Travel from London to Romania by bus

Long-distance coaches continue to operate between London and Romania despite the Brexit. The pan-European coach network Flixbus operates a daily coach service from London to Bucharest (Bucuresti). The connection stops in several Romanian towns and cities along the way, namely: Arad, Timisoara, Lipova, Lugoj, Dava, Orastie, Sebes, Sibiu, Fagaras, Brasov and Ploiesti, but this route allows access to most Romanian cities and towns. The coach from London to Bucharest also stops in Ghent, Brussels, Liege in Belgium and in Aachen in Germany. Along the way you'll see amazing landscapes in France, Belgium, Germany, Austria and Hungary.
 The coach ride between London and Bucharest is a little over 44 hours according to the timetable. There are daily services towards Romania and three services per week between from Romania and the UK. Flixbus offers a shuttle bus and coach connections from Arad, Brasov, Bucharest, Deva, Ploiesti, Sebes and Sibiu. For exact timetable see Flixbus website

One-way ticket price from London to Bucharest & Romania can be as cheap as £75. You can save money if you book return ticket. There are also discounts for students, seniors, and children. The price depends on the distance of the Romanian town or city to which you are planning a journey. This promo fare is available for a single trip or for a round-trip. Details regarding coach fares and timetable can change over time. Flixbus’ booking system is generally a lot easier to use and may include searches for alternative indirect or seasonal buses. Flixbus also sells cross border journeys and tickets for many other European countries. Print at home tickets is generally the best option, collecting tickets at the station is time consuming.

Discover Romania and its cieties e.g. Bucharest

Why should you visit Romania? The answer is easy; because it's one of the most beautiful countries in south-eastern Europe. If you decide for the trip to Romania, I recommend the following places:

  • Sighisoara - Castle Hill - UNESCO World Heritage Site.
  • The Bran Castle is known as the home of Dracula.
  • Brasov - an interesting old town and nice pubs.
  • Bucharest - Romania's capital.
  • Slava Rusa, Slava Cercheza - places where the Old Believers live. In Slava Rusa is the world's only female monastery of the Old Believers.
  • Barsana, Bogdan Voda, Borsa - villages located along the Iza Valley, in every town you can visit the wooden churches inscribed on the UNESCO list, or see people dressed in traditional costumes. It is also worth visiting - hanging wooden bridges.

The journey from London to Romania by Flixbus

Transport from London to Bucharest & Romania is carried out with traditional Flixbus’ vehicles. All Flixbus’ coaches have on-board toilet and washroom facilities, reclining seats and air-conditioning as standard. Seven times a week Flixbus provides coach services from London to Romania (various locations), a half amount (3) of services provides from Romania to the UK. The route to and from Romania no longer require connecting in Cologne, since May 2015 the service has changed and now it is a direct link on certain days (check timetable). Travel on this route takes between 32 to 44 hours. Sometimes the coach that picks you up from your departure point has only the final destination displayed on the front windscreen. This is because the majority of Flixbus routes include multiple stops and it would be impractical to display every stop on the front windscreen. Also, you may have booked a journey which requires a change of coach. In both examples, please ask the driver to confirm that his/her coach is going to the destination stated on your ticket. Flixbus put the safety and comfort of passengers first, so the vehicles are equipped with a large number of safeguards. The operators are using modern vehicles with large panoramic windows and increased legroom. Flixbus coach services to Romania depart from Victoria Coach Station in London which is located close to Victoria Underground and bus stations. Flixbus coaches arrive and derpart mostly at the Romanian main bus stations. Buy a ticket online now

The carrier provides service to any person who has purchased a ticket. Number of tickets for the designated route is limited to the number of seats. Having a valid ticket guarantees you use of the service (seat on the coach), however it does not reserve any particular place.
Single and return tickets (with the indicated date and time) are for a specific journey, you cannot miss the departure, because you will lose the ticket.
Best to buy tickets well in advance. Flixbus has many discounts for those who decide to purchase tickets in advance. Constant, although a slight discount is provided for youth, elderly and disabled people. Up to 50% discount is provided for children. Unless you get a good promotional fare, return fares are much cheaper than two single fares each way.

Check-In at London Victoria Coach Station

Check in commences one hour before departure and closes 15 minutes before to enable all customers to board and to ensure a prompt departure. You should have your passports and other travel documents ready for inspection at check-in. A boarding card for each customer and luggage labels will be issued and customers will be advised from which gate their coach will leave. Check in time at other UK departure points is 30 minutes before departure. If the office for check-in is already closed, check-in takes place directly on the coach. 
Buy a ticket online now

Check-in in Romania

You must check-in no later than 30 minutes before the departure time stated on your ticket. Check-in closes 15 minutes before departure. If there’s no office for check-in, then check-in takes place directly on the coach. Services returning to London arrive in Victoria Coach Station’s Arrivals terminal, customers making onward coach connections will need to cross the street to the Departures terminal

Sea crossings

This route involves a sea crossing which, depending on which service you are on, will either by Eurotunnel or by ferry (check timetables for specific information). On arrival at the ferry port or Eurotunnel terminal customers will be required to disembark from the coach and pass through both UK and destination country Border Control offices and show their Passports. Normally customers are not required to be accompanied by their luggage, however occasionally Border Control officials do require customers to take their own luggage with them.

Refreshment stops

Refreshment stops are taken periodically throughout the journey providing the opportunity for refreshment and shipping services used by Flixbus provide a range of shops, restaurants and other facilities.

Carriage of luggage

All Flixbus customers must label their luggage which will be loaded into the hold of the coach and will normally remain there until arrival at the destination or interchange point. The Coach driver will load and unload customers’ luggage but customers are responsible for seeing their own luggage onto and off the coach on which they are travelling. Each customer has a free luggage allowance of one medium sized suitcase, weighing no more than 25 kilograms each and 1 piece of hand luggage, which must be located on the shelf above your head or under the passenger seat.

Travel insurance

The best way to protect against unexpected accidents is to buy travel insurance. In my opinion, so that the journey is stress-free, you should never travel without travel insurance. You can insure only for travel, it’s possible directly on the Flixbus website, during ticket purchase. You can also insure individually with another insurer. This will be the insurance that will apply during the journey and while in a foreign country. The insurance should cover: loss of cash and goods, cancellation of travel and the main treatment abroad. If you travel several times a year and want to save money, you may want to buy an annual insurance policy. Click here to buy insurance.
