Bulgaria is a tiny country on the European outback, which can be covered in a weeklong road trip. While most tourists prefer starting their tour from Sofia, the national capital, many offbeat travelers prefer starting their trip from Plovdiv as well. In this unofficial guide to the Bulgarian road trip, we recommend renting a vehicle from the Sofia airport. The car rental Sofia airport is convenient and helps in starting the trip hassle-free manner.
Before we begin the itinerary, here are few things to plan the road trip itinerary –

Any sturdy city car is suitable for this road trip itinerary. Also, carrying a working GPS system is recommended. It decreases the possibility of getting lost while traveling to remote villages of Bulgaria.
