Romania is a mysterious country known for the forested region of Transylvania, and the jagged Carpathian Mountains. Wander through preserved medieval towns holding fortified churches and castles and discover Bucharest, the country’s energetic capital. Romania is a fantastic experience and is without a doubt one of the more interesting countries in Europe to explore by campervan hire.

Driving Tips and Tricks

● Romanians drive on the right-hand side of the road

● Toll roads are rare, but there are a couple. Ensure you have cash to pay for these

● Gravel roads are common through villages and are often in bad condition

● In the mountains, roads are particularly dangerous when wet or covered with ice

● Expect to encounter horse-drawn carriages. You’ll need to slow down and allow plenty of room

● There is zero tolerance for driving under the influence of alcohol. We recommend not drinking at all if you are the motorhome driver
