Guide

The city of Plovdiv, is the 2nd largest city in Bulgaria after Sofia, but from the northern region perspective, it is the largest and considered to be the most important city. Approximately 340,000 people live in Plovdiv, and is said to be one of the oldest cities in Europe. Armies from the cities of Troy, Mycenae, Rome, Carthage and Constantinople were said to once rule the city of Plovdiv so there is a lot of historic landmarks here. To see the sights in style, and to save on airport transfers, book car hire with us in advance of travel.

Explore Plovdiv

Following the Balkan War and World War I, Plovdiv became one of the places where thousands of war refugees go to and many of them, since then, have settled here. The most known tourist objects in Plovdiv are the Roman Amphitheatre, Roman Stadium and Roman Aqueduct that were the remains of the great Roman Empire when they once ruled here.

Be sure to visit the Bachkovo Monastery around 30kms south of Plovdiv, and whilst down this way take a look at the Asen's Fortress, with beautiful views. Nebet Tepe, also referred to as one of the seven hills in Plovdiv, offers tourists fantastic views of the Rhodope mountains. There is also an ancient 12th century fortress and its walls on top of the hill.

Transport

Buses, taxis, trains, and trolleybuses all operate throughout Plovdiv and its neighbouring towns and cities. It is a major international transport hub with Plovdiv International Airport located only 20kms south of Plovdiv city. If this is your arrival point then be sure to book car hire online in advance, so your vehicle will be ready for collection on your arrival.

Getting around the city is possible on foot but if you are the exploring kind then opt for car hire as your choice of transport. Not all public services will get you to the more secluded, rural areas surrounding Plovdiv.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place.
