Bucharest Airport Otopeni Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

The capital and by far the largest city of Romania, Bucharest is the country’s economic, cultural, and entertainment hub. With plenty of history to explore, as well as important remains from more recent eras, the city is one of the most interesting destinations in Southeastern Europe. These are three of Bucharest’s most worthwhile attractions:

  • Palace of Parliament. Overshadowed only by the Pentagon and the Sappaya-Sapasathan in Thailand, Bucharest’s Palace of the Parliament is the third-largest administrative building in the world. Not every native of Bucharest loves the building — it was built during the infamous years of Nicolae Ceausescu's regime — but there’s no denying that it has become one of the symbols of the city. Nowadays, the building continues to host parliamentary sessions and also gives home to cultural institutions like the Romanian Museum of Contemporary Art and Museum of Totalitarianism.
  • Museums. Besides the two aforementioned ones, there are plenty of great museums in Bucharest. From monumental institutions like the National Art Museum to the wonderfully niche Firefighters, Village, Folk Art, and Romanian Peasant Museums, there’s something for every visitor to enjoy. 
  • Royal Palace. First built in the 19th century, completed in the 20th, and significantly renovated in the 21st, the Royal Palace of Bucharest is one of the most monumental buildings in Romania. The residence of the Romanian kings until the monarchy was abolished in 1947, it is known for its elegant halls, statues, and interior. The palace is also home to the aforementioned National Museum of Art.

FAQ

What is involved in taking the car across borders to Bulgaria and/or Serbia?
First, be sure to check the rental conditions of the company you would like to rent from to know if they allow taking their cars to the countries you would like to travel to. Most rental companies allow their cars to be taken to EU countries like Bulgaria. Some companies do not allow you to take a car to Serbia, though.

You must receive permission to cross borders in advance (at least 5 days before the rental begins). You will also be charged an additional fee, the amount of which depends on the rental company.
