Bucharest is a city that is continually re-inventing itself and is a joy for discerning city breakers to explore and discover. Bucharest is nick named the ‘little Paris’ and with its charming old town full of cafes and restaurants and its very own Arc of Triumph you can understand where the nick name came from.

For art and music lovers Bucharest is a real treat. From traditional folk festivals through to opera festivals and even beer festivals there is always something special happening. It is a city that you need to get under the surface of and for those who succeed you will be rewarded with the nicest of surprises.

It is a city full of life and history, hope and sadness. It is a city that has endured and yet still smiles. It is a city of pace, fun times and personality. We recommend you come and see for yourselves!

Our recommended Bucharest city break hotel:

The Athenee Palace Hilton Bucharest is the most prestigious luxury hotel in the city. As well as being beautifully appointed it is also in the heart of the city and is an ideal base to explore Bucharest from. So whether you are a culture vulture, a nature lover or a night owl you are in the right location here.

The Athenee Palace opened its doors for the first time in 1914 and now with 100 years of existence it offers it guests a lovely combination of modern day high quality services combined with a rich and fascinating history.

Indeed the Athenee Palace is arguably Europe’s most notorious den of spies in the years leading up to World War II, and only slightly less so during the Cold War. The English room still exists today where the majority of the spy meetings took place. The Athenee has also attracted its fair share of famous guests over the years too. There is an entire wall of celebrities and dignitaries in their Paris styled cafe to see and be impressed by.

In summary this is a great hotel, with a wonderful character and first class team making sure your stay is delightful.

  • Brochures

    Q: Do you have a brochure?
    A: In line with our green eco-policies we do not produce what would be classed as a traditional paper brochure

  • Flights in general

    Q: Can we book plane tickets through your travel company?
    A: Yes. We are a fully bonded ATOL member. ATOL Protection extends primarily to customers who book and pay in the United Kingdom. 

    Q: Can we book our own flights and then book with your travel company?
    A: Yes. It is common for our customers to book their own flights especially with low cost carriers. We will simply help with the rest. 

  • Holiday information packs

    Q: When can I expect to receive my holiday information pack [example: tickets, hotel vouchers, tour information]?
    A: We send your holiday information packs 10-14 days before departure. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your 1-1 expert travel manager.

    Q: What if I have a problem abroad?
    A: For most holiday bookings, we will provide you with an emergency contact name/number, who will be able to help during difficult situations. This is not available for activity, transfer, flight ‘only’ bookings.

  • Insurance

    Q: Should I take out insurance before travelling?
    A: Yes. It is extremely important that all travelers booked must have travel insurance, whilst travelling with us. Its part of our booking conditions, as we want your safety to come first.

  • Protection & financial security

    Q: What protection can you offer us? How can I check, you’re actually a legally running UK company?
    A: Your holiday time is important, so we know there is lot at stake here!  Rest assured, we are a very real & trust worthy company. and not an internet cowboy. We are: Vamos Travel Ltd – our UK address is: Pure Offices, 54, Plato Close, Leamington Spa, CV34 6WE – England. We abide to UK laws and regulations. Make an appointment and visit us! A UK limited company has to be registered with www.companieshouse.gov.uk A legitimate travel firm should be able to provide you a companies house number. Don’t be afraid to ask for this straight away. Our company No. 4378409. Also, legitimate companies will be registered with the ‘Civil Aviation authority’ a government run scheme. Each company registered – has an ATOL number. This number can be checked on the website www.atol.org.uk – Vamos Travel Ltd – has the ATOL number 5927 

    Q: Which is better ATOL or ABTA?
    A: Both are industry recognized, and both enable you the consumer to do your research into a company’s background. Always book a holiday with a company that legitimately and directly holds one of these licenses. Remember some agents might claim they are ATOL or ABTA, simply by placing a logo on their documents! This is largely a scam, and one we keep seeing on pop up websites! Always ask for the companies official number, and check it on the UK government website – www.atol.org.uk 

    Q: Tell me more about the different forms of protection against insolvency?
    A: This is a slightly more complicated question, and it doesn’t help when one company claims that ABTA is better than ATOL (& visa versa). What ‘you’ the consumer must understand is that the organiser of a package holiday must, at all times, be able to show sufficient evidence of security for pre-payments and for repatriation in the event of insolvency. There are 4 methods currently recognized within the industry: Trust accounts, ATOL, ABTA & specialist insurances. 

    Q: How else do we know our booking will be secure, when we are abroad?
    A: Vamos Travel ltd is not only ATOL protected but we pay our suppliers & local staff before you travel. This means all your services are paid in full before you arrive in the country! Also, our company holds no bank loans or takes credit! So unlike the big travel companies [with their fancy TV adverts] going bankrupt, and giving the industry a bad name – we deliver on our payment promises! You are in safe hands.

  • Reviews

    Q: Do customers leave feedback or reviews of your holidays?
    A: Yes, we take great pride in receiving them. Each holiday program has there own review tab, so new customers can hear the voices of our past & repeat clients. Please see the ‘review’ tab button on this page. On the home page of our website, you can also locate the general review centre button. But do note, that these reviews are not specifically related to the holiday you are currently reading/reviewing. Enjoy the reading, as there are many top tips & insider advice!

    Q: How do I leave feedback?
    A: Some holidays we ask our clients to complete a feedback form 

    Q: Can I send feedback directly to a general manager / company director?
    A: All feedback is received by our product managers, not your 1-1 travel consultants. The feedback forms are then used for our staff’s monthly evaluations. The most praised staff during that month receives various rewards.
