Further information to help with your car rental from Bucharest Otopeni Airport

After you’ve safely landed in Bucharest and collected your hire car from Green Motion Bucharest Airport, we know that you will be eager to get your car on the road and discover the beautiful country of Romania.

If you are unfamiliar with driving in the Romania, it is important to remember that you must drive on the right hand side of the road. We also recommend that you consider hiring a GPS (SatNav) to ensure that you arrive safely and promptly at your destination.

Enjoy your car hire in Bucharest

If this is your first time driving a car in Romania, our best advice is to stay calm and take your time. As already mentioned, remember to drive on the right and we’d also recommend for your own assurance to consider hiring a GPS to ensure you can manoeuvre around Romania with ease (ask at the rental counter for details).

While driving it is important that you overtake other vehicles on the left however you must always overtake trams on the right. Moving trams may be overtaken on the left only if you are driving on a one-way street or if there isn't enough room to overtake on the right. 

Also it is important to note the priority is given to vehicles on the right of you, however there are exceptions in roundabouts where vehicles which are already in the roundabout automatically have priority. Obviously, priority must also be given to fire engines, ambulances, police cars and trams. 

The speed limit on motorways is 130 km/h, 100km/h on dual carriageways and 50 km/h in built-up and residential areas unless signs state otherwise. For your own safely, you must adhere to the local speed and traffic restrictions. 

Should you require any assistance while in Romania, emergency services can be contacted by calling 112 for police, firefighters and medical services.

Can I make amendments to my booking?

Yes, this is possible. If you booked through our website please contact our reservations team on however there is no guarantee that we will be able to amend your booking but we will try our best to help.

Can I check Green Motion’s car hire rates without placing a booking?

Yes, you can enter your booking requirements (location, dates, vehicle type etc.) on our website here and you will be automatically directed to our booking options and rates. However, please be advised that our rates may change.

Can I book additional extras or equipment?

Yes, you can book additional extras or equipment through our online booking process. You can reserve a child seat, baby seat, additional driver and GPS (SatNav). Some additional options can also be booked at the Green Motion Bucharest Airport rental branch. These additional options will be pay on arrival.

​Do I need to leave a deposit when renting my car?

Yes, in all cases the main driver will be required to leave a deposit which will be taken by the method of pre-authorisation from the credit card presented. The level of pre-authorisation taken is dependent on the type of insurance purchased and the agreed excess. Typically the level of pre-authorisation required will mirror the level of agreed excess. In the cases where the hirer has selected a zero excess option, a small deposit / pre-authorisation will be required to cover any traffic violations including parking and speeding offences that may occur while the hire vehicle is in the custody of the hirer.

We would ask you to note that all pre-authorisation’s are released on the completion of the hire following a satisfactory review of the vehicle and its condition noting that any damaged caused to the vehicle while out on hire will be subject to cost with the relevant amount being removed from the pre-authorisation.

Typical deposits / pre-authorisations can range from £150 GBP to £1500 GBP dependent on the car type, age and driving experience of the driver and agreed excess.

Can I reduce my excess?

Green Motion Bucharest Airport offers their rental customers the opportunity to reduce their excess by purchasing one of our excess reduction packages. Each package provides different benefits ranging from reduction in excess to zero excess. Please ask at the rental counter for more information.

Which payment and debit cards does Green Motion accept?

In most cases, each Green Motion location will accept most major credit cards including Visa and MasterCard and in some cases, American Express may be accepted.

In relation to debit cards (Visa), these are typically accepted for the payment of rentals but unfortunately we cannot secure a deposit / pre-authorisation using a debit card and as such require a valid credit card for the pre-authorisation of the deposit. In addition we are unable to accept cash either for the payment of the rental or for the security deposit.

We would ask you to note that in the event that we are unable to guarantee funds relating to the security deposit on your credit card we will be unable to rent a vehicle to you.

​How long do I wait for the release of a deposit / pre-authorisation?

Green Motion Bucharest Airport does not hold the pre-authorisation / deposit in our bank accounts. The pre-authorisation is a block of the agreed amount held against the credit card presented by the issuing bank. As soon as the vehicle has returned and we are happy with the condition of the vehicle, we action a release of the pre-authorisation.

The time taken by the issuing bank to release the pre-authorisation on the credit card varies immensely dependent on the bank and the country of issue. Typically, most pre-authorisations / deposits are released within 5 – 14 days from the return of the rental car.

In the event that you feel a pre-authorisation has not been released with the prescribed time frame it will be necessary for you to make direct contact with the issuing bank as Green Motion Bucharest Airport has no jurisdiction in this matter.

​Is roadside assistance included with my rental car?

In most cases, Green Motion Bucharest Airport offers full roadside assistance and recovery within the cost of renting a vehicle. Further information on roadside assistance is available at the counter prior to renting.

What happens if my flight is delayed?

In the event that your flight is delayed, please endeavour to contact Green Motion Bucharest Airport. In most cases, we monitor inbound flight information and as such we will reserve your car until you arrive for up to 2 hours from the original pick up time. It is important that you make direct contact with the branch if you feel that your delay will exceed 2 hours to avoid us treating the rental as a “no show” and us reselling the rental car.

What happens if I arrive at the rental office outside office hours?

Green Motion Bucharest Airport's opening hours are from 09:00 to 19:00 Monday - Friday and 09:00 - 16:00 Saturday and Sunday. In the event that we receive no notification that your arrival has been delayed there is little we can do to facilitate your rental once the rental office is closed. In the event that we have received contact notifying us of your delay, you will be advised whether or not we can accommodate your late arrival and whether or not it will attract any out of hours or late fees.

Green Motion Car Rental in Romania

People think of Romania as the land of gypsies and Dracula but there is so much more to the country than just that. 

Romania is filled with beautiful medieval cities, wonderful castles and picturesque farmland. 

With several centuries of architecture in Bucharest, there is a really interesting display of the old and new. There are plenty of museums, cemeteries, historical sites, shopping centres and architectural sights to visit, such as the Romanian Patriarchal Cathedral which still has all of its original interior paintings and icons, in addition to some beautiful frescoes.

Also if you are planning to visit the town in June, there is a huge craft fair held every year in Bucharest. People come from all over Romania to sell goods and provide demonstrations. You can see pottery moulding, woodcarving, glass blowing, rug and textile weaving, embroidery and even egg painting.
