Fly with low-cost airline Wizz Air from Brussels (Charleroi) to Bucharest or vice versa for only 20 EUR for a return ticket!
Low-cost airline Wizz Air has made a lot of cheap tickets available on flights between Brussels Charleroi, Belgium and Bucharest, Romania. Return ticket start at just 20 EUR return if commencing your journey in Belgium or 98 RON (20.5 EUR) if starting your journey in Romania.
Of course, you can also book one-way tickets for half the price. Brussels Charleroi to Bucharest can be bought for just 9.99 EUR, while Bucharest to Brussels Charleroi costs 49 RON (10.25 EUR) for a one-way journey.
Although prices are low throughout the entire winter and spring season, the cheapest tickets seem to available in the months of January, February and March. Spring prices seem to be slightly more expensive at around 30 EUR for a one-way journey on average – still a neat price if you ask me.
Do note that these cheap prices are only available for members of the Wizz Air discount club. If you are not a member, you pay 10 EUR more for a one-way flight or have to add 20 EUR more to the ticket price for a return flight. As is usually the case on low-cost airlines, the basic fare only allows you to take a small bag on board. If you want to take a trolley on board of the plane or want to check luggage, you have to manually add this during the booking process for an extra fee.
To book the tickets, it is best to do so directly with Wizz Air and not through any third-party website.
What is the Wizz Air discount club?
Members of the Wizz Air discount club are entitled to a Guaranteed discount of 10 EUR discount on each (one-way) flight for all Wizz Air flights costing at least 19.99 EUR. The same discount is included for maximum one travel companion. If you purchase group membership, the discount applies for up to five people. Wizz Air club members also profit from a 5 EUR discount on checked baggage purchased online.
As a standard membership costs 39.99 EUR per year, it means that you get the costs out of it if you buy at least two Wizz Air return tickets (or four one-way tickets) each year. A group membership valid for bookings of up to five people costs 79.99 EUR per year. Check this link if you want to read more about the Wizz Air discount club.
Do note that the airport which Wizz Air labels as “Brussels” is not the main city airport of Brussels Zaventem. The airport is actually located in Charleroi and quite bizarrely marketed as “Brussels Charleroi” by the Belgians and low-cost airlines alike. That said, there is a convenient shuttle bus service which takes you directly to Brussels South Railway station in just an hour. Tickets can be booked online at the website of bus operator Flibco or on arrival at the airport.
The same company also offers buses directly from the airport to Ghent, Bruges, Lille, Luxembourg, Liege and Metz.
Alternatively, you can take a local bus to Charleroi’s train station and hop on a direct train from there to Brussels. A combined ticket valid on the local bus and on board the train can be bought online on the website of the Belgian Railways.
The cheap flight price makes for a perfect excuse for Romanians to visit the sights of Belgium or for Belgians to explore the Romanian capital on a weekend trip. From Charleroi, fabulous cities like Brussels, Dinant, Ghent, Bruges and Antwerp are all in easy reach. Alternatively, you could head to Lille in France, to Luxembourg or to the Ardennes Forest if you seek some nature and quietness! Needless to say, Belgium is a great destination for food and beer. What’s not to like about some waffles or a plate of moules-frites washed away with a Trappist beer?
Bucharest is also a highly popular city trip destination. Known as the “Little Paris of the East”, Bucharest has an eclectic mix of baroque, Art Nouveau, Art Deco and communist brutalist style buildings. The city has a well-developed cafe and restaurant scene and a vibrant nightlife, making it the ideal destination for a weekend break. If you want to escape the city, you can always head into the Carpathian Mountains with cities like Sinaia or Brașov all being within easy reach of the capital
