Can anyone please tell me if one requires a vignette for less than a day transit travel?
Last September(2016) about half an hour after crossing the border on the Sofia-Sandanski highway I was stopped and the policeman demanded a vignette. Since the site shows no charges for one day I hadn't bought one thinking that it was unnecessary as I was in transit(traveling for less than 3 hours between border posts). The policeman INSISTED that I had to have one.

Dear all,

I am in Greece now and I must return Sunday in Romania via Bulgaria and I will cross border from Makaza. Because Makaza is new and small cross border point, I don't find information if I can buy vignette for Bulgaria in Makaza cross border point.
Can somebody help me before Sunday with this information?
