Ploiesti to OTP Airport (Early morning Flight)

Hi, any advice you could give to travel from Ploiesti to OTP Airport for my flight at 5.40am. What options do I have as I stay in a apartment in Ploiesti?

Budget: 40 Euro, Traveling alone

I am thinking:

1) Travel to the airport the night before and stay till the counter check-in is open. (Is staying overnight in OTP airport legal?)

2) Travel to Burcharest the night before, stay in a hostel and use the bus to go into OTP airport in the early morning.

3) Any good airport transfer services that is reliable so that I can travel directly from Ploiesti to OTP airport directly? (I assume a no-show from the driver will means I will miss the flight in this case)

I'd head to the airport in the evening and spend the night in it (it's legal and perfectly OK).

There are minibuses from Ploiesti that pass by the airport, for instance at 21.10 (arrives ~22.00) or 22.47 (arr. 23.30). You can also travel by train to Bucharest then catch a bus to the airport.

It's advisable to be at the airport with some time before the flight so the other two options don't make much sense, you'd still have to leave in the middle of the night .

THe bus station is 10 m from Agip, near the bridge, it„s a place for all mini-buses that goes to near cities and you can wait for the one to Ploiesti there, if they have space/empty seats they will most certainly stop to take you. They leave from Gara de Nord each hour .

Taxi is about 130 RON (30 euro). Best solution imho. Just call in the evening to be sure they have available car.
