Pay for one and use two – this concept is where Rhodopes winter centre beat the competition in Bulgaria. Pamporovo resort joins forces with the nearby Mechi Chal and both compose a kind of ski vacation multiplex despite the connection between is accomplished only by shuttle buses bringing tourist from one place to another. There are plans in the making to link both resorts with slopes and lifts but even before the materialization of such scenario which will make that winter complex effectively the biggest on the Balkans, paying for a Pamporovo lift pass grants access to the piste of Mechi Chal too.

But it’s not vice-versa – you can pay for Mechi Chal only, the daily pass for the lift in the vicinity of the town of Chepelare amounts to 39 BGN (20 Euro). Cheaper than the Pamporovo ski pass costing 55 BGN (28 Euro) but the higher fee opens the possibility to run down on 15 slopes in the whole area while Mechi Chal alone has one piste alone even if it’s almost 3 km long.

The options for Pamporovo lift passes start from a half-day ride (39 BGN, for a 4 hours window in the morning or in the afternoon) and go up to 13 days.

And for those who will to ski all winter, the season card costs 1080 BGN (roughly 550 Euro).

For a week the fee for a child is 189 BGN (below 100 Euro), for the whole season – 597 BGN (just a bit above 300 Euro).

Every family vacation must be well-organized in order all the members of the family to remain satisfied. But how to achieve the perfect holiday when traveling with our kids, wife/husband and sometimes even with our dog! Is it possible to avoid the waiting at the airport, or to jump the queue when waiting for a customs check? Are we smart enough to organize the perfect family break, or actually it is a matter of sequence – not of intellect or so?

Well, whatever you or we to say, do not forget (never) that to travel with a family of 5, or even 6 (that will be funny) is a real adventure!! Sometimes you may have the feeling that you are the lead actor in an action film who never gives up and who is trying to the last moment to tame its children… And sometimes he even succeeds!

But when crossing the border and when we have to wait on the line for a documents check, the situation is little more complicated. We must mollify our children at all costs, simply because this is very important check we have to pass through… And if we are not able to do that, or it is very difficult for us to travel normally, the best option for us is to stay at home and to forget about the family vacations as well. Or to apply for NEXUS!

What is NEXUS and how it will help us!

The NEXUS cards, the NEXUS program and your membership there will help you cross the borders of Canada and the U.S. very fast, before the other travelers and avoiding the long lines in front of the kiosks (wherever you are).

Hopefully as soon as possible!

What I am going to do now?? – These are your first thoughts after you have seen that your NEXUS card is not valid… You have the possibility to undertake two steps: the first one is to renew your family package (recommended), as the second one is to use the old methods of travel (without the NEXUS program). The choice is yours!

The worst thing you can experience during your family trip is someone to steal your luggage. If we add to that your documents (or rather your stolen documents), the situation becomes much more complicated, because your passport or NEXUS card are the most important thing for you when traveling!! Without them, you can stay in the middle of nothing…

In case you do not like surprises and want everything to be as you planned, be careful and do not let some unpleasant moments to destroy your long-awaited family vacation. Try to find alternatives in case something goes wrong, so that to keep traveling. Provide a backup option that to save you from some unpleasant situations, or at least to help you find the best solution when things are already irreversible… Like the NEXUS card replacement! If you know this great service of the NEXUS program, will agree that nothing is lost. You can fix everything as soon as you have the right decision.

For example: when at the airport, someone steals your wallet where there are your documents and money. What you are going to do then? – Will start crying or will getting yourself together in order to resolve this huge problem? – We think that the second one is better for you, isn’t?

Even in this hard for everyone situation, we have to think right and adequately. Instead to panic, the best way to fix things is to apply for replacement of our important documents and as for the stolen money – forget them. In the long run: it is what it is! We do not have to get angry about money. They are earned! But the NEXUS cards are not and we must apply for them – for their replacement.

Replace your NEXUS family package and enjoy your life! It is really wonderful!
