    How to get to and from Bucharest Airport

    The best way to get to and from the airport is when you rent a car at Bucharest Airport. The drive will get you to the city centre in roughly 25 minutes, depending on traffic by driving along the DN1/E60. For in-depth information on driving in Romania, please refer to our driving information guide.

    In case you are not picking up your car hire directly at the Airport, but from a downtown location instead, there are a number of means of transportation that will take you to the centre of the city. Buses are available from the airport with the 780 Express line connecting to the Gara de Nord train station (Main station), and the 783 Express connecting to Bucharest centre with a 24-hour service and departures every 20-40 minutes. Trains are also available and run throughout the day with departures every 40 minutes. In a 20-minute trip, you will reach Bucharest North Station. Here you can get connection to regional, national and long-distance trains. Taxis are available at the arrivals area and, there are touchscreen terminals for taxi requests if you prefer to ride with a certain company. Don't forget the printed ticket to show your driver.

    Parking Tips

    Parking your car rental at Bucharest Airport is easier than in the centre. There are six parking areas at the airport, with AB4 parking being reserved for minibuses and minibuses with trailer. P1 is located closest to Departures, while P2 is closes to Arrivals. P3-5 is the long term parking with a maximum of 30-day parking.

    It can be difficult to find street parking during peak hours in the centre of Bucharest. It is advised to look for parking in back streets or car parks. Some hotels will also offer their guests a parking space. Travelling during non-peak hours is advised as the roads will be less congested.
