Here is the latest information concerning COVID-19 and renting a car on DiscoverCars.com.

We are working around the clock to keep up with the constantly-changing situation throughout the world so we can provide you with up-to-date information regarding travel restrictions, rental branch opening hours, shuttle services, safety measures, and more. Our Customer Support team is ready to assist you any time, night or day.

If seeking general travel advice, we strongly recommend consulting the guidance of your government and the World Health Organization.

Your health and safety are of the utmost importance to us.

If you do travel, we want you to be as safe as possible while doing so. Thus, we have added information in our search results letting you know which rental companies are disinfecting their vehicles to prevent the spread of the virus.

A badge is shown next to all cars that we have confirmed are disinfected between each and every renter.

Search filter

Use the filter on the left-hand side of the search results to only see vehicles that are confirmed to be thoroughly disinfected.

We understand your need for flexibility.

We’d like to tell you that we’ve become more flexible, but the truth is that we were always flexible. If you need to change the dates of your rental or you decide to travel somewhere else, you can modify your booking in the My Booking section without charge (although the rental price may change).

Why rent a car in Romania?

Romania is a great destination to travel around by car. Both its nature and its regional cultures are incredibly diverse for the country’s size. Romania is easily accessible and constantly developing, but still retains an historical and untamed feeling that you won’t find in many other places in Europe.

Top ways to enter Romania

  • Bucharest Otopeni Airport: Also known as Bucharest-Henri Coandă after a Romanian inventor, the main airport of the capital city is the busiest in the country. Otopeni Airport handled nearly 14 million travelers in 2018 and is served by around 20 different airlines, including the national carrier TAROM, as well as a number of low-cost companies.
  • Cluj Avram Iancu Airport: Serving the city of Cluj-Napoca in the northwestern part of the country, Avram Iancu Airport handled 2.7 million travelers in 2018. The airport is a large hub for the low-cost company Wizz Air and also has flights by more than ten other airlines.
  • Timișoara Airport: Serving the city of Timișoara near the borders with Hungary and Serbia, this airport handled 1.5 million travelers in 2018. It has flights by ten different airlines (although some are only active seasonally) and offers flights to and from France, Spain, Germany, and many other European countries.
  • Iasi Airport: Largest in the northeastern part of the country, Iasi Airport is on the border with Moldova and near Ukraine. The airport has flights by eight different airlines, serving domestic routes, as well as flights to foreign destinations in Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa.
  • By land: It’s possible to rent a car in a neighboring country and then drive to Romania, although you should ask your rental car provider in advance if they permit it. Depending on your citizenship, you may or may not need a visa to enter Romania or any of its neighboring countries. Some large international airports near Romania are Sofia Airport in Bulgaria, Belgrade Airport in Serbia, and Budapest Airport in Hungary.

Top cities and places to visit

  • Transylvania: Transylvania is home of to rich history, pretty cities like Sibiu and Brasov, and, of course, Dracula. Yet it is the region’s nature - forests, mountains, and wildlife - that is its most stunning attraction.
  • Black Sea Coast: From mouth of Danube to beaches of Constanța and Vama Veche, Southeast Romania is a fun place to visit. The larger region of Dobrogea is interesting to get to know as well.
  • Bucharest: Romania’s eclectic capital city has plenty to offer, and the more you explore it, the more exciting it becomes.
  • Moldavia: A place of stunning fortresses and delicious wine, this part of Romania is a place of distinct culture and lifestyle.
  • Oltenia: Traditional, rural, and hot-blooded, Southwest Romania is the most hospitable part of the country.

Most popular rental car

The most popular rental car in Romania is the Dacia Logan, but the Skodia Fabia and the Opel Astra are also in high demand among travelers.

Crossing Borders

Romania shares a border with Hungary, Ukraine, Moldova, Bulgaria, and Serbia. While a member of European Union (EU), Romania is not a Schengen Area member state. Of Romania’s neighbors, only Hungary is a Schengen Area member.

Bulgaria, Serbia, Moldova, and Ukraine each have their own visa policy and you may or may not need a visa to visit them, depending on your citizenship. If you plan to enter one of these countries from Romania during your rental period, we strongly advise you to get in touch with your Ministry of Foreign Affairs in advance to find out about any potential visa requirements.

Some car rental providers allow you to cross national borders and even drop off your car in a different country, while others don’t. If you’d like to cross a national border during your rental period, make sure to check the terms and conditions before booking a car. Learn more about cross-border rentals in our FAQ section. 

Most popular types of rental car

The most popular rental car in Romania is an economy, but compact and fullsize are also often picked. 

Top driving routes

  1. Bucharest - Brasov (185 km / 115 mi) Start in the plains where Romania’s first city is located, and in just a couple of hours you’ll be in the heartland of Carpathians. The scenery will be stunning, but remember that it is always at least a couple of degrees colder in the mountains. The religious center of Sinaia and winter resort town Predeal make for great stops on the way.
  2. Cluj-Napoca - Sibiu (273 km / 169 mi) The route between the beautiful Transylvanian cities can be done in less than five hours, but Târgu Mureș and Sighișoara that will be on the way are, while smaller, just as interesting and historic.
  3. Constanta - Varna (155 km / 96 mi) The distance between the two beach cities can be done in less than three hours. Traveling along the coast for the whole route will take a bit more time, but will be a lot more picturesque. Note that Varna is in Bulgaria and you’ll have to cross a national border, so first check with your rental car provider to find out if they allow it. 

Car Rental Prices

  • Station wagons - from $33 per day
  • Large cars - from $44 per day
  • Medium cars - from $31 per day
  • People Carriers/Vans - from $65 per day
  • Premium cars - from $135 per day
  • Small cars - from $25 per day
