Directions for your Bucharest airport transfer
Bucharest Airport (OTP) is considered the main International airport of Romania with numerous daily flights all across Europe. The shortest route from Bucharest airport to the city centre of Bucharest is 17.7km which should take around 20 minutes in a Bucharest airport taxi. Once your driver exits the airport compound, he will take the Calea Bucureștilor highway and head south towards Bucharest. Once in the inner city area, your driver will continue straight down the E60 until he arrives at the main vertical avenue of the city. From here, he will take the local roads to reach your hotel.
Why choose a Bucharest airport taxi?
Although there are cheaper transfer options from Bucharest airport, taking a taxi is the most convenient and least stressful choice. You won’t need to waste time standing in long queues for train tickets or sit cramped inside a busy bus. You can get your vacation in Bucharest off to a relaxing start with a private, spacious Bucharest airport taxi instead.
Cost of your Bucharest airport transfer
Unfortunately, taking a Bucharest airport taxi can be difficult when it comes to pricing. The taxis are supposed to have the set rate of 0.35€ (1.39 RON) per km, but many local taxi drivers charge over this, especially from the airport. To be sure that you get a fair price, we suggest booking your transfer from Bucharest airport in advance.
With light traffic, it should cost around 15€ for a Bucharest airport taxi to the city centre, both during the day and at night. However, many local drivers will add on surcharges and increased prices per km. There are also additional charges for things like heavy luggage, car type and travelling during the holidays.
