If you don’t want to drive your camping vehicle into Veliko Tarnovo, then it is very easy to organise a local taxi service.
Dimitar, who speaks English, organises our local taxi service. Dimitar can arrange any number of taxis for you. Each taxi can carry up to 4 people. The price for one taxi from the campsite to the centre of Veliko Tarnovo is 16.00 Leva (in 2021).
You can call Dimitar on : 00 359 877 767 200 or you can ask at the Reception and we will organise the taxi for you.
Please remember to wear a face mask in the taxi to stop the spread of Coronavirus.
Can I Take my dog in the Taxi?
If you wish to take your dog in the taxi then tell Dimitar or the Receptionist when you book the taxi. Some taxis do not allow dogs in their vehicles but most taxis will allow dogs with prior notice so that the driver can put a protective cover on the seats of the vehicle.
How can I pay for the taxi?
Payment for most taxis is only in cash Bulgarian Leva. At the moment most taxis do not operate credit / debit card POS terminals for payment. You will receive a receipt for a cash payment based on the rates displayed in the front and side windows of the taxi. If you do not have Bulgarian Leva then ask to be taken to a ATM to take some money from the cash machine – you will need some local currency for a coffee or a refreshing beer!
How do I get back to the campsite ?
There are many taxi points across the city – just look for the lines of yellow cars. The fee for the taxi to the campsite will be on the meter as the fee depends on where you take the taxi from. Most of the taxi drivers know the campsite and quite a few speak English but to make sure you get back to the campsite easily bookmark this page in your browser.
Because the Bulgarian sentence below, which you can show to the taxi driver says
“Please drive me to the campsite in Dragizhevo”
Моля да ме закарате до къмпинга в село Драгижево.
If you have any problems you can call the campsite and we will help with translation or directions.
