Local currency:

The National Currency in Romania is the Romanian Leu (RON as abbreviation; Lei is plural). The exchange rate fluctuates according to stock exchange demand / offer cycle.

Generally the exchange rate is between 4.80 – 4.90 RON/ 1 Euro.

In the Airport the Exchange Rate course is generally very unfavourable for travellers! Better solutions are the ATM machines in the Arrivals Hall.

A Taxi ride should not be more than 60-70 Lei. The overwhelming majority of the taxis do not have POS /credit/debit card payment facilities.

Pay attention! In Bucharest 99.99% of the transactions are accepted only in Romanian Lei!

In restaurants / pubs the tips are generally 10-15%. They are not included in the bills – and please do not pay them with credit cards (you can pay bills with cards no problem in most of the pubs, bars and restaurants from the city centre).
