    During peak hours the centre of the city can get quite congested. It its advised that visitors should try and travel outside of busy hours if possible with their car hire in Bucharest. Many main roads will have between six to ten lanes. Drivers should be very careful on roads in rural areas as they may be in poorer condition than those in main cities.


    It may be difficult to find parking spaces on main roads and it is advised to look for space on smaller streets. Car parks are scattered throughout Bucharest. Some of these lots are free but many of them will charge a fee depending on how long you are parked there. Some hotels will also offer parking so be sure to check with the hotel you are staying with.
