The local currency is the Lei which is worth around 5 RON to £1. The RON is not an international currency so cannot be bought outside Romania. You can acquire cash in Romania by exchanging other currencies, ideally Euros. Cash machines are plentiful in towns and cities and dispense local currency.

Taxis are plentiful in Bucharest and considerably cheaper than you would expect in Western European cities. A central city taxi ride is still possible for less than £2.

Hotels can be booked from the UK on the internet. There are first class hotels and lesser establishments. For longer trips it may be worth considering an apartment.
