Bucharest -> Chisinau Options

6 of us booked Edinburgh -> Bucharest (Ryaniar) on the 10th Nov, flying home from Bucharest -> Edinburgh on the 14th (Wizz-air). The intention was to get the famous night train from Bucharest to Chisinau however, this does not seem to be running currently due to Moldovan Rail going bankrupt. The alternatives currently are bus, private hire or internal flights. 

Is anybody in the same predicament? And if there is a lot who chose this route, would anyone be interested in a coach hire option to make the journey a bit more fun? 😂

We're in the same position. 8 of us fly into Bucharest on the 8th and had planned to get the train on the 10th. 

Update seems positive but would still be keen to start looking at alternatives. What's your plan at the minute?

Cheers,

Robbie

Current plan is to get the bus alternative on the 10th as its only £10 and then if the train runs I will buy a ticket for that also. 9hrs instead of 13/14hrs on the train but buses aren't the most enjoyable form of travel haha.

 

What about you?

it was only through reading your message that found out the train's potentially not running so I've not looked at alternatives tbh. 

Bus sounds less glamorous that £8 bottles of champagne on the train but I'll take it if it gets us there.

That Bucharest to Chisinau aye?

Aye it’s Bucharest to Chisinau for about £11 I think. We will probably get nighttime bus on 10th as well then bus back on 13th Night to catch out lunchtime flight from Bucharest. Feel free to drop me a message if you’re needing a hand

Robbie,

 

That is us booked up now. 

10th Nov 23:00 Bus -> Chisinau with the intention of buying a train ticket if it comes online.

13th November Chisinau -> Iasi Bus (3hrs), explore and then get an early flight to Bucharest on 14th (55mins) to get flight back to Edinburgh with Wizzair. All this for £42 so happy with that and splits up the travel a bit!

Jeez that's cheap, good effort! We're thinking bus there and back but will have a look at flight from lasi.

How did you book the bus? Will need to meet for a pint to say thanks for your help!
