I am traveling to Bucharest Romania for a 2-week vacation. I'm wondering if health insurance is a good idea

  • What country are you coming from? – Zach Lipton Dec 15 '18 at 22:27
  • Welcome, James. You've actually asked two questions: how to get insurance, and whether it's a good idea. For the first one, responding to Zach Lipton would help, as would telling the results of your own research. The second asks for opinions, which is not the format of this site. – Giorgio Dec 16 '18 at 1:53
  • Unless you are very rich, having a good health insurance is always good. When traveling, adding a travel insurance is good, as you will be covered against costs which come from being out of your country. – Willeke Dec 16 '18 at 10:32

Usually it is a good idea to have health insurance all the time when you travel abroad, but it's not mandatory to enter Romania.

  • Hey, do you have a source for this? – Mark Mayo Dec 16 '18 at 5:25
  • @Marm Mayo, I'm romanian. And I know this is not mandatory. – andreihondrari Dec 16 '18 at 8:43
  • Why is this answer downvoted? Maybe someone should give an explanation or try asking before downvoting.... – andreihondrari Dec 16 '18 at 8:44
  • "Mark". I didn't downvote, but it could be for the same reason I asked for a source. You didn't mention in your answer how you knew that. Nobody else knows you're Romanian, and we like to have sources on here to help people be more confident in the answer. Perhaps you could edit your answer to include this and any other extra information? – Mark Mayo Dec 16 '18 at 9:21
