hello i am not sure if i can really help you ...but alot of times when booking a flight is best if you try booking a month or 2 weeks in advance. i live in michigan the best website I found for my mom ....she wanted to go to africa was http://www.vayama.com/ and go from there. other wise and the names part I think you should always wanna use the name that matches all the decuments that your gonna carry. hope that helps

You will have to travel with both your GC and Passport. Your ticket should be in the same name as your passport - others have successfully traveled with passport in maiden name, tickets in married name with a copy of marriage certificate, but it is much less trouble to have passport/ticket-names match. :thumbs:

do you have a passport?

I have a romanian passport but in my maiden name, so I think I'll book my ticket in my maiden name and take with me my passport, U.S. drivers licence, romanian I.D and marriage licence and that should be enough

we don't need any kind of VISA to go to Romania do we?

Yeah you must travel with the green card and your Romanian passport. Booking the ticket in the name on your passport will be the easiest because the airline wouldn't ask for any other additional identity proof so it doesn't matter what it says on your green card....thats just for US immigration when you return.

I usually use kayak.com, sidestep.com and www.vayama.com for tickets to europe. Check all 3 before booking. Also once you see which airlines seem to be offering the best price for the route you want then check the airline site directly, sometimes you can buy more cheaply directly from them than you can from the discount sites. If fares are looking way too expensive to Romania and you have a bit more time you can try to book a ticket from the US into a cheaper (in airfares anyway) European city like London or Madrid and go the rest of the way on a cheap airline like easy jet, ryanair, or wizz air. I've had luck using this method when traveling to Croatia and Hungary during the summer months.

I would recommend booking a ticket into Madrid and using easyjet onward to Bucharest in April. I've done a quick search and seems like it would probably save you a few hundred bucks. PM me if you need further details.
