The cheapest way to get from the airport to the hotel is by bus, obviously! The ride takes around 45 minutes and costs just 1.5 euro.

There is always the third option, which is to rent a car. At the airport, you can find many car rental offices where you can pick your car. As a general rule, I advise you to book your car online and to pick it up from the airport.

This is the safest way: you can pick the car you want, you have enough time to read all the terms and conditions before you sign the papers and you can secure the best price for your car.

2. Why visit Sunny Beach Bulgaria beaches

There are two main reasons why I tell you to visit this Bulgarian resort: it is cheap and extremely beautiful.

The prices are more than reasonable for those looking for a beach holiday and the place is as beautiful as Algarve Portugal.

With less than 30 euros 2 persons can eat at a pretty fancy restaurant. In this price are also included two glasses of wine and a 3 courses meal per person!

Not to mention the accommodation! The prices per room in a hostel starts from 10 euro per night and goes up to 20-40 euros for Airbnb and more than 50 euro per night for hotels.

But besides the low prices, there is the beach, which is incredibly beautiful. There are plenty of sand strips including Irakli and Pomorie.

Most hotels from the resort offer beachfront views and have their private beach with sunbeds and umbrellas where you can relax. Along the huge strip of sand, there are many bars where you can run away from the summer hit and enjoy a cocktail at sunset.
