Advice for British citizens traveling to Romania

According to British government most visits to Romania are trouble-free.

There were no cases of terrorism attacks in Romania but as the country is part of European Union terrorist attacks in Romania can’t be ruled out.

If you need to contact the emergency services in Romania call 112.

If you’re abroad and you need emergency help from the UK government, contact
the British embassy from Bucharest
24 Jules Michelet,  010463 Bucharest, Romania
General enquiries+40 (21) 201 7200
Consular enquiries+40 (21) 201 7351
British Embasy Bucharest website

 

Urgent assistance
If you’re in Romania and you need urgent help (for example, you’ve been attacked, arrested or someone has died), call +40 (21) 201 7200.
If you’re in the UK and worried about a British national in Romania, call 020 7008 1500.

Get an emergency travel document
You can apply for an emergency travel document if you’re abroad and your passport has been lost or stolen, damaged or expired, and you can’t get a new or replacement passport in time to travel.
You can apply online for an emergency travel document.
If the person needing the emergency travel document is under 16, a parent or guardian should apply on their behalf.

 

Safety and security
Crime
Maintain at least the same level of personal security awareness as in the UK. There is a risk of petty theft in large towns, especially Bucharest. Pickpockets and bag snatchers operate in crowded areas, particularly near exchange shops and hotels, on public transport (especially to the airport), in the main railway stations and inside airport terminals.
Organised attacks by groups can occur. The most common method by distracting victims while several people, often children, attempt to snatch watches and jewellery from pockets or from around the neck and wrist.
Valuables including passports have been stolen from hotel rooms. Use the hotel safe and carry a photocopy of the information pages of your passport as ID.
There have been reports of credit or debit cards being ‘copied’ when used for payment in some bars and restaurants.

 

Road travel
Licences and documents
If driving in Romania, make sure you have with you all documentation, including your full, valid driving licence, proof of insurance/green card (third party or above), proof of ID (passport) and proof of ownership (V5C Certificate).
If the UK leaves the EU with a deal, driving licence rules will stay the same until 31 December 2020.
If there’s no deal, you will need to get an International Driving Permit (IDP) to be able to drive in some European countries as a visitor after the UK has left. Check this guidance page for full information. You should also check guidance on driving in the EU after Brexit for information on other additional documents you may need to carry.
If you’re living in Romania, check the Living in Guide for information on requirements for residents.

Driving regulations
You’ll need to pay a road toll ‘Rovinieta’ to use the national roads. You can buy the vignette (sticker) at border points and at most petrol stations. The minimum cost is 3 euros for 7 days. Failure to display the sticker may lead to a heavy fine. You can find out more about prices by using the website Roviniete.ro.
Observe the speed limit at all times. Make sure your vehicle is roadworthy.
It’s illegal to drive under the influence of alcohol. The drink drive limit is zero.
Carry the following equipment: first aid kit, fire extinguisher, red warning triangles and a fluorescent jacket.
If your vehicle is damaged before you arrive in Romania, ask a Romanian customs officer or police officer to write a report on the damage so that you have no problems when leaving. If any damage occurs inside the country, a report must be obtained at the scene of the accident.

Road safety
In 2018 there were 1,867 road deaths in Romania (source: Department for Transport). This equates to 9.6 road deaths per 100,000 of population, (witch is similar with USA) and compares to the UK average of 2.8 road deaths per 100,000 of population in 2018.
Road conditions are variable and secondary roads can be in a bad state of repair. Driving standards can be poor. Look out for double parked cars, people suddenly braking to avoid a pothole, horse-drawn carts, livestock and stray dogs, particularly in rural areas, running in front of the vehicle. Equip your car for extreme conditions in winter.

Local laws and customs
It is illegal to change money on the streets. You should change money only in recognised exchange shops, banks and hotels.

The Romanian authorities treat all drug-related and sex offences very seriously. The age of consent is 18. If you are convicted, you can expect a prison sentence.

Homosexuality has been legal in Romania since 1996. The country has made significant progress in LGBT rights legislation since 2000 including wide–ranging anti-discriminatory laws, equalising the age of consent and laws against homophobic hate crimes. Bucharest’s annual Pride, usually accompanied by a LGBT film and art festival, has grown in recent years and is gaining the support of more public figures. Since 2017, a Pride event has also been held in the city of Cluj. The country remains generally socially conservative resulting in the majority of LGBT people not being openly gay and there being very few gay bars or clubs in Bucharest or the other main cities. You can find local information on LGBT issues in Romania on the website of ACCEPT. See our information and advice page for the LGBT community before you travel.

Most airports and military bases will have signs prohibiting photography. Ask permission before photographing anything potentially sensitive (eg official buildings, police cars).

Passport validity
Your passport should be valid for the proposed duration of your stay; you do not need any additional period of validity on your passport beyond this.

Visas
If you hold a British Citizen passport, you don’t need a visa to enter Romania.

Parental consent when travelling with minors
Some British nationals travelling with minors who hold Romanian citizenship (irrespective of whether they hold citizenship of other countries) are prevented from leaving the country without notarised parental consent from the minor’s non-travelling parent/s. While enforcement of this may vary at borders, British nationals travelling with minors who hold Romanian citizenship should obtain notarised parental consent before departure from Romania.
A list of the public notaries can be found on the website of the National Union of Public Notaries from Romania.

Healthcare
You should still get a free European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) before leaving the UK.
The EHIC entitles you to state provided medical treatment that may become necessary during your trip. Any treatment provided is on the same terms as Romanian nationals. If you don’t have your EHIC with you or you’ve lost it, you can call the Department of Health Overseas Healthcare Team (+44 191 218 1999) to get a Provisional Replacement Certificate.
The UK government has or is seeking agreements with countries on healthcare arrangements for UK nationals after the UK leaves the EU. The NHS website and this travel advice will be updated with further information on travelling to Romania as the circumstances change.
If you need emergency medical assistance during your trip, dial 112 and ask for an ambulance. If you are referred to a medical facility for treatment you should contact your insurance/medical assistance company immediately.

Money
Romania is increasingly a card economy. While a growing number of businesses do accept credit cards, it may be safer to use cash due to the risk of credit card fraud. There is now a large network of ATMs that accept standard international credit and debit cards. Check with your card provider whether you will be able to use these machines.
US dollars and sterling are not always easy to exchange for local currency, especially outside Bucharest. You may have difficulties using travellers’ cheques. Scottish and Northern Irish bank notes may not be accepted in banks and bureaux de change.

 

Before you travel abroad
• tell family and friends where you’re going and leave them your contact details, insurance policy details and itinerary. Store them securely online
• ensure you have access to funds to cover emergencies and unexpected delays. Take more than one means of payment with you (cash, debit card, credit card)
• find out if travellers cheques are appropriate for your destination and keep a separate record of their numbers
• invest in a good travel guide to help you plan your trip and consider using online travel forums for more detail about your destination
• check with your service provider to make sure your phone works abroad. Consider leaving your phone’s IMEI number with a friend or family member, to help block or locate the phone if there’s a problem
• if you’re going to be driving abroad, make sure your licence is current and valid and be aware of the driving laws in the country you are visiting
• if you’re travelling with children who are unaccompanied by one or both parents, check our guidance on permissions that you might need to get and check the policy of your airline or transport provider

When you’re abroad
• think about what you are doing at all times and trust your instincts. Don’t take risks that you wouldn’t in the UK
• don’t openly display valuables such as mobile phones or digital cameras and consider using a padlock on suitcases or backpacks
• find out how to minimise your risk from terrorism and what to do if there’s a terrorist attack
• find out about local customs and dress, behave accordingly and obey local laws. There may be serious penalties for breaking a law that might seem trivial at home
• be careful when taking photographs, videos or using binoculars. These activities may be misunderstood by local authorities, especially near military installations.
• store useful numbers on your phone such as the local police and the nearest British embassy or consulate
• whether you’re living abroad or visiting, be aware of the risks of carbon monoxide poisoning, just as you would in the UK; the ‘Be Alarmed’ campaign gives practical advice on how to stay safe and lists the symptoms to look out for
• if you intend to take part in any adventure sports or water sports during your trip, only use properly licensed and insured operators. Before taking part, make sure you fully understand the operating instructions and satisfy yourself that adequate safety precautions are in place
• check import regulations for food and plants before you attempt to bring them back to the UK

Itineraries

Day 1

Friday Cluj Napoca – Bistrita – Borgo Pass

Welcome to Transylvania. You will be collected by our English speaking guide from Cluj Napoca Airport. Transfer to Bistrita Citadel. It was here, in the medieval citadel of Bistrita, that the main character of Bram Stokers’ novel, Jonathan Harker enjoyed his last meal before confronting the Count. Visit Jonathan Harker’s saloon in Golden Crown Restaurant and should you dare, enjoy the very meal he had when in Bistrita. You‘ll accommodate in Dracula’s Castle, a hotel built in accordance with Bram Stoker’s imagination on the border between Transylvania, Moldavia and Bucovina, in a breathtaking natural setting: winding roads, thick forests and picturesque Transylvanian villages. We recommend dinner at the castle.

Day 2

Saturday, Borgo Pass – Targu Mures – Sighisoara

Get acquainted with Transylvania’s Szekler and Saxon influences. Morning transfer to the medieval Saxon Citadel of Sighisoara. Stop en-route to Targu Mures, an important Szekler centre in Transylvania, also known as “the city of roses” due to its lovely gardens. One of the main highlights is Teleki Palace, dating back to 1797, a beautiful Baroque style building with Neo Classical influences. We strongly recommend that you try for lunch the delicious Hungarian dishes specific to the area. Founded by Saxons during the 12th century, Sighisoara still stands as one of Europe’s most beautiful and still inhabited fortified cities, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Enjoy the medieval atmosphere at its best, visit the Clock Tower - built in 1360 and standing 60 meters tall on top of the citadel's hill, it hosts a museum and offers a great view over the citadel, The Torture Room and The Medieval Weapon Collection. Sighisoara Medieval Citadel is also the place where Vlad the Impaler, also known as Dracula, was born. The building still stands and it was turned into a cosy restaurant where one can taste the delicious Count’s dishes. Accommodate in a 3* hotel located in the heart of the medieval citadel.

Day 3

Sunday, Sighisoara – Bran – Rasnov – Poiana Brasov

Capture the essence of Transylvania. Drive to the village of Bran to visit Transylvania’s iconic image, Bran Castle. Unrightfully called Dracula’s Castle, Bran owes its fame both to its unique charm and to the myth Bram Stoker created around Dracula. The edifice was once a fort guarding a commercial road, documentary evidence of the castle dates back as far as 1377. In 1920, Queen Maria, the niece of Queen Victoria of Great Britain, turned the castle into a beautiful summer residence. Close to the castle there is a shrine set in the wall of a mountain which once sheltered her heart. Continue your journey with Rasnov Peasant Citadel. Standing on top of a hill and overlooking an incredible Transylvanian landscape, Rasnov is the best preserved peasant fortification in Transylvania and the largest one in Eastern Europe, first documented in 13 century. Transfer next to the medieval Saxon city of Brasov, which has played a vital role in Romania’s history, both old and new. Three quarters of the city is surrounded by mountains, and it is one of the best preserved medieval cities in Europe. The most famous landmark of Brasov is the Black Church, the largest gothic edifice in Southern Europe dating back to 14th century. For lunch we recommend Saxon’s Barrel Restaurant for the delicious Saxon dishes they offer. Accommodate in Poiana Brasov, located at the foot of Postavaru Mountains in a magnificent mountainous natural setting, in an outstanding medieval hotel.

Day 4

Monday, Poiana Brasov – Fagaras – Sibiu – Sibiel

Morning transfer to the imposing city of Sibiu, former Cultural Capital of Europe. Stop en-route to Fagaras. Fagaras Citadel is one of Transylvania’s strongest fortifications, dating back to the 15th century. The fortified town of Sibiu has always been the centre of Romania's German minority since medieval times and it is one of Romania’s most beautiful cities. The city contains one of the largest concentrations of tourist attractions in Romania. Enjoy a city tour including the Evangelic Church, one of Transylvania’s finest examples of Gothic architecture. Built in the 14th century, the Cathedral also served as a burial place for the city’s personalities. Among others, one can visit here the tomb of Mihnea Voda cel Rau (Mihnea the Evil), Vlad the Impaler’s son, who was stabbed in the Cathedral in 1510. You’ll enjoy the evening in the traditional village of Sibiel. Accommodate in welcoming guesthouses and enjoy a traditional home cooked Saxon dinner. Sibiel is home the largest collection of painted glass icons in Europe, the Museum in the village exhibits more than 700 items.

Day 5

Tuesday, Sibiel – Cluj Napoca

Morning transfer to Cluj Napoca. On the way Alba Iulia fortress is not to be missed. Also a visit to Turda Salt Mine would be an excellent option. Cluj was the Hungarian provincial capital and it is one of Transylvania’s most important economic, political and cultural centers. Unirii Square houses beautiful Baroques, Gothic, Renaissance and neo – Classical buildings and is dominated by Saint Michael’s Church. Enjoy a city tour including the imposing Saint Michael’s Cathedral.

  1. :

    A most amazing and unforgettable holiday: one of the very best
    We were trying to piece together how we would get around Romania to all the sights we wanted to see in two weeks, given the complex system of rail schedules, when I stumbled upon a Fodor’s review of Transylvania Live tours on the internet.
    I knew Fodor’s were highly reputable, and somewhat high end, so I figured they were right in their review.
    We are not ‘high end’ travelers, but after making inquiries to the extremely helpful Hertha and her team at Transylvania Live, we booked into what turned out to be one of the very best holidays of our lives.
    We were met by our guide, Claudio, at the hotel in Bucharest we had booked ourselves and taken to the first of the (uniformly excellent) hotels on the tour. He spoke something like five languages and was extremely knowledgeable about everything and everywhere we went and developed a firm friendship with him over our tour, including him in all our non tour activities.
    The tour was an amazing combination of history and Dracula references.
    I don’t want to give much away, but it completely lived up to the marketing on the Transylvania Live website.
    We were toured around in a Mercedes Benz van and Claudio was extremely flexible about spending more time here and there if we really liked a location.
    Aside from the scheduled tour, we met people in the countryside and saw parts of Romania we would never have seen if we tried to do it by ourselves.
    In every location, despite the fact that we were there in a somewhat slow season (Sept 2013), everything was turned on for us – hospitality was faultless.
    The Dracula-inspired entertainments were also not skimped.
    And when we unexpectedly met the Transylvania Live team one day, it was amazing and they were all incredibly friendly.
    This was quite literally a holiday that you would refer to as ‘holiday of a lifetime’ – and we are not ‘tour’ people.

    Romania is a stunning country, made all the more amazing for us by the people at Transylvania Live. We both 100% recommend this tour. Ask for Claudio if you can get him – he is a truly lovely man.

  2. :

    This tour was fantastic and a great way to spend 5 days in Transylvania.
    Our Tour guide and driver Alin was phenomenal!
    Very friendly and helpful.
    Definitely would recommend!
    Thank you for a great experience!

  3. :

    This was an excellent tour of Transylvania.
    The booking process was easy.
    We had the BEST tour guide, Verdes.
    He was so knowledgeable about the places we visited.
    But he also gave us so much background information about Dracula, the vampires, Vlad the Impaler and life under communism.
    I would highly recommend this tour, and try to request Verdes If you can, he was wonderful!
    We were able to pack so much into 5 days.
    Excellent experience

The dress code in Romania is the same as all over Europe (think France, Germany, UK or Italy). Wearing jeans, t-shirts/sweatshirts and athletic shoes is standard casual in Romanian. Plenty of designers’ shops are to be found in major cities: Bucharest, Cluj, Brasov, Sibiu, where people are more pretentious when it comes to their outfits. Dorobanti Boulevard in Bucharest can easily be compared to Champs Elysees in Paris when it comes to “fashionists” (costs are similar too). The malls are well supplied with designers’ clothes and with respect to the prices, a great deal of our clients found the Romanian costs to be more acceptable than the ones in US. With regards to the restaurants’ dress code, something casual is sufficient. You can wear whatever you would wear at home. To satisfy dress codes for churches and monasteries, men and women are requested to cover their arms and legs (no shorts above the knees or sleeveless garments).
