    We flew out to our apartment in Bulgaria last week for a fortnight and as the £ is struggling against the Euro thought it may be a good idea to drive back in the car end of August until the weather turns bad instead of heading to Spain in September.
    Its many years since I did this run and it was then in a truck, so things have changed a lot.
    We intend staying with my semi tame professor in Munich for a couple of days on route, so that is the route I intend to take.
    Now my problem starts, which would be the best route down to southern Bulgaria from Munich, Austria, Slovenia, Serbia, Bulgaria, or Austria, Hungary, Romania Bulgaria. I know Romanian roads will not have improved much in the last 30 years, so that could be a deciding factor.
    The other question is, which countries do I require a vignette for, and does anyone have any idea of price of vignettes.

    Many thanks Pete, would that be Vienna, Budapest, Belgrade and then down to Sofia ?. If so that would suit me as I can do Belgrade in the day from Munich then down to Sunny beach the next day. A comfortable 4 days driving from Liverpool.

    Yes that's the route we take, staying over night in Budapest and Sofia. The road gets better each year.

    Is Serbia a toll road similar to France, Spain or do I need a vignette. Also what is required for Bulgaria.

    In Serbia it's toll booths and you can pay in Euros. Bulgaria you'll need to but a vignette at the border, just like with Austria and Hungary, cost 8 Euros for 7 days.
    Be careful at the border with Bulgaria, you'll find several kiosks/offices offering to sell you vignettes all at varying prices.

    All the motor policies I've had, have covered me for any country which is a member of the EU and others including Serbia.
