Transport rent in Budapest and Hungary

Rent a car

The cost of renting a car in Hungary is quite high due to additional taxes:

  • Opel corsa, manual 22,3 USD = 18 EUR
  • Vokswagen golf, manual 38,5 USD = 31 EUR

If you decide to travel outside of Hungary, carefully read the terms of the lease. From my own experience in this case, I advise the company HERTZ For an additional 31 USD = 25 EUR you will be issued a green card - insurance for most of Europe, including the Balkan countries. The exception will be the region of Serbia - Kosovo, Albania and Macedonia. They have already paid for the use of any roads in Hungary. The final cost of this option will be about 29,8 USD = 24 EUR per day.


The cost of gasoline varies, it is cheaper in the country. On toll roads more expensive. One of the cheapest options is a refueling from the Auchan store.
