Romania car hire information

Rental cars are a fantastic way to see one of Europe’s most historical and awe-inspiring landscapes, Romania. Hire a car on your holiday in Romania and venture into the forests of Transylvania, trail up mountainsides or enjoy the hustle and bustle of the capital, Bucharest. Either way, there will be car rental companies to provide you with the best vehicle for your road trip. You will be driving on the right side of the road and overtaking vehicles on the left. Stay buckled up in the front and rear of the car and ensure your little one has the appropriate car seat. In urban areas, you will encounter many roundabouts, so always give way to traffic entering from the right, or you could receive an on-the-spot fine which traffic police are authorised to dish out. These will require 50% payment upfront, so be aware of the rules, or you may have to keep Romanian currency handy. Speed limits are different in urban areas, outside of urban areas and on the motorways. Look for a rental car comparison that can throw in a Sat Nav with your car hire in Romania, and you will be set to start your adventure.

In Romania, rental car companies will require driving licences issued in EU or EEA countries when you rent a car. Additionally, you will also be required to show your passport, and some car rental companies may want additional documentation, such as proof of residence. Your credit card will be required for your deposit and insurance unless paying by debit card, in which case you will have to check the conditions of the service provider.

Romania has some busy roads, many of which are motorways. The D1 National Road links Bucharest to the Hungarian border and is one of the busiest in the country due to passing through popular holiday spots. The DN2 passes through several Romanian cities and sees high volumes of traffic too. DN7 is another notoriously busy road, leaving from Bucharest and connecting to South-West Romania. If you are staying in the capital of Bucharest, you will find that the Barbu Vacarescu Boulevard is one of the busier roads in the city. Before you set out into the traffic with your car rental in Romania, check the traffic predictions via Sat Nav to avoid congestion.

Rental cars are a wonderful way to see the Romanian countryside. With some legendary roads, enthusiastic road trippers will find many scenic routes to enjoy. The Transalpina road is one of the highest routes in Romania and reaches the mountainside of the Pasul Urdele area. This route is one of few where you can touch the clouds and drive above them with your rental car through the Parang Mountains. The second highest road to enjoy with your car hire in Romania is Transfagarasan, which spans a long line of mountains and countryside. It has won several awards as Romania’s best scenic drive over the years and continues to be a highly popular road trip choice. The Bicaz Gorge route passes through the Hasmas Mountains and is a very narrow path that links Transylvania's famous forests to the city of Moldova. This route is also one of the more popular scenic drives to take with car hire in Romania.
