Car rental & driving in Bulgaria
Car rental in Bulgaria easy, there are many car rental companies here in Bulgaria. However, you need to be careful, use only a car hire company that is legal.
There are people out there that will take more money than a bonafide company, further more you will not be insured, the car will not be legal, and you risk very large fines or imprisonment if you are caught driving them.
You will almost certainly be stopped by the police in Bulgaria if you drive here for a few days. Don’t worry, this is normal. The Bulgarian police do not need a reason to stop you, they will ask for documents. Most likely you will not understand what they are saying, they will probably not understand you either.
If you are stopped in your hire car whilst driving in Bulgaria, just hand over all the documentation the Bulgarian car hire company gave you, plus your driving licence, and your passport. You are ok with a photo ID type driving licence in Bulgaria, if you have the old type, you need an international driving permit. It is just as quick, and probably easier to simply renew your old licence, you will automatically receive a new EU type driving licence.
Remember to bring the paper portion of your licence, some companies here require it, as do all UK car hire companies When driving in Bulgaria, do not break the speed limit, this is strictly enforced. As a guide, if you are out of town you can drive up to 90 km per hour in Bulgaria, and not more than 50 km per hour in the towns or villages. The edge of town is normally indicated by a sign with the name, when leaving it will have a red line through it like this

Drive slowly and safely in Bulgaria, and use a good car hire company in Bulgaria.
