Hungary car hire information

If you're planning on picking up a car hire when you get to Hungary, there are a couple of unique traffic laws to keep in mind. Firstly, in Hungary, you're required to drive on the right-hand side of the road and pass on the left. As someone driving a car rental, you're expected to have Third Party insurance, as well as a first-aid kit, a warning triangle, a reflective jacket, and replacement bulbs for your headlights. If you're a foreign driver using car hire, you must keep all of your documentation on you including your original driving licence, an international driving permit if you're not from the EU, your passport, car registration, and insurance documents. Hungary has a strict no-tolerance policy for drinking and driving and the legal blood alcohol level is zero. This is strictly enforced and can lead to heavy fines or imprisonment. It's also illegal to use your mobile phone without a hands-free device. When parking in Hungary, you're permitted to park on the right-hand side of a two-way street unless there is a yellow line on the side of the road.

Although the legal driving age in Hungary is 18 years old, car hire companies require you to be 21 or over and to have held your licence for at least a year. If you're under the age of 25, expect to be charged an additional young drivers surcharge for you and any other drivers under 25. To pick up rental cars in Hungary, you must be in possession of an EU licence that's translated into Hungarian or an International Driving Permit (IDP). Please keep your original licence from your home country with you while driving. You will also need to have a valid credit card with your name on it and sufficient funds to pay for the deposit. Finally, you must produce a valid form of identification such as a passport or national ID document.

Driving conditions in Hungary are significantly better than the majority of European countries, though there are still some road conditions that are less than favourable, so drive with caution. If you're going to rent a car in Hungary and plan on visiting Budapest, keep in mind that it's the most congested city in the country, particularly during rush hour traffic. Luckily, Budapest is one of the few cities in Hungary that has an extensive public transport system and many visitors opt to use it to get around the city. Consider finding a hotel with free parking where you can leave your rental cars while using other transport to explore the city. Parking infringements are heavily enforced in Budapest.

Hungary is a beautiful place to visit and comes with a mix of locations to explore, including towns with historic landmarks and sweeping hills on the outskirts. For your first trip, consider taking a memorable drive through the Balaton-Uplands along the northern coast of Lake Balaton. It's widely considered one of the most beautiful journeys in Hungary filled with rolling hills, flower fields, and a constant view of the lake. Felsőtárkány–Lillafüred is a journey that crosses the Bükk National Park and offers views of the park, as well as forest greenery with rising and falling slopes. The Káli Basin is another must-see journey when hitting the Hungarian roads. Pick an SUV, a 4x4, or your choice of rental cars, and head through Káli Basin in Balaton-Uplands, which has been dubbed the Hungarian Tuscany, with colourful rolling hills and quaint historical villages.
