    Driving in Hungary

    An excellent way to see the greatness of Hungary's capital city, Budapest, is to simply drive your hire car along the banks of the Danube and keep an eye out for the amazing architecture present. When driving along the west side of the river, known as Buda, you will see the impressive parliament house across the water. Alternatively, when you are travelling in your car hire along the east bank, known as Pest, you will get a grand view of Castle Hill, a superbly restored area showcasing historic architecture.

    For an amazing view of the city, drive your hire car up to Gellerthegy, a large hill in Buda quite close to Erzsebet Bridge. The lookouts at the top of the hill provide magnificent views of the city, especially at night time when the city is all lit up. For an alternative insight into the 20th-century history of Hungary, drive out to Statue Park, not far out from the city centre. Here you will come face to face with over 40 oversized pieces of art from communist times which have been well preserved.

    During warmer months, take a scenic drive southwest of Budapest and visit Lake Balaton, the largest lake in Central Europe. Popular with both Hungarians and foreigners alike, there are many activities you can take part in on the lake, including fishing, canoeing and wind sailing.

    Country Essentials

    In line with the norm across continental Europe, traffic in Hungary flows on the right-hand side, and vehicles pass only on the left-hand side of the road. Speed limits in Hungary range from: City 50km per hour to Highways 130km per hour.

Some suppliers may have a maximum age limit of 75 years.

    Tolls and Freeways

    In Hungary, every motorway is a toll road, administered by the National Highway Authority. Toll roads are monitored electronically, and you must check that the supplier has provided the e-Vignette in their fleet or purchase and register your own at a petrol station in Hungary so that you can pay tolls.
