    Travelling to Bulgaria

    The currency is the Lev (lv) and is mostly what is used in Bulgaria so bring a card you can withdraw with on arrival.

    Public transport in Bulgaria is inexpensive but often slow and not always clean or comfortable. Travelling by bus (avtobus) is usually the quickest way of getting between major towns and cities. Generally, you can buy tickets (bileti) at the bus station (avtogara) at least an hour in advance when travelling between towns, but on some routes they’re only sold when the bus arrives. On rural routes, tickets are often sold by the driver. Taxis must be painted yellow and display their rates on the window. Otherwise it is not uncommon for drivers to claim the meter is not working and overcharge. Dishonest drivers congregate outside airports, train and bus stations and big city centres.
