How to get from Sofia Airport to Bansko by bus?

You can take the bus from Sofia Airport to Bansko, but first, you need to reach downtown Sofia. The public bus station is located at Knyaginya Maria Luiza Blvd in the city center and you can reach it by metro, by bus or by taxi. Once you get there, you can purchase a ticket to Bankso from the cashier desks that cost 8,20 euros. You can check your ticket and follow the signs to the Bansko bus.

Buses leave daily at 08:30, 09:45, 11:25, 13:15, 14.00, and 16:45 and take around 3.5 hours. In that, you need to add the cost of transportation from Sofia Airport.

It is not the most convenient transport option, as the routes are not very frequent, and you may end up waiting for long before the next bus. Also, you need to transfer from the airport to the Central Bus station which is the Sofia city center.

How to get from Sofia Airport to Bansko by taxi?

Traveling by taxi to get to Bansko from Sofia Airport is another option. It is considered a convenient transport option as it offers a door-to-door service as it picks you up from the airport and takes you to the destination you want in Bansko.

They might charge you extra for any additional passenger or luggage.

You can find the yellow official caps outside the Arrivals Hall at both airport terminals. Before entering a taxi you need to book a ride at the counters before exiting the Terminal. They will give you a slip which you will give to the driver and pay at the end of your trip. Keep in mind to check the telephone number on the slip matches the number of the taxi. Otherwise, it might not be legit. It is also important to know that taxis will count the final fare depending on the traffic along the way.
