How much for tolls

Post Posted: Sun Aug 26, 2007 11:13 pm

Hi all

Now all you lovely people out there that have driven over to Bulgaria and back, any idea how much the tolls cost in total there and back. Trying to decide if we can afford it, although we have a lot of stuff to take.

I think Saskia said 500 euros, but is that one way or return ????

As usual will appreciate any help.

Caroline

Hi there we only paid tolls on the Serbian side their tolls ranged from 15 euro's up to 30 euro's and we only went one way. So if you go via another route you may well not incur any tolls. But its just worth while to have some money ready just in case. Of course its also a good idea to pay for your fuel in cash too. Just so you do not get any of you credit cards cloned. So work out your route aproximate mileage. to how many miles you do to a full tank. plus your food, & and of course if you stay at any motels. Also one good point to consider is please fuel up at reconised garages like shell or similar. there are alot of garages that sell dirty fuel, this causes havoc for diesels, as many fellow travellers have found out including myself.

Hi there No we dont own it, some friends do. its easy to find, from the train station in Bourgas just head north and go passed Bulair hotel and turn right at the first crossroads. just as you go up a slight incline. Also theres a map on the website too. Unfortunately they dont do lamb yet. But your sure to get a warm welcome.

Petrol here is around 1.98 per litre so thats about 68pence per litre. Same for diesel too. But LPG is .98lev per litre

Hi saskia

Bugger !!!! my favourite meat too !! i dont understand why they dont sell lamb, even in Billa you cant buy a decent piece. Are there any more supermarkets like Billa, or is it the only one.

Take care, Caroline
