Pros: Good city location and the staff was friendly and helpful. They changed the drop off fee to 150 Euros and took off the GPS charge. They tried to make the rental right but they could not do anything about the "upgraded car" and agreed that the VW Golf was not an SUV category.
Cons: They were fine it was the left over dissatisfaction with Avis in Prague.

Pros: Only thing that is worth mentioning is the pick up and drop off was okay
Cons: Lots of hidden charges. Excess was 800 as stated by all info I received however when I reached the desk it was 1000 so I had to take out the full insurance which cost me an additional 180 euro.

Top tips for renting a car in Budapest

  • It is well worth considering renting a car during your time in Budapest, especially if you are a family traveling together. While for the most part public transportation is widely available, at times it can be laborious and time consuming to use. This is particularly the case if you would like to visit the many tourist destinations in the city’s neighboring areas. For instance, Esztergom is the former capital of Hungary and is just 60 km away from Budapest. There is also the Gödöllő Palace, which is a mere 30 km from the city.
  • Is step one of your vacation in Hungary picking up the hire car? For travelers with flights landing at Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport, the hire car desks are conveniently located in the main hall of the airport.
  • In Budapest there are strictly no right turns on red at intersections. The only time this does not apply is when there is a separate green turn signal indicating that you may turn. Drivers caught turning right on red risk fines and there is no leeway given to travelers who claim to not know that this was a rule.
  • Rush hour traffic in Budapest, like many capital cities, can be rough at times. Drivers can expect the morning rush hour to start around 7:00 a.m. and last until 9:30 a.m., while in the afternoon the traffic picks up again at around 4:00 p.m. and cools down at about 7:00 p.m. The central business district is one of the worst-hit areas, particularly in the evening, so travelers are advised to avoid it at those times if they can.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Budapest for AED 83 or less
  • Book your rental car in Budapest at least 2 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
