In Bulgaria you can pick up and drop off your convertible car rental from Bulgaria in a range of different locations.
The price quoted on the search engine includes insurance all taxes with no extras to pay. Depending on your location, you may be driving on the right hand side of the road so please drive very carefully. Matters are not helped by poor road conditions in certain areas of Bulgaria.

One of the most popular pick up places in any location is the airport.

Austria could be busy at your time of travel so pre-booking a car could be essential if you are touring Austria.

Most modern soft top cars have automatic folding roofs or hoods as they are known. Many people use the opportunity of a car hire abroad to test out a soft top vehicle, as sometimes it is just not practical to use a convertible at home for everyday use.
