Why you should drive a car in Timisoara


Are you in Timisoara either for holiday or for business and considering renting car? Not sure how expensive the taxis will be and how you can reach the various places? We can gladly tell you about public transportation and taxis in Timisoara. Supposed you arrive at the airport and want to get into the city center. It will not be easy to find the one bus that goes in the center of Timisoara. In addition, the bus has a very infrequent schedule and is not particularly reliable. Another option would be to take a taxi. From the airport to the city of Timisoara it costs about 30 €. If you hire a car from Maki Car Rental, you can pick it up right at the airport. Our car prices are as low as 30 € per day.


The streets of Timisoara are very well marked, so that you will have no problems with your rental car, to find the various places and attractions. Only a few years ago, a shopping center called Julius Mall was built in Timisoara, which introduces some variation to everyday business life with its many modern shops and cafes. The marketplace in Timisoara is surrounded by historic buildings which turn the entire place into a beautiful theater setting. From here, you can make a side trip to the zoo or the botanical garden. Also the area around Timisoara can be well-explored with your rental car. Some recreation areas are close to the town. Especially on the weekend the locals come here for swimming, grilling and enjoying the sun. Recas is also a popular destination, famous for its excellent wine. Given that there are many private taxi drivers in Timisoara, you cannot be sure that they turn on their taximeters or that those will work correctly. It is not uncommon that they will charge immense sums if you are not careful. If you want to move independently around Timisoara and if you prefer to save money to spend for souvenirs, we recommend you hire one of our cars.

Frequently Asked Questions

All cars under Maki Car Rental have full comprehensive insurance coverage (CDW), which includes theft protection (TP). The insurance covers all cases except accidents caused from driving under the influence, violation of the rental terms or culpable negligence. Damages on the bottom of the vehicle, loss or damage of the car keys as well as personal belongings are not covered.

Just tell us the time and the pick-up/drop-off locations and a driver will wait for you there. For some areas the delivery is already included in the price and unfortunately for more remote areas we have to charge a little extra.

If there is a deposit to be paid for the car of your choice, you will be notified about this during the booking process. Typically, the deposit is the same amount as the deductible. If you choose an insurance option without deductible, you typically still have to pay a (small) deposit. This is to account for e.g. damages not included in the insurance and refueling. You can pay the deposit when you pick up the car either in cash (in the currency shown or any other supported currency; other currencies upon request) or by credit card. However, please make sure that the full amount is available on your card and that the owner of the card is present at the time of pick-up. If the car is brought back in the same condition as when you picked it up, you will receive the full amount back. In Romania, the deposit is at least €150 (~ $163).

Tourists are allowed to use their existing drivers licence in Romania (non-EU citizens can only drive a vehicle for a maximum of 90 days). It must be possible to read your licence without special language skills. When in doubt, an EU or international drivers licence is recommended.
