When using your hire car in Romania, don't forget to drive on the right. There are a number of toll roads in the country, and you'll need a vignette sticker to use them. Check with the company you've chosen for car hire in Romania to see if this is already included in your booking. Otherwise, you'll need to purchase one from a petrol station. Remember, that you cannot have any alcohol in your blood when driving, so avoid drinking altogether when you plan to drive.
You usually have to be at least 21 years old to hire a car in Romania. Certain car categories may be restricted to those over 25, or over 30 years. Additionally, a young driver's surcharge is often added for drivers under 25 years. You can use your UK driving licence, and you'll need to bring this along with your credit card to pick up the vehicle. It's a good idea to bring your passport as well for additional identification.
Petrol prices in Romania are approximately RON 6.80 (around GBP 1.20) a litre and roughly RON 25.30 (about GBP 4.40) a gallon. Petrol stations are usually easy to find, even in remote areas. However, if you're taking a long road trip, it's still best to check the stations on your route ahead of time and fill up before you need to. Petrol stations are usually self-service, and you'll head inside to pay at the counter.
The speed limit on motorways in Romania is usually 130 km/h (roughly 80 mph). Inside cities and towns, the limit is generally 50 km/h (around 30 mph). Some main roads in cities go up to 60 km/h. On major roads outside built-up areas, the limit is usually 90 km/h (about 55 mph). On E-Roads, you can drive up to 120 km/h. Limits may be different on specific roads or in certain areas, so always keep an eye out for signs.
