Travel information for Romania
- Romania has a rich history and both cultural and natural diversity. It has dramatic mountains and sandy beaches and the famous Transylvania at its heart. Romania is defined by its agricultural communities throughout the backcountry, and we’ll immerse you in a wealth of tradition and culture.
- Most visits to Romania pass without trouble, but if you do need assistance from the authorities, call 112.
- The Foreign & Commonwealth Office says that you should maintain the same level of personal security as you would in the UK as in the larger towns and cities (and at the airport) you may be targeted by pickpockets and purse snatchers.
- Only change money in authorised shops and kiosks, and the Romanian authorities treat all crimes by foreign nationals very, very seriously.
- Tolerance to the LGBT community is less than in the UK but there are a few relaxed bars and clubs in the cities and Bucharest does hold a gay pride parade each year.
- You shouldn’t photograph anything sensitive at the airport although a few selfies should be ok. If you’re unsure, ask an official before you take any pictures.
- Make sure your passport is valid for the duration of your stay and you don’t need a visa to enter the country unless you intend to stay longer than 3 months.
- You should get a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) before travelling and visit your doctor a few weeks before travelling to check on what vaccinations you may need.
- Earthquakes are not uncommon in Romania though they are not normally very large.
- Although we offer an all-inclusive tour, you may want some cash for bars and restaurants. Credit cards are becoming more popular, but cash is always king.
