How to Plan a Winter Holiday from Scratch

Most people plan their winter holidays during Christmas time and New Year’s, which can be quite a hectic period for some.

If you want to plan a winter holiday the right way, then we recommend considering the beginning of the year. Not only the prices of travel and accommodation will be lower, but you may also find more activities and things to do.

Whether you’re a winter sports fan, want to visit medieval cities, or relax surrounded by fairy tale landscapes, you can fulfill any desire in Romania.

Here’s what you need to know in order to plan a memorable getaway this winter.

Plane Tickets

First things first: once you’ve decided on your winter destination (in this case, Romania), you need to make sure you purchase the plane tickets.

There are plenty of airplane companies that fly directly to Romania from major cities in Europe, so you’ll definitely find a route that suits your needs.

If you want to save money when booking the plane tickets, then you can be flexible when it comes to the departure and return dates. Usually, the tickets are more expensive during the weekends.

To find the best deals, you can use websites such as Skyscanner, Cheapflights, or Momondo.

Once you have purchased the tickets, you can move on to the next steps.

Travel Insurance

You can’t plan a winter holiday without getting travel insurance. Here are a few reasons why you need it:

  • Weather conditions can be unpredictable during the colder months, which can lead to flights being delayed or canceled. There are certain travel insurance packages that will reimburse an amount of money if something happens to your flight or if your luggage is lost.
  • There are higher chances of getting sick when you travel, especially in the wintertime, so the travel insurance will be extremely helpful at covering any hospitalization costs if needed.
  • If you plan on engaging in winter sports activities, then you absolutely need travel insurance which will cover the costs resulted in case of an injury.

Accommodation & Itinerary

When looking for accommodation, you should also plan the itinerary and map out what cities and attractions you want to visit.

For example, you can arrive in a big city such as Bucharest or Cluj-Napoca and then decide to visit other regions like Maramures, Transylvania or Bukovina, where you can enjoy winter at its fullest.

The best way to get around and explore as much as possible is to book guided tours. Depending on how many attractions you want to visit, they can last from one day to several days.

When it comes to accommodation, you have plenty of options to choose from – Airbnb, hostels, hotels, or cottages.


Last but not least on the list is packing. A few days prior to your departure, check to see what the weather in Romania is going to be like during your trip and especially in the regions you’ll be visiting.

Depending on how cold or snowy it will be, you’ll know exactly what type of clothes to pack and how many layers you are going to need.
