HOW TO STOP A CAB IN SOFIA


The short answer is "no problem", but if you think about it there are different options. Most visitors of the capital come from cities with a different rhythm of life. The organization of taxi services across the world is different and the normal behavior for us is strange to them.

Consider a few questions that are of interest to the visitors of the capital:

1. You can catch a taxi in one of two ways: by waving at a passing taxi or call a taxi. The first way seems easy - to wave at a passing taxi and wait for it to stop somewhere around you, if there is no "traveler" in it. The second is more difficult as it requires from you to have a mobile phone and to know the number of any taxi company to call.

Calling a taxi by phone requires you to know where you are, to explain or give address to the company so that it can send a taxi to your location.

2. You are waiting on the corner and no cab is passing - of course taxis in Sofia "rotate" around busy locations - in the center, around railway stations, shopping malls and hospitals – places at which the chance to "catch" clients increases. In this case you should move to a livelier place, and if it is in the evening, it should be well lit. It is good to stand in the direction of movement and in the direction towards which you will travel.

Look for a sign of a taxi stop. Go to the nearest larger building, bus station or hotel. It is good to save the phones of several taxi companies just in case: 02 91888 Eurolease Taxi.

3. In Sofia, billing is per kilometer, as there are different day and night tariffs. Further, there is price per minute for any waiting or stop. In the case when you have called a taxi by phone, there is an additional fee for the call. Taxi companies are obliged to display the prices for night and day tariff, the initial fee and the fee for the call in a visible spot. Many companies display the number of the car and the driver's photo and his name and surname in the car. Most of the cars are connected in one way or another with the headquarters of their company, which guarantees to a large extent the safety of the passengers and the driver in the car.

4. Payment is in cash in the Bulgarian lev and usually taxis do not accept credit cards. The driver of the vehicle should issue you a cash receipt. On it there are recorded mileages, the car has passed, and the minutes spent in waiting. It is good to save the receipts, because they have recorded the official carrier information and through them you can contact the company in case you have forgotten something in the car or there is another problem.

5. It is usually accepted that the driver of the cab will ask you by which route you would like to go. For the people, who know the city well this is an advantage and for the once that don’t, they should depend on the competence of the driver and his professionalism.

 And finally, in Sofia as in many other countries, taxis are yellow, but when choosing a cab you should go for the ones with impeccable appearance, appearance of the driver and condition in the cabin.

Have a nice trip!
