Top tips for renting a car in Hungary

  • Those wishing to explore the countryside will find it very advantageous to rent a car in Hungary. Popular destinations accessible by car include Lake Balaton, Bükk National Park, the wine-growing regions of Eger and Tokaj, and the Pilis Mountains.
  • Several national highways (including M1, M3, M5, and M7) are toll roads, meaning that anyone who wishes to use them will need to display a toll sticker in the windshield of their rental car. These stickers are available from outlets such as petrol stations and can be purchased for different time periods, starting from around 2,100 HUF (7.50 USD) for 4 days.
  • Child seats are mandatory for children under 3 years of age, even when making short trips, e.g., between the airport and the city center. Most rental agencies are able to provide baby or child booster seats for an additional fee; during the busy periods of the year, it is especially important to book in advance. As an example, you can expect to pay approximately 2,000 HUF (7 USD) per day for this service with an agency like Buchbinder. Regardless of age, children under 150 cm (59 in) in height are not allowed to sit in the front seat without an appropriate restraint.
  • Many people who rent a car in Hungary will want to travel across an international border into another European country. Although rules vary by agency and should always be checked in advance, the vast majority, including Avis and Hertz, will allow you to cross a border into a Western European country (such as Austria) without a problem. Eastern European countries such as Albania or Croatia may be subject to restrictions.
