Airport Car Rental

Get your rental car at Bucharest Airport! Then drive to the city center so you can see the famous Parliament Palace, the Curtea Veche church and the Patriarchal Cathedral, and the Athenaeum building. Park your rental outside Lipscani, the old city center, so you can take a stroll through its historic streets. Visit the National Museum of Contemporary Art, the Museum of the Romanian Peasant, or the Old Court Museum where you’ll learn about the Wallachian princes that used to rule Romania.

Bucharest is a lively city with lots to do, and there are green areas where you can unwind, too. Drive to beautiful parks like Herăstrău or the city’s botanical gardens to take a wonderfully long walk. At an authentic Romanian restaurant, try local foods like mamaliga, friptura steak, and ciorba taraneasca soup.

Bucharest’s a great destination, but the rest of Romania has even more to offer. With a longer term car rental you can visit the Transylvanian Mountains, the Black Sea coast, or even neighboring Bulgaria, Serbia, or Hungary. Picking up your rental car at Bucharest Airport and dropping it off at a different location is easy. Start planning your adventure today!.

Bucharest Airport is also called Henri Coandă International Airport and Aeroportul Internațional Henri Coandă București.
