Car Hire Bulgaria

Bulgaria Car Hire Services

Driving in Bulgaria can be a slightly unnerving experience for the uninitiated as locals who are used to the area and the sometimes poor condition of the roads do not always take into account that some of their fellow drivers may be unfamiliar with the area.

Obviously if you are hiring a car then you will want to avoid damage to the vehicle and having to potentially pay an excess.

One point in particular to bear in mind whilst driving a vehicle especially if is a rental car is that should any damage to the vehicle occur, whether caused by yourself or a third party, you should contact the police and ask them to make note of the incident as you may experience issues later when it comes to insurance claims if not.

Speed Limits in Bulgaria Like all countries, the speed limit in Bulgaria depends on the type of road that you are on and the surrounding area however the general rules to go by are as follows:

  • Motorways – 130 Kilometres per hour (80.77 Miles per Hour)
  • Single Carriageways – 90 Kilometres per hour (55.92 Miles per Hour)
  • Built up areas = 50 Kilometres per hour (31.06 Miles per Hour)

It is important to make sure that you are aware of what the local speed limits are, particularly in a hire car as if you do incur any fines then there is normally an administration charge which can sometimes be almost equal to that of the charge itself.

Road Signs Bulgaria follows the European standards for road signs and most of the road signs are displayed in Latin letters however it is a very good idea to try and familiarise yourself with what the roads signs actually mean before driving out on the open road.

Drink Driving Limits in Bulgaria Whether you are in the UK or in a foreign country then generally the best advice is not to drink at all. This is particularly true in a country like Bulgaria where driving can be challenging at the best of times and you really need to keep your wits about you as even a first offence is likely to result in a considerable prison sentence. In addition to the potential legal impacts,many car hire companies will not rent to anyone that has had a drink driving offence within the last 5 – 10 years. The current blood alcohol limit when driving in Bulgaria is 0.5 mg per ml although as mentioned above, if you do plan on driving, it is much better to avoid alcohol completely!
