Probably the easiest and quickest route to Bulgaria is through Austria, Slovenia, Croatia and Serbia. The roads are good all the way. You'll need to buy vignettes (road tax) and road tolls on the way; you also need to buy Green Card insurance from your insurer in the U.K. for crossing Serbia. This is VERY IMPORTANT because if you don’t, it will cost you 90 Euros to purchase insurance at the border. 
From 2012 you don't have to actually carry a Green Card to travel through Serbia but you will have to show that your insurance covers you. 

The Serbs have a reputation for corruption. Personally, I’ve never had any problems this way but the Serbs do sometimes target foreigners with van or trailer loads of items so be prepared and make a complete itinerary so you can show the customs officials if asked. 
Always stick to the speed limits through Croatia and Serbia. Croatia have very large fines for speeding and the Serbs will ask for a cash fine of whatever amount they choose Wink
