I have booked taxi from Sofia Airport to Serres in Greece. I am 100% satisfied with the service provided in such difficult situation due to covid restrictions.

Our driver was exactly what we hoped and a little more: punctual, responsible trough out the entire duration of our trip, understanding and efficient, overall very proficient. Also, thanks to the support team who was very efficient with helping us locate our driver at the arrival ( it was our first time in Bulgaria and we were a little lost in translation). Thank you!

All was perfect, uncomplicated and smooth transfer Frank Schreyger
The driver met me upon my arrival to the airport and provided a smooth transportation to girona, even though it was late at night. My flight was delayed 3 hours, so I had to book an unexpected taxi, and thankfully he was available! So thankful that this worked out, and the transfer was great too:) Kayla Davis

Sofia Airport: Transfers and Taxi

Transfers from Sofia Airport

Transfers from Sofia Airport (SOF) are the quickest and most comfortable way to reach popular tourist destinations in Bulgaria: Bansko, Borovets, Burgas, Golden Sands, Nessebar, Pamporovo, Sunny Beach, Sveti Vlas, Varna, etc.

This travel option allows you to:

  1. Reach your hotel faster. You don’t have to search for a bus/metro stop or wait for a taxi to arrive: the driver meets you in the designated place strictly at the specified time.

  2. Avoid exchanging currency. You don’t have to exchange your money into Bulgarian leva to pay for a trip with Kiwitaxi: you can choose a prepayment online and select the currency that suits you best.

  3. Forget about the language barrier. There’s no need for you to explain anything to the driver, as he receives all the necessary information in advance.

This transport option is the best choice if you travel with small children or elderly. 

There is 10 km between the air hub and city center. The private transfer will take you there in 20 minutes. The journey cost is 22.

Taxi from Sofia Airport

Please avoid private drivers in front of the terminals and use the official service only — it’s called ‘OK Supertrans AD’, and its offices can be found in the Arrivals of both terminals. Besides offices, you can book a cab on the official website or by phone. Metered bright yellow cars are waiting close to the exits of both terminals.

The average price for a taxi to the downtown is 15 BGN or around 8.

At nights, tariffs increase. Also, you’ll have to pay for your call and waiting in a traffic jam. If you’re a big group, it may be difficult for you to find a large cab. In this case, it’s better to choose the Kiwitaxi service — our minibuses can accommodate up to 19 passengers.
