beach or Burgas seems to be the fastest and easiest way to reach your destination since the ride usually takes around 3 hours if you go down the highway, which is two times faster than any possible public transport. There are numerous options to rent a car and they all supply you with greater mobility and flexibility.

Another great asset of renting a car is that you can take a car straight from the airport and arrange to drop it off at almost every spot of the country. For example, you can drive to Burgas, use the car all the way through your holiday (which also gives you limitless opportunities to explore possible activities around the entire northern part of the Bulgarian seaside) and return it at any airport you like. Or return it straight away as you arrive at your destination. It is all up to you and it is guaranteed to be an option that suits all of your needs.

Just as anywhere else, prices here range largely depending on the car model you’ve chosen and the amount of time you are planning on using the car. But as a matter of fact, you can find some really good deals on rental cars that will provide you with an even better holiday experience.

One last perk of renting a car is the chance to take trips around the local points of interest or go even further and explore the country on the way to your rental villa or apartment in Burgas.
