Guide to Hire A Car In Romania

  • Age Limit: You must be 21 to rent a car in Romania. If you’re under 25, expect higher fees. Check with the rental company for extra age rules.

  • Weekend Traffic: Weekends mean heavy traffic in Romania, especially between big cities like Brasov and Bucharest. It’s best to avoid driving then.

  • Driving Permit: If you're from outside the EU, like the US or Canada, get an International Driving Permit (IDP) to drive in Romania.

  • Road Rules: Drive on the right side, wear seatbelts, and use proper seats for kids under 3 or under 135cm tall. Don’t drink any alcohol before driving.

  • Car Choice: For city driving, pick a smaller, cheaper car. If you're heading off-road, go for a 4-wheel drive SUV or crossover.

  • Hidden Fees: Watch out for extra charges like insurance or GPS. Ask the rental company to explain all fees before you agree.

  • High Season Prices: From May to September, prices go up. Book early to get better rates during busy times.

  • Insurance Options: If you rent often, consider year-round insurance for around 40-50 euros. Check if you already have insurance through your credit card.
