Airport Transfers to Ski Resorts


Bulgaria is still an emerging market, having only recently joined the European union. The Bulgarians are still getting to grips with the free market economy, they will be the first to admit that things are very different for them. Now that things are not regulated, there seems to be a wide differential between the prices charged and the service provided. It is therefore very important to have good recommendations and avoid any poor services.

In France or Italy the general standard is expected to be of a certain quality, but in Bulgaria it is different. If you can find the best, then the value for money and quality of service will far exceed the more established western European ski resorts. This applies to restaurants, transfers, ski hire and many other aspects of your holiday.



We found a local family man who is enterprising, reliable and honest, with a well maintained spacious people carrier. He is well recommended in the Bulgarian ski forums and by locals (and us). His name is Stoyan Petkov (nick named Steve). We have transferred with Steve several times, he will even stop off for you at the local supermarket so that you can stock up on essential provisions at no extra cost! Stoyan (Steve) will contact you by mobile and can confirm flight times and any changes so that you have a smooth trouble free transfer.

Contact details are as follows:


Transfers from Sofia Airport to Pamporovo - £ 160 for up to 6 passengers


Transfers from Plovdiv Airport to Pamporovo - £ 105 for up to 6 passengers

Car hire  


We usually hire a car in summer, to avoid the risk of driving in the snow and ice. However, some holiday makers visiting the ski resort do hire a car and the main roads are generally well cleared. When choosing your location within the ski resorts in Bulgaria, it is best to choose one with good access from the main roads. During periods of high snow fall (usually between December and April) smaller side roads can easily become blocked with snow and if your hotel or apartment is isolated off the main roads you will find yourself walking the last 1/2 mile to gain access! Not much fun if the temperature is -3 degrees F and you are carrying a suitcase.

We have hired a car from TS Travel in Sofia, they provided a good serviceable car and good reliable service. The cost is much lower than a National chain, such as Hertz or Eurocar. But be careful! Some less reputable Bulgarian car hire companies will not provide you with adequate insurance, unless you ask the right questions, they will appear to be super cheap, but you will not be properly covered in the event of an accident! We did a lot of research before choosing TS Travel and they also respond promptly to emails with reasonably good English.
