    When using taxis in Sofia it useful to note that the price per kilometer before getting in. The prices are separated in two tariff plans – a day plan usually from 6.00 o’clock in the morning till 22.00 o’clock in the evening and a night plan from 22.00 o’clock in the evening till 6.00 o’clock in the morning.

    The prices may vary depending on the taxi company, but tend to stay in the brackets of around 0.79 BGN per kilometer for the day tariff and around 0.90 BGN per kilometer for the night tariff.

    There is also an initial charge of 0.70 BGN when you get in the taxi and a charge 0.22 BGN for 1 minute stay. Again these tariffs may vary depending on the taxi company. Even though taxis with higher rates than the above mentioned are not illegal it is wise to be careful, as the final bill can become quite high. Please, if using such a taxi note the tariff plans and the charge for the 1 minute stay, as these two charges tend to be where they differ from other taxi companies.

    If you are taking a taxi form the airport please ensure you only take a taxi from the designated taxi stop, which is on the side of the airport and to your right after existing passport and customs control. Do not under any circumstances accept rides from taxi drivers approaching you inside or outside the terminal.

    Most taxi drivers speak some English, but it is advisable to have your destination addresses written out in Bulgarian. The hotel staff would be more than happy to assist you with this.
