Budapest Mini Guide

Budapest is the centre of transportation in Hungary and that is why we provide car hire Budapest to tourists and business travellers. Choose from a range of vehicles which let you drive on either side of the huge Danube River. There are numerous cultural attractions to enjoy such as the spring festival while the city leads the way in arts and culture including a number of interesting art galleries and museums. Budapest itself has many UNESCO World Heritage Sites and having a hire car is an effective way to navigate around Budapest.

Budapest Airport is ten miles from the city centre and is served by most of the major budget carriers. A rental car can be collected from Budapest or Budapest airport, and we advise pre-booking online to receive the vehicle of your choice at the very best price.
