Bulgaria Travel News - Taxi Companies In Sofia May Increase Prices

Taxi transport in Sofia may increase by 18-20 stotinki per kilometer because of the inflation of fuels and car maintenance.
According to the Chair of private transporters Rumen Krumov there must be an increase of the price of the service, but for now it is difficult to forecast when Sofia companies will decide to do it, "Dnevnik" reveals.
"On the world market petrol decreases in price, but this has not been reflected on prices in Bulgaria. A 15% increase is logical in order to equalize the taxi service with the price increase of fuels", Krumov said.
He added that car maintenance has increased by over 10% and service stations have also increased their prices. Taxi fares increased last September, when Sofia companies "O'kay supertrance" and "Za edno evro" increased prices by 20%.
Back then the day fare jumped from 49 to 59 stotinki and the night fare - from 59 to 70 stotinki. According to clients, however, companies must not increase their price, because traffic jams in Sofia make it more expensive anyway, and taxis profit more from the stay fare. Thus, for one and the same route the price now is substantially higher compared to last year.

Very professional company. We had 5 bikes delivered at the airport in excellent condition (3 of which were brand new! ). Our one week bicycle trip was just great and Motoroads picked up our group 300km away to return back to the airport. Sioufi
