Driving to Romania

Jump to last reply

We are travelling to Europe (ex Australia) in May and intend driving through parts of Eastern Europe. We had intended to fly to Bucharest from France and pick up a car there but that is impossible - as I have discovered from other readers on this forum. The only option open to us, it appears, is to do the leasing thing - i.e. lease a new car from Renault Eurodrive which we have done before. The insurance covers all countries including Romania. My problem is that we will pick the car up in Milan and we need to make our way to Bucharest.

I was thinking of going Milan to Ljubljana and then from Lubljana to Budapest and from there drive to Cluj or somewhere, then to Brasov, Bucharest and Sibiu and back to Hungary before heading up to Vienna, Prague and so on.

Can anyone advise me the best way to drive ex Milan into Romania? I am not that keen to drive through Bulgaria unless it is a huge time saver.

As for time - we have about 20 days to get from Milan, through Romania, Hungary, Vienna, Prague, Luxembourg and back to Paris. Are we stretching it a bit?

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance
