How Do The Airport Transfers Work?

What happens once I've booked my airport transfer?

  • Once you've used our fast and secure booking engine to organise your Bucharest airport transfers, you can sit back and relax in the knowledge that the hard work has been done for you. You will receive an email confirmation, which you may need when you meet your transfer at the airport, so be sure to put it somewhere safe.
  • When you arrive in Bucharest, wrestle your cases off of the baggage carousel and make your way to the arrivals hall.
  • Keep an eye out for a person with your name on a big shiny board (just like in the movies). They will either be in the arrivals hall or at the designated desk, there will be full instructions will be on your confirmation.
  • In fact, your confirmation has got all the details on it, so if in doubt, check it out.

Uh oh! My flight is delayed!

Delays are one of the lesser joys of travelling but don't worry, we have a cunning plan just in case your plane gets held up en route. There is a contact number on your confirmation, if you give that number a call, you'll get through to your provider. They will then be able to let your driver know what's going on and ensure that you get sorted.

When it's time to come home

All good things must come to an end and when it's time to say la revedere to Riga, your return to the airport is taken care of.

  • Your email confirmation gives the time of your return transfer, which will pick you up outside of your accommodation.
  • It's recommended that you're ready to go at least 15 minutes before your pick-up time, to ensure everything runs smoothly.

A Mini Guide To Bucharest

Bucharest was once known as the "Paris of the East". Although some of the pre-World War II opulence that earned the city this name has faded, the Romanian capital is still a charming destination, with an intriguing hotchpotch of architecture styles, warm and welcoming locals and a host of beautiful day trips within easy reach of the city.

Wandering through Bucharest is like taking a trip through history, where glorious art-deco villas stand side-by-side with dour communist-era high rises. Every architectural style and influence is apparent here and the most impressive is the Romanian Parliament Building. To say that it is enormous is to understate the scale of it, it is the heaviest building in the world and a colossal landmark reminiscent of The Pentagon. If you want to escape to something a bit greener, you're in luck, Bucharest has many lush green parks and gardens, perfect for lazy afternoons basking in the sunshine.

A Day Out Fit For A King

Romania has far more than its fair share of castles. The most famous amongst them is Bran's Castle, the inspiration for Bram Stoker's 'Dracula'. Or if you prefer your castles with slightly fewer vampires, Pele's Castle near Sinaia is an unfathomably gorgeous neo-Renaissance gem in the Romanian countryside. Both are within easy reach of Bucharest on a day trip.

A choice of transfers

Holiday Extras offers a range of private transfers from Bucharest Airport. Each option drops you off right at the door of your accommodation, so there's no need to be dragging your case along charming cobbled streets searching for your hotel. Speaking of which, there's room for one suitcase per person, so plenty of space for all of your things.

Not all transfers are created equal, so we have trawled through providers to find you the best range of options at the best prices.

  • If you're going solo in Romania, our shared shuttle buses are the cheapest transfer to get you from A to B with a no-frills, no-fuss service. You'll be sharing the ride with fellow travellers, so will take the scenic route to your accommodation. This is a great way to familiarise yourself with the city and even get a look at some of the sights on offer.
  • If you're travelling alone or with a few friends, our private transfer cars are ideal. With space for three people, this is the most cost-effective private transfer option for small groups.
  • Too many people for a car? No worries, our private minibuses are the way to go. It works out at very reasonable per person prices and much easier than trying to organise multiple taxis.
