1. Direct bus transfer from Bucharest Otopeni Airport to Mamaia by Wave Travel  

  • Jump on a bus and go straight to Mamaia with one 15 minute stop on the road. Book NOW here www.wave-travel.com/transfers

  • We offer many options:

    Shared Shuttle Transfer
    This travel option is a minibus with 7-20 or 49 seats bus that leaves Otopeni Airport approximately every 1.5 hours. The transfer time is usually 3.5 h but it can be maximum 4.15, depending on traffic. Once the bus arrives to Mamaia you will be dropped off directly at your accommodation. When your time at the festival comes to an end just go to the Summerland Reception, Building #14 to take the return shuttle back to the airport. Simple and smooth!

    Private Car
    This travel option is convenient for those traveling in groups of 3-4. You will have your own private driver and car that will pick you up from the airport or Bucharest and drop you off at your accommodation in Mamaia. Transfer time is between 2.5 - 3 h.

    Private Minivan
    This travel option is convenient for those traveling in groups of maximum 8 people. You will have your own private minivan that will pick you up from the airport or Bucharest and drop you off at your accommodation in Mamaia. Transfer time is between 3 - 3.5h.

2. Train from Bucharest ( Gara de Nord ) to Constanta

  • This is the best transfer option for people looking to spend a few days exploring the magical city of Bucharest. The train takes 2.5 hours from Gara de Nord to Constanta.

  • Taking a train directly after landing at Otopeni Airport can be complicated. The airport express bus leaves every 30 minutes from the airport going to Gara de Nord and can take up to 45 minutes to arrive at the train station. Trains leave from Bucharest to Constanta every 2-3 hours. The train ride will take about 2 and a half hours. Once you arrive in Constanta you will then have to take a bus or a taxi from the train station to Mamaia. As you can see it’s very complicated :)


3.  Rent a car

  • Renting a car is always a good option, but just keep in mind that once you arrive in Mamaia you will not have any need for an automobile. Most of your time will be spent dancing and meeting new friends. Not to mention that after 5 full days of dancing, driving can feel a bit unpleasant, especially on the Romanian roads.


4. Taxi

  • Taxi is a good option for going to Mamaia but only if you know the driver. From our experiences and our customers’ experiences, we do not recommend taking a taxi in Romania. If they see you are a foreigner your chances of getting ripped off just went up.

  • For those staying in Bucharest several days, we recommend you use Uber.
