Voice of Travelers to Romania

Good Service on Flight to Romania

I took a TAROM flight from Munich to Bucharest. It was very easy to purchase the air ticket online. The flight departed right on time. While it was a short flight time, sandwiches and a small cake were served. I was very impressed by the legroom, the onboard amenities and onboard WiFi provided even for economy class customers. The cabin crews were very helpful and mindful. Since I had a small child with me, they took extra care to ensure that I was not having any problems during the flight to Romania. It was a great experience for both my daughter and me.

Amazing Museum in Bucharest

I enjoyed the journey to Romania. My flight was from Madrid, and the ticket was from Blue Air. Among many places I visited, my favorite is Village Museum located in Bucharest. I was able to see and experience Romanian traditions and houses with detailed decorations. It was an amazing village right at the heart of Bucharest. I was also happy to see lots of cheap souvenirs. One tip for people considering visiting Romania is to buy air tickets at least 2 months in advance to get the best rate.

Free Meals and Drinks

I bought an air ticket from Athens to Bucharest on TAROM to meet one of my colleagues there. The flight was almost full but it did manage to depart on time. WiFi was provided on the flight, and meals and drinks including alcohols were free of charge. I was very surprised and satisfied because of that. I will definitely buy a TAROM air ticket in the future too.
