      Great Equipment Great location for Gondola. Great price online
      We hired our children’s skis and boots here online via Aplinerentals. Skis and boots for 6 days £25 per set. Quick and easy showed booking ref no hard sell of upgrades or insurance. Not the most friendly staff but pleasant enough. Good standard of hire gear next year we will return and instead of taking our own adult skis and boots we too will be renting here again. Quality of skis and boots were very good had an issue with daughters boots no problem switched easy and fuss free.

      High quality ski provider near to the slopes
      We were first time skiers and Traventuria provided us with ski rental, ski lessons, storage each day, lift passes and a snowboard taster. The equipment was high quality (some of it new), the lessons were fantastic (thank you Oggy) and the snowboard taster was excellent as well. They were flexible in changing things around when needed and supportive in explaining to us all the different areas. Geographically they are near to all the main ski slopes - generally 2-10 minutes walk away (nursery slope c. 10 mins). We would not hesitate to use them again in the future and are really happy that we chose them for our first ski experience. Thank you.

      Great ski hire
      Best value at booking and very easy process from booking to collection. My skis were brand new too! Unwrapped as they were passed to me which was amazing. Definitely able to tell the difference compared to older ones that are not waxed well. It does get busy in there and hot but it was always manageable. Lockers are good value, not trying to rip you off either as they suggested 3 of us could fit in one locker (we could with good maneuvering). The space around lockers is tight but again if you're organised its easy to get in + out quickly enough. Location is also handy, only 5 min walk from the gondola. Would definitely hire from them again

      Wouldn't use again
      Don't know why the reviews are so high unless it's because it was half term. Staff are pretty rude and more interested in sitting down and chatting to each other than helping customers. It's absolute bedlam in there, organising ski hire you don't get any help and it's so chaotic. It's about 5-7 min walk to slopes and the shop is also down steps, spend a nit more and go somewhere closer to the shops. If you have your own equipment you can store it at the end of the day for 5 lev at a lovely little place next to the ice angel restaurant bottom of the slopes.

      Skis, boots, poles, locker and ski pass shop
      This company was the ski hire and ski pass company used by our holiday company. At first it was a little painful as we had arrived in resort quite early in the day and our time for ski equipment was quite alot later in the day, which I knew but couldn't see it being an issue. However it was though for the life of me I can't see why. They would sort out our equipment when we first arrived if we paid an extra cost. This seemed quite poor and bad customer service. I should say that they did hold onto my boots that I had bought with me, rather than having to carry them around town to waste the necessary time. Once we got to the centre at our designated time our equipment was fitted, we paid for a heated locker that was operated using our lift passes which is a nice touch. Everything went well and especially for my partner who needed boots fitted they spent time to get them right. The skis, boots and poles were all great condition with no issues

      Beware
      Beware - no safety training or first aid probably not fully insured with liability insurance bad company. We booked a trip through balken for this experience, 4 adults and 5 children, no proper instruction, helmets not suitable sizes, we went to the top, road was full of bumps and not smooth, one driver crashed and hit a tree, female came flying over the top of the bike, inexperienced staff with no first aid training and no first aid kit or blankets, no WiFi or phone signal and they had no way of communication to call for help. Male rider was seriously injured and Unconcious with head injury, they argued about damage to the skidoo had to be told to ring an ambulance and go for help, no first aid training, luckily one of our party worked for NHS and advised to keep male in ground, they argued and didn't listen and when he woke up tried to walk him down the mountain. Blood coming from his ears horrendous experience we were very lucky it wasn't one of us or our children. Staff didn't care didn't even apologise to us and didn't care about anyone involved. Some of our group witnessed it and was in shock over what happens kids were crying and very cold We went into hut to get our stuff, no first aid kits. We reported it to Balken they weren't really interested and continued to sell this excursion. We were told by Balken to go and get a refund from the skidoo club went and spoke to the owner who had no intention of giving us out money backnand was really rude. It's also classed as an extreme sport so if anything happens your not covered my normal travel insurance.

      Brilliant service and support for my Dad and I!
      Fantastic service as always! The team were amazing over email and really helped! I used them before and I would always use them in Bovorets for lessons and hire. The heated lockers are superb and so close to the slopes!

      Appalling Customer Service
      0 stars If I could leave less I would. Arranged a transfer from the airport and prepaid. Emailed and checked the booking process before hand but they still didn’t arrive to collect. Leaving 5 people at the airport in the middle of winter at 1am with no way of getting to the hotel, resulting in having to pay five times as much by taxi. Spoke with them in the shop and they apologised and said it was a genuine mistake, told to email head office. Head office have refused to refund the amount paid, never mind the cost of the taxis even after I sent them photos of correspondence and booking confirmation!!! Appalling customer service and very rude.

      Good service
      Good quality equipment with speedy set up on the day we arrived. Staff spoke excellent English and explained the fitting process to my kids really well. Only negative was that I paid extra for higher quality / newer kit as I can ski well and this was not acknowledged (had exactly the same skis as my husband!) - not worth complaining about at the time as all kit was good quality. They were happy to accommodate a request to change an uncomfortable helmet mid week. I would use again and recommend to others. Kids also had lessons with Ogi, who was brilliant!

      Careful if inconsiderate youths
      Booked this with my wife who had never been on a skidoo before and was soooo looking forward to it. 3 other groups of ‘youths’ also booked with us. Obvious from setting off they were going to clown around. We were in the middle of them when we set off. 2 behind overtook us on a VERY narrow track and nearly ran us off down a slope. This completely upset and unnerved my wife and we swapped seats ending her driving. Words were had when we stopped and the ‘youths’ didn’t care nor the Skidoo leader. We reported them when we were back about their reckless dangerous behaviour and the rental company also didn’t care. Nature of the beast basically with no apology. Make sure you are at the back then at least idiots are where you can see them.

    Thank you to everyone especially Georgie and Darry! Had a great week of lessons, my first time skiing and can’t believe how much I picked up and improved through the week. The setup is excellent with heated lockers and the equipment is pretty much brand new! Everyone is friendly and really helpful.
    Thank you and I’ll definitely be back next year!

    Came for a stag in Borovets. All was booked beforehand online which was great and convenient. Sorted out transfers to and from the airport for us.

    Great price for equipment hire and lessons.

    Stefan was our instructor. He has been great, we were all beginners and he was very patient and were able to pick it up very quickly.

    Thanks so much!

    Stefan has helped my group of 9 beginners pick up skiing very quickly. He has a lot of patience and very clearly demonstrates the different ski moves.
    The company itself is very efficient in sorting out transfers and the equipment rental.

    Despite the good reviews I do not recommend. As a beginner skier I had no help with boot fitting service, issued wrong size skis (too long for a beginner), paid for premium but definitely did not have 1st season boots/equipment etc. They were so busy it was an inconvenience to them when I asked for help. Eventually managed to get skis changed but then the bindings were wrong and my boot wouldn't stay in. Was also issued different size poles! Another trip back and wasted time just sorting equipment.
    I was put into the wrong group in ski school being among more advanced skiers than myself - this just made me lose my confidence.
    I would not recommend for equipment hire (if you do don't pay extra for premium because you won't get it).
    My friends went with Hunters Ski Hire just by the gondola - much more personalised service and accommodating to them

    Dear Gael, Thank you for sharing your feedback, but please, move it to the right location as it does not describe the service provided by our company. As seen from the lots of positive reviews here and on other social media, Traventuria highly values the personal touch in communication with customers and we always take a lot of attention and put up a lot of work when we serve our customers. Boot fitting is the process during the ski fitting that we define it as a determinant and always pay special attention to it. Also, we are one of the only companies that do equipment changes free of charge and we never mind a customer trying every single pair of boots or skis in the shop until they find what fits them best. Boots are being adjusted to the skis with the help of a completely computerized colored system and if the boot does not fit the skis, it means the information provided by the customer during the fitting about their weight, height, and level is incorrect. The poles are being stored in couples and I find it hard two different poles to be given to a customer, but if so, this is a problem that can be resolved in literally 5 seconds and I am sure my colleagues do so if there is a mistake. The groups in our ski school are divided according to the ski level of the customers. We have top-level instructors and a representative on top, who form the groups. If they have put you in the advanced group, it means that your level by that time fitted that group. However, we never decline when a customer asks to change their group, as we have plenty of different groups and a lot of instructors. We also provide private classes and maybe this is the better option for an insecure (in their own abilities) skier. The private lessons give the possibility to the instructor to concentrate only on one customer (or one family) and maybe this was the better option for you. Traventuria invests thousands of euros every year in newer equipment and receives nearly 1000 new pairs of skis, boots, and boards at the start of every season. The worn equipment is being moved out of the shop and it's not used for rentals. Our computer system is regularly updated. When you get your equipment and sign the paperwork, you can easily see what level equipment you got. We are also always ready to react to clients' complaints, change the equipment or upgrade it to a better level free of charge in order to meet our customer's expectations. I will kindly ask you to remove your review or post it to the place you have actually visited as it's definitely not our shop. Kind regards, Annie Krumova

    - Good quality equipment, modern storage facilities, friendly and helpful staff.
    - Brilliant instructors who helped us progress in skill and confidence throughout the week, as well as having fun. We had George on our first day and Peter for the rest of the week, who was patient and calm with a good sense of humour!
    - Transfers to and from the airport were on time and efficient.

    Would highly recommend!

    Dear Lisa, I appreciate the time you made to leave a review on our service, it is great to hear of your experience. It was our ambition all along to turn something usually known as 'arduous' and time consuming into a positive 'hassle-free' experience. Unlike our prices, we always keep our standards really high! Peter and George have been with us for so many years now. Their positivism, professionalism, and local knowledge are precious to both our team and customers. Thanks again from all of us in Traventuria and we look forward to delivering our service to you again another time! Best regards, Annie Krumova

    We hired all our ski equipment, lift passes and private lessons through Traventuria in Borovets this February half term, could't fault them. Tried on the equipment the night before our hire started so that we didn't have to spend time the next day faffing about with it all, which was great. Booked private lessons for myself and 2 teenage sons who hadn't done any skiing at all. Met Rady with no problems at all outside the Rila hotel. He was fantastic, so patient, informative and jovial, he made our skiing lessons such a pleasure. Would definitely recommend and will be using them next time we go.

    We had group Snowboarding lessons for 5 days with Radi. He was a brilliant instructor, really knowledgeable about everything like the right boot fit, bindings, foot position, stance and board. I had done Snowboarding for 1 day years ago on holiday so I was an absolute beginner. Thanks to Radi at the end of the 5 days i could heel and toe turn, stop with ease and even attempted a few red slopes confidently.

    I will definitely book in again next year for advanced lessons. All the staff at Traventuria were really friendly and professional too.

    I consider the service was good, the instructor was very friendly and it was patient with me as I have never done skiing.
    It will be good to know how many people is taking the course, as bigger the group less change to get much attention from the instructor and more waiting to do your one trails.
    However, I think is good value for money, thank you to Stefan from Traventuria who was the instructor, very nice guy.

    Excellent service provided by Traventuria who made sure we had nothing to worry about as soon as we landed in Sofia Airport.
    All staff we encountered were friendly and helpful but our instructor George really made the holiday, he went out of his way to make sure we all learned as much as possible while skiing and had an enjoyable holiday overall.
    Varying skill levels and schedules were accommodated to, really can't recommend enough!!

    The rental process was very easy. We collected the night before which was very convenient as it saved any queues or delays in the morning.

    Our instructor Radi (sorry if I have misspelled it!) was great. We improved drastically under his tuition. He was very frank with his criticisms which really helped but at the same time was quick to praise when we got it correct. He was a lovely guy and spoke good English. We highly recommend and will be back!

    Thanks again Radi!
