Meet our experienced guide in Bucharest. The first attraction in your itinerary is Snagov Monastery, followed by Poienari Fortress (you need to climb over 1400 stairs to the top, but the views are worth the effort!).

11-Days Dracula Tours for Schools – Romania Holiday Packages

The price of food in sit-down restaurants in Romania is often higher than fast food prices or street food prices.Budget Your Trip
Transportation costs – Romania Travel Packages
Transportation costs depend on whether you choose to travel by subway, bus or taxi. According to Budget Your Trip, travelers spend about 79 lei/person on local transportation. Before getting into specifics, you should know that our itineraries provide transfer between attractions by car, minibus or coach depending on the number of travelers.
Buses or The Subway
If you choose to move around the city by bus or subway, you should know that, although you will pay less than on a taxi ride, the risks are also higher. They are usually very crowded, providing opportunities for pickpockets to steal your belongings – but you can reduce the risk of this happening by keeping your belongings within eyesight.
A taxi takes you to your exact destination and you don’t have to wait for your car in a crowded station. If you need to get somewhere fast, a taxi is a better option than the bus. Still, you should pay attention at certain type of drivers:
- If you are under the impression that the ride is taking too long, check a GPS map like Google Maps and make sure the driver is not circling you around to increase the amount on the meter. Some drivers take advantage of foreigners who don’t know the city and choose longer routes in order to charge more money.
- Avoid drivers who attempt to negotiate the fare upfront. They will ask for a fixed sum and keep the meter off. Beware, as this tactic is illegal and it only benefits them as the amount they require is usually a lot larger than the ride is actually worth.
For transfer between cities, you can choose to drive yourself (possibly in a rental car) or take a train. Either way, it is going to be a long trip, mostly because of poor infrastructure that causes you to go slower than you should. If you are in a hurry, know that we have airports in our major cities and you can take an internal flight. These are quite expensive, but, if you are really in a hurry, there’s no better solution to get to your destination fast.
Is it safe to visit Romania?
According to several rankings, Romania is a generally safe country. The Global Terrorist Database which ranks countries based on terrorist activity place us on position 138/163. Rest assured, there were no terrorist attacks in our country.
Furthermore, the Global Peace Index, which ranks countries based on militarization, society and security as well as domestic and interest conflict, places Romania on position 22/163.
The crime rate in our country is lower than the European average. This means that you don’t need to worry about being mugged in the street. While the crime rate is not problematic, corruption is still at a high level. If authorities propose a ‘mutually beneficial’ solution which seems to be stretching the law, you should refuse and seek legal justification.
Need to Know before traveling on Romania Holiday Packages
- Confirm your passport is valid for 6 months from when you think your trip will end. Don’t get stranded.
- Get comprehensive travel insurance to cover you and your gear. Get insurance that’s right for you and covers your activities in the places you’ll go. Remember, regardless of how healthy and fit you are, if you can’t afford travel insurance, you can’t afford to travel.
- Consider your physical and mental health. Get advice from your doctor if you’re unsure.
- See your doctor or travel clinic 8 weeks before you go for a basic health check
- Check if your medication is legal and available in the places you’re going. Take enough of your prescribed medicines to last the whole trip. Carry copies of your prescription and a letter from your doctor.
- Tell your bank you’re travelling and check if your cards will work. Have several payment options.
Driving in Romania
If you choose to extend your stay in Romania and tour more attractions, renting a car is a better idea than using public transportation especially if you have multiple destinations on your list. While traveling in the car, microbus or coach included in our tour, you can observe the surrounding traffic and get a general idea on what to expect.
- Inside cities, you will usually encounter heavy traffic and some drivers might break the law (crossing red lights, risky overtakes)
- Plan in advance and find a parking lot where you can leave your car; finding free parking spots next to your destination can be quite the challenge
- Outside cities, you will drive on National Roads a lot. Since there aren’t too many highways in our country, these roads can get quite crowded. Even if you don’t encounter a lot of traffic, you will find yourself having to slow down a lot because of the state of some road portions or because you are driving through a village
Since the crime rate is low in Romania, you can walk on our streets safely, without worrying that someone could mug you. However, you may encounter pickpockets. While these people are not violent, their intention is to steal your belongings, preferably without you even noticing. They usually operate in crowded places such as the bus or the subway, which is why we always recommend leaving any valuables in the hotel safe when possible.
If you are on a bus or riding the subway, always keep your belongings within eyesight. This discourages pickpockets who would otherwise attempt to cut your bag open and disappear with your items.
According to Romanian laws:
- Always carry photo ID – you should keep the original passport or ID card somewhere safe and carry photocopies with you
- You are prohibited from taking photos of airports, military sites or other secure locations (this includes drones – be careful, as you might have a non-pleasant surprise if you accidentally fly a drone in military airspace)
- Penalties for drug offences are severe. Depending on the seriousness of the crime, you can face up to 20 years in jail. Authorities are focusing more on finding the dealers rather than the users, but it’s always best to avoid getting in trouble
You should get good Travel Insurance before you leave for a foreign country. This is an important step no matter where you are traveling. Sometimes, even if you or even us, the tour operators, do our best to avoid this, unexpected things can happen. In such a case, your Travel Insurance makes sure neither you nor your family suffers finacially.
A great example of the importance of Travel Insurance is healthcare. If you end up requiring medical services for any reason, you should know that the costs for these services can be quite high outside your country. Furthermore, the free care or subsidized costs you can benefit from in your country will not apply elsewhere. If you have a good travel insurance, your insurer will cover these costs, saving you from an unpleasant situation.
How many days do you need in Romania?
Throughout the year, we organize several types of Romania Holiday Packages, intended for people who have different budgets and who are trying to accomplish different goals on their holiday.
