    Handy driving tips for Hungary

    Hungary is a country that is filled with amazing scenery and has many historic treasures to explore. Hungary has long been overlooked for the more typical holiday destinations, such as Spain and France. We thought that it was about time this stunning country got a mention and here are some of our driving tips for a Hungary car hire holiday!

    Grab a cheap flight and collect your hire car at Budapest Airport. It is a wonderful city and not hard to navigate yourself around. Traffic in Hungary travels on the right, but be careful as you must always give way to taxis and buses! If you are looking to park up in the city then you are in luck as most main tourist areas have free parking now that is something you won't find in many cities!

    If you are heading off onto the motorways then you must make sure that you have a toll sticker. Currently they are required for the following motorways; M1, M3, M5, M6, M7, M30 and M35. You can obtain the stickers at petrol stations or motorway service stations and they last for 4 days, 1 week or 1 month. The speed limit on the motorways is 74mph/120kph.

    If you do get pulled over by a police car for committing a traffic offence then they will issue you with a payment order that must be paid in full within 30 days. You should at no time hand cash to a police officer.

    Thinking of taking your Hungary hire car to more remote locations? If you do then be sure to check you have a full tank of fuel as some of the smaller towns may not have petrol stations. Also it is handy to have some small change with you as it is common practice to tip the staff when they fill up your car.

    Another point to make is if you have any children aged 3 or below travelling with you then they must be seated in a suitable child restraint system appropriate for their weight.

    These are just a few general yet important tips when planning a car hire holiday. The freedom that you have is yours for the planning, and don't forget we are always here if you run out of ideas!
