Times are subject to change but the Tarom schedule is less convenient for those wishing to travel onwards into Transylvania - the outward arrival misses the night sleeper train connections, and the return flight leaves early so a night in Bucharest may be required.
Other European airlines also provide daily connections to Bucharest, and Timisoara, from the United Kingdom but require a brief change of planes in Europe. Carpatair f ly between Timisoara and several cities in Germany and Italy, and between Cluj and Budapest.

Driving in Romania is on the right-hand side, like the rest of continental Europe. Most major trunk roads are in good condition, following an intensive road reconstruction programme. However, traffic on arterial roads can be heavy with large trucks, vans and minibuses jockeying for position while many cities are congested during the day!
Secondary roads are variable in condition but traffic is light so it becomes a pleasure to drive if you are not a hurry. It is important to slow down in villages and on country road where encounters with horse-drawn carts, flocks of geese and other livestock are common place. For the same reasons driving at night can be hazardous and is not recommended. Please refer to our Advice and Car Hire pages for additional information about drivng conditions.

Most of the vehicles used by suppliers we recommend in Bucharest are new, air-conditioned Mercedes Vito people carriers with room for several guests and luggage.

If you prefer to explore the city on your the escorts will look after your baggage. However, please note that for transfers from Bucharest Otopeni Airport to central Bucharest or the North station can take 90 minutes due to severa traffic congestion, especially around Baneasa.
This means that you should allow a minimum of 3 hours between flight arrival and the departure of trains from Bucharest Nord station. An alternative option if you are taking a train north into Transylvania, is to book a transfer from the airport to Ploiesti, a journey of about 60 minutes. Trains stop at Ploiesti about minutes after departing Bucharest.
If your destination is Brasov, Poiana Brasov or Sinaia it is much quicker to take a car from Otopeni airport direct. This avoids Bucharest, and if there are two or more travelling the cost would be little more, of not cheaper, than the city transfer and train. With the advent of inexpensive flight services to Cluj, it is now easier to travel into Transylvania.
Inexpensive transfers by scheduled air-conditioned minibuses can also be arranged from Budapest Airport to Timisoara, Arad, Oradea and Cluj.
Transfers are often normally built into holiday packages or tailormade itineraries. Transfers are normally only available in conjunction with flight, rail or accommodation bookings.

Local branch lines fan out from several cities into the surrounding regions. The network is still dense and far reaching though local branch line trains may operate to schedules which are more convenient to local people travelling to work or market rather than to the traveller. These include services around Brasov, in the Eastern Carpathians and some branclines around Sibiu. Services are operated operated by refurbished, second-hand European rolling stock and are generally very reliable.
There has been much investment over the last few years in new trains, stock and infrastructure including the complete upgrading of the line from Bucharest to Brasov and ongoing work to the main international corridor routes.
However, some services and frequencies have been cut back and a number of inter-city servcies have been operating over the last two years with just 2 or 3 carriages. It is therefore important to econfirm schedules from time to time.
On account of its mountainous nature, Romania is ideal for anybody looking for a rail holiday with several scenic routes cossing the Carpathians. You are likely to be pleasantly surprised by the reliability and frequency of most Romanian trains, though journey times can be long on account of the terrain and distances covered, and the condition of some of the stock used on Accelerat or local stopping services is poor see below.
Greenhouse gas emissions caused by UK air travel have doubled in the past 13 years from In addition aircraft emissions which go directly into the stratosphere have 2. Train travel is no solution for a short trip to eastern Europe but it is certainly worth considering for a longer holiday where stopovers and spectacular scenery can be incorporated into the overall experience.

All of these services are indicated in the table above to the right. Please note that due to the layout of the carriages there is less luggage space than in the older, compartment carriage trains of other trains. The trains were clean, air-conditioned and offer a very good service and are efficient the pride of Romanian Railways but the design is that of a fast commuter train so they offer relatively little luggage space.
Someof them are not as comfortable as normal Intercity or Rapid trains over long distances, though this has been addressed on newer deliveries with more comfortable seating. They also have large panormaic windows which makes them ideal for sightseeing! Current Blue Arrow services are shown in the table at the top right of this page.
