Irent advices for parking areas
Parking is allowed only if there is a parking sign available. In Sofia there are parking areas marked in green and blue where you can park your car after paying the toll by sending a message on 1302 or paying directly to the employee of the company “Parking areas and Garages”. You pay per hour. After sending the message you shall receive a confirmation for the payment. You will be notified when your period is over. In larger cities there are a lot of prepaid parking areas – the price is around 2 lv. If you shall travel by plane you can use our service parking area on the airport. This is a very appropriate way to guarantee a parking spot on the airport you will depart.
