I needed multiple transfers from Sofia airport to Belchin for my family - 5 adults with 2 children under 2 years old and arriving at different times and terminals. The booking process was easy and straight forward, always prompt and clear reply by Yuri and there was an emergency number to speak to him. There was change of plan and Yuri was flexible to organise transfer from Belchin to Sofia airport/centre for the whole family in a very short notice. Very professional and careful drivers, car seats were provided for the both kids, great service. Thank you Yuri, Vlado, Kostadin!!!!
Booking process is clear and quick.On arrival to Sofia airport I was met by the driver as expected. The drive to Plovdiv was perfect, with stops for coffee and acquiring local cash. On the road we discussed a few topics of mutual interest, which is a pleasant bonus as compared to other transfer services. Thanks to Yuri and Vadim for the amazing service, I definitely recommend this company to everyone travelling across Bulgaria, and will use it again as needed.
everything worked perfectly. Driver was on time waiting for us at airport as we exited customs and picked us up at the agreed upon time at our hotel to take us back to airport. 2 people with 2 packs cost 15 euros each direction. Pay cash.
We would use them again because of their reliability. With that said. Taxis are very cheap in Sofia but you have to negotiate a rate before you get in. we could have saved some money with a taxi but we liked the reliability of having the car service.
Looking for Other Options?
The whole purpose of our service is to cater to all of your needs, allowing you to relax and enjoy your transfer in peace.
Our drivers all speak English and have excellent knowledge of the local area. This means that on top of finding the best route to your hotel, they’ll usually be able to help you with any other questions you might have about your destination too.
But, there are several other options available for your Sofia airport transfer service:
Regular taxi service
The Sofia Airport Official Taxi Partner is OK Taxi.
The differences which you’ll notice between this and our service include that
- The driver will not speak English
- You will not be met at the arrivals terminal
- They will accept only cash.
Be aware that people have been known to offer unlicensed taxi services in the airport vicinity.
This is a scam which we and other fully licensed, fully insured taxi services in the local area are trying to crack down on. Check that any taxi you get into has a name you trust.

Sofia, the country’s capital, is also its largest city. It is pleasantly surrounded by mountains rising in verdant splendor. The highest mountain invites with a huge natural park. It can be reached by chairlift. At the beginning of the mountain slope is the National Museum of History. It is a wealthy trove of artifacts, including unique Thracian treasures abounding in a host of gold and silver items.
By the museum is located the St Panteleimon Church with unique ancient murals. In the center of Sofia is the famous memorial church named after Alexander Nevsky. The monument of the Russian tsar and liberator Alexander the Second in the central square is a worthy landmark. The St Nicholas Church was built as homage to Russian soldiers from the liberation army who brought Bulgaria liberty from Ottoman domination.
Sofia, in whose vicinity Sofia Airport is located, is the capital of Bulgaria. According to 2011 data, its citizens number more than one million two hundred. Quite near the city rises the Vitosha mountain. Sofia has its own subway system, trams, trolleys and buses networks, and also a railway transport system.
Sofia’s share in the total production of the country is one-sixth. Education and culture are highly developed in this remarkable city. For tourists it will be interesting to visit Bulgarian churches, galleries, theatres and other cultural sites which are numerous in the Bulgarian capital. In addition, Sofia is a very beautiful city and a pleasant place for memorable walks.

My business is closely linked to Bulgaria, and that is why I am a frequent visitor here. I have never experienced problems with the choice of taxi, because in the past year I have been using only the taxi services offered by Around Bulgaria. They always wait for me at Sofia Airport and take me to my office.
The services the company offers completely conform to my needs. They always have unoccupied cars available, the drivers are friendly and courteous, they do not pester me with their own problems and experiences, and they never drive on, striving to add more kilometers, in order to rip us, their Slavic brothers, off. For my business purposes, an important advantage is the availability of Internet connection in the car (when I was first told about that convenience, I was even a little surprised). I am content indeed!

My brother and I had to travel, and it was an urgent trip. We had to reach from Sofia to Romania, on a trip for business. I was recommended the AroundBulgaria.com site by friends, so I used their services for a trip to Constanta. A driver of the company staff met us at the Sofia Airport, right at the agreed time. He offered us to help us load our cases into the car (we politely said no, it was OK to carry them on our own), and drove us to the hotel in Constanta.
I liked greatly how the driver was all the time caring, taking heed of our comfort; he asked what kind of music we preferred to have playing, whether he should adjust the air-conditioning, and about other wishes we might have. We heard him talk fluent English, and we asked him if all the company drivers can speak and explain well in English, and he said yes. Soon the taxi approached the hotel, we paid and said goodbye, pleased with our driver. The taxi service for our transfer still makes us feel very satisfied with it!
