Romania’s capital is an interesting city with a lively student base and a surprising amount of museums. Those who rent a car in Bucharest will find plenty to see and do in the capital as well as the neighbouring countryside
Major and local car rental companies have representatives at Bucharest Airport.
Desks are located between the international departures hall (upper floor) and the arrivals hall of the airport.
In Romania, cars drive on the right hand side of the road. If you are not used to driving on this side of the road, it is worth taking a few minutes to take a practice drive around the car park of your rental car provider. Remember, the steering wheel will be on the left and the gearstick will be on the right.
Once you arrive at Bucharest airport, be sure to have all necessary documentation ready to present to the agent on the desk. Important documents include your passport, driving licence, credit card, booking confirmation voucher and other forms of identification requested by your car rental provider in their terms and conditions.
