Romania | Bucharest Airport Bus scamCharlie McGrath | 12 Feb 2010
Last May I went walking in Romania, on arrival at Bucharest OTP airport we met a con artist within 5 minutes! Jamie & I arrived late, about 2300, not ideal but last flight of the day out off Heathrow. We had booked rooms in local hotel, 5 mins walk from the terminal building and were about to set off when we were approached by a man offering a bus service. He claimed it was complimentary service from hotel. We were suspicious so checked with the Information Desk, our concern was proved right.
So a useful reminder to be on ones guard at ariport & seek advice at Information Desk, who were very helpful. The rest of our trip to Transylvania was wonderful, stunning countryside and really firendly people.
