Brasov to Balea Lake - private transport??
Posted February 25th, 2013 - 6:03 pm by from Hoboken, United States (Permalink)
HI,

I'm hoping someone could help me out here. We have a very short trip to Romania, and want to go to the Ice Hotel.

We figure the only way for us to achieve this is to get a taxi/private transport from Brasov. What we really need is:

Day 1: Pick us up at Brasov to go to Balea Lake , so we can take the cable car.
Day 2: Pick us up from Balea Lake cable car, and then drive us to Brasov so we can see Bran castle.

Please advise if you know any transport agencies that will do this from Brasov, and how much. It is just 2 of us.

I know there are many taxis from Sibiu, but we have no time to go to Sibiu.

Thank you!

Bran Castle is not in Brasov, so you will need someone willing to stop there and wait until you do the visit then drive you to Brasov. And what will that driver do while you are at Balea Lake?

Your best bet is to rent a car. You should be able to get the smallest car available at around 30 EUR / day. That's 30 EUR each (you said you are 2) which is not a lot and you do your own schedule and stop wherever you want. I don't think it's worth to complicate yourself with a taxi.

"rent a car Brasov" on google will give you tons of info on the subject

We looked into renting a car but am not sure how safe it is to drive around. Also, it would be winter and am worried about driving in the snow. I hear that driving is crazy too in the mountains.

What do you think?

Thanks.

Scriprian,

Thank you so much for checking. I did contact some travel agencies in Brasov who is willing to take us, but it is quite expensive so we are thinking on what to do.

But I really appreciate your help =)
