Bulgaria enjoys fantastic air links to the UK and whilst flying from Spain isn’t quite as easy flights from both Alicante and Valencia are available. Flights are keenly priced and available via a number of large operators ( see below for details and links to web pages). Presently budget airlines such as Easy Jet and Ryan Air don’t fly to Bulgaria but it is anticipated they will open routes in 2007.

The country has 4 international airports located to give great access to the most popular areas.
Sofia, 15 min. from the capitol provides easy transit routes to the city centre and the popular Ski resorts of Vitosha mountain ( actually in the suburbs of Sofia) and Borovets (48kms) away.
Both Varna and Bourgas airports are situated on the Black Sea coast and again these are close to the city centres and all of the popular Black Sea coast resorts such as Sunny Beach and Golden Sands.

Travel within Bulgaria is very much akin to travel within the UK. The major cities have buses, trams, metros and great rail links with the rest of the country. Taxis are easily available within the towns and cities and there is a great road network with motorways linking the capital to the coast. All the budget car rental firms have offices at the airports and within the cities but on line advance rental usually secures the cheapest rate.
