Frequently Asked Questions

We've got the A's to your Q's

How can I just read your site without seeing any banner advertising?

You can read  banner - free starting with the FAN membership package. After having logged in on your Steady Account on Romania Insider, you will be able to continue on our site without seeing banner ads or video ads.

Can I connect my app on Android or iOS to my membership?

The membership packages purchased via Steady are only valid for desktop and mobile website use - in your browser.

A Note from Corina Chirileasa, the co-founder

About independent journalism  

It's hard to know what media to trust these days and to keep up with the flood of information.

Imagine a world where you can't tell which information is true and which isn't. What article is paid for by a company or which text is dictated by a politically – biased newspaper owner.

In that world, you are no longer free. 

But together, we can prevent that from happening.

Romania Insider is the living proof that journalism can be done ethically. For the last 10 years, we've been a free, independent media voice dedicated to Romania

You, our reader, can now support us in continuing our mission and providing the truth about Romania, to everyone in the world.

Nobody tells our editor what to publish – and you can make sure we're still around to go by this rule.

As a Romania Insider member, you help us continue to deliver the content you love. With your membership, you make sure we focus on content instead of finding ways to fund our media and survive.

As a logged-in member, you can give your attention only to what matters: you won't see any banner ads – thanks to our partnership with trusted German provider Steady, which handles memberships on our site.

You'll be the first to read articles especially written for you, and you will be able to suggest stories for our editors.

Information is power: with the Romania Insider members-only newsletters, you will make informed decisions without relying on translators and without losing a lot of time to scan all the news. Our editors do this for you every day.

With our carefully – curated daily, weekly and monthly newsletters, you can have peace of mind that you won't miss anything important for business or leisure. Leave it to our senior journalists to make the selection.

As a member, you will join our exclusive Facebook group, where you can interact with our team of journalists and editors and start the conversation with the media.

By joining our small-format webinars for free, you can discover insiders and kick off new business relationships.

As an Ultra member, you will be able to offer a free membership pass to a friend: two for the price of one, and you can share all your membership benefits with someone else.

So far, over 400 members joined Romania Insider. You can have a say in Romania Insider's future too!
