For example, taking a standard 4-seater Bucharest Airport taxi 18 km into the city centre of Bucharest will cost around €15 (RON 75). Another popular destination is Brasov, which is located around a 2 hour and 15-minute drive from Bucharest Airport, costing approximately €90 (RON 450) with a local taxi.

Getting from Bucharest Airport to your hotel

Although a budget-friendly transfer option, taking the bus from Bucharest Airport to the city centre isn’t very comfortable or safe. You will have a long wait between buses, causing them to be very crowded which can lead to potential pickpocketing. Once you reach the busy city centre with your luggage, you will then need to find alternate transport or walk to your hotel, which is stressful and inconvenient. 

However, there is a direct transfer option from the very door of the airport to the door of your hotel – a Bucharest Airport taxi. Taking a private Bucharest Airport taxi to your hotel will give you the peace of mind that all your loved ones and personal belongings are safe during the entire journey.
