GETTING AROUND

the country

WE INVITE YOU TO

discover the many facets of Romania. It can be either a one day trip, a tour across the country or maybe a long weekend.

We'll start with this for obvious reasons - convenience. If you’re thinking of going from one part of the country to another, for example from Bucharest to Cluj-Napoca, Timisoara, Oradea, Suceava or Iasi, you should consider catching an internal flight.

Why? Because the 450 km between Bucharest and Cluj-Napoca which takes about 6-7h by car or 8-10h by train takes only 40 minutes by plane - and for a very affordable price. That's why it's the best way of travelling longer distances in Romania.

There are 3 low-cost companies (WizzAir, RyanAir and BlueAir) and the national airline Tarom that operate internal flights in Romania connecting major cities around the country.

- the most popular routes such as Bucharest to Cluj-Napoca or Timisoara even have 3-4 flights each day with different companies - so be sure to check all of them. Ticket prices start from €10 (per way) and can go up to 50-70€ if you buy them 2-3 weeks in advance and some companies like BlueAir give let you check-in 1 piece of luggage for free!

So if you're short on time and want to see as much of Romania without the stress and hassle of extra-planning, it’s worth saving time and energy and looking at internal flights. It's a cheaper option than renting a car and definitely much faster than taking the train or bus for long-distances.
