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

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.

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).

Bucharest Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Get your rental car at Bucharest Airport! Then drive to the city center so you can see the famous Parliament Palace, the Curtea Veche church and the Patriarchal Cathedral, and the Athenaeum building. Park your rental outside Lipscani, the old city center, so you can take a stroll through its historic streets. Visit the National Museum of Contemporary Art, the Museum of the Romanian Peasant, or the Old Court Museum where you’ll learn about the Wallachian princes that used to rule Romania.

Bucharest is a lively city with lots to do, and there are green areas where you can unwind, too. Drive to beautiful parks like Herăstrău or the city’s botanical gardens to take a wonderfully long walk. At an authentic Romanian restaurant, try local foods like mamaliga, friptura steak, and ciorba taraneasca soup.

Bucharest’s a great destination, but the rest of Romania has even more to offer. With a longer term car rental you can visit the Transylvanian Mountains, the Black Sea coast, or even neighboring Bulgaria, Serbia, or Hungary. Picking up your rental car at Bucharest Airport and dropping it off at a different location is easy. Start planning your adventure today!.

Bucharest Airport is also called Henri Coandă International Airport and Aeroportul Internațional Henri Coandă București.

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.
