Advice for Americans traveling abroad

According with U.S. government the following advice are to be followed:

Before you go

  • Confirm your passport is valid for 6 months from when you think your trip will end. Don’t get stranded.
  • Get comprehensive travel insurance to cover you and your gear. Get insurance that’s right for you and covers your activities in the places you’ll go. Remember, regardless of how healthy and fit you are, if you can’t afford travel insurance, you can’t afford to travel.
  • Consider your physical and mental health. Get advice from your doctor if you’re unsure.
  • See your doctor or travel clinic 8 weeks before you go for a basic health check
  • Check if your medication is legal and available in the places you’re going. Take enough of your prescribed medicines to last the whole trip. Carry copies of your prescription and a letter from your doctor.
  • Tell your bank you’re travelling and check if your cards will work. Have several payment options.
  • If you’ll drive overseas check out the local traffic laws and practices. You’re likely to need an International Driving Permit (IDP) as well as your US driver’s license.
  • Share your itinerary with friends or family members. Give them copies of your passport

Travel insurance

Holidays don’t always go as planned. If you’re going overseas, travel insurance is as important as a passport. Without it, you or your family could suffer financially if things go wrong. No matter who you are, where you’re going and what you’re doing, get insurance.

Travel insurance is especially important if you need medical assistance. Healthcare overseas can be very expensive. Most countries won’t give you free care, or subsidies the cost of your care. You, or your insurer, must usually pay full price.

Travel Advice for Americans visiting Romania

Safety

Keep your personal belongings close. Lock hotel and train compartment doors from the inside.

Drink spiking is an issue, especially in Bucharest’s Old Town. Don’t accept food, drinks, gum or cigarettes from people you’ve just met.

Dating and marriage scams occur.

Only use ATM's in banks, shops and shopping centers, especially at night. Always keep your credit card in sight. Be wary of people you’ve met online.

Local laws

Penalties for drug offences are severe. They can include jail sentences of up to 20 years.

By law, you must always carry photo ID. Keep your passport in a safe place. Carry a photocopy.

It’s illegal to take photos of airports, military sites or other secure locations.

It’s illegal to engage in sex work or have sexual relations with a person under 18.

Same-sex relationships are legal in Romania, but not widely accepted.

Local contacts:

You can get full consular help from the U.S. Embassy in Bucharest.

Review of: 7 Day Best of Transylvania Motorcycle Tour from Cluj
Came to Romania to ride the Transfagarasan because the Top Gear guy said it was the best road. Along the way discovered Transylvania to be a beautiful place to visit, it’s like France but a third of the price. Both Alex and Claudia are excellent host and doubled as tour guide. And the riding was fun and challenging. Beside riding the amazing Transfagarasan and Transalpina, we visited lots of castles built by German including the infamous Dracula castle. Crossed a fast-flowing river on a barge attached to a cable. Rode some dirt road on a R1200GS to our hotel. This bike tour exceeded my expectation.",

  1. :

    Transfagarasan and Transalpina – 500kms in 3 days
    I had an incredible time running a 650GS through these two amazing roads. Thanks to Adventure Motorcycle Tours!! Claudia and team were very professional. They gave me great attention, a good bike for a fair price, and a lot of flexibility with pick up and return places. I really appreciated their services and I recommend to everyone. With regards to the roads, there are no words to describe the beauty of those landscapes and the feeling on each and every turn. You have to go and do it. I will do it again, for sure.

  2. :

    If you only have 3 days to spend you choose the best. Fantastic motorcycle roads and great mountain views all in this short trip. Transylvania is amazing.

  3. :

    My wife and I spent a fabulous week-end in Transylvania on a BMW motorbike riding some incredible roads. Romania is fantastic and the people we met here were helpful and friendly. We had an amazing time. Thanks.
