From the UK to Sofia:

BA – Heathrow
EasyJet – Manchester and Gatwick
Wizzair – Luton
Balkan Holidays (flight only) – various airports including Edinburgh/Newcastle
Other airlines fly directly to Sofia from the London airports.

The transfer to Bansko takes from 2 1/2- 3 hours. You are better prebooking the taxi – there are a number of companies which offer this service:

Transfers by earlybird transfers : Not only do Steve and Wendy collect you, they will have sandwiches and drinks (outward journey) plus DVD’s (to keep all kids happy – even the grownup ones!! They will also order your lift pass (at a discount) and give it to you on arrival. Saves a lot of hassle!

Alternatives include banskoexpress or get the local bus from the centre of Sofia.

Car hire – prebook winter accessories (e.g. snow chains) and consider a Sat Nav – though be careful with this as it took us over the mountains – most direct, but definitely the longest!

Ryanair fly to Plovdiv from Stanstead starting 2nd Nov 2010 Transfer time approximately 2.5 hours
