Important information about Budapest car hire

A trip to the culturally rich city of Budapest wouldn’t be complete without visiting famous attractions like Buda Castle or the Hungarian Parliament Building. Highways 2 and 4 are important as they connect many of the town’s main neighbourhoods, including central. As the city is known for being quite busy and popular amongst tourists, finding parking in Budapest can be a challenge. You normally won’t be able to find free street parking, but there is usually an ample amount of metered spaces and car parks to choose from for rental cars in Budapest. Renting a car in this city is an easy task, as there are more than 50 car hire locations in Budapest.

There are many paid garages and metered spaces for you to choose from for parking in Budapest. Budapest is a bustling city with several different traffic hotspots, including on Highways 1, 2, 4, and 7. Avoid driving Budapest car rentals on these roads during the early morning and evening, as this is when they tend to be busiest. In this area, a cheap car rental in Budapest can be an easy and affordable way to explore some of the top sights. Having access to a car will make it convenient for driving to places that are more removed from the city centre, like Memento Park and the Buda Hills. While the city’s central is known for being quite walkable, hired cars in Budapest come in handy for travelling to other neighbourhoods or towns.

To drive as safely as possible in Budapest, keep a few of the area’s local driving regulations in mind. For example, children that are less than three years old must always be in a proper child’s seat. Don’t drink and drive, as having a blood alcohol content higher than 0 can result in you receiving a DUI. In Hungary, drivers are not allowed to use mobile phones, unless it is a hands-free system. When you are approaching an intersection, always make sure to yield for cars that are on your right-hand side. If you ever are confused about local traffic law, it’s always best to contact the Hungary department of motor vehicles to receive clarification.

To rent any type of vehicle in Budapest, whether it’s an electric car rental or a cheap car rental, you will be required to present the car rental company with a valid driving license. If you do not have a Hungarian driving license, you can use an international license. Licenses from your home country can be used as well, but make sure that they are in a Latin-based alphabet or that you have an official translation of the document. You will most likely need to provide the car company with a copy of your passport.
