Theres also a high volume of travel to the UK, Germany and Austria as many multinational companies have their European headquarters in these countries ... Weve seen an increasing number of companies that have their head offices in Romania extend their operations to Bulgaria which has increased travel volumes over the border. There is also demand for specialist marine and offshore travel services in Bulgaria as well as travel management specific to the mining and resource industries.
