Practical, Local Tips in Budapest
Before heading to Budapest, there are a few things you should be aware of. The first is money. The Hungarian currency is forint. Any cash you carry into Budapest will have to be exchanged for you to use. However, credit cards are accepted in many places. Before you exchange your cash, check on the exchange rate. Places such as airports can charge more and you will get less bang for your buck.
Another important tip is language. While English is not the native language of Budapest, it is still common enough that you won’t have too much of a problem communicating. However, it’s always a good idea to have a few handy phrases on board like “Take me to,” “Do you speak English?” and of course “Where is the bathroom?”
As for transportation, Budapest is a great walking city though Buda is much hillier than Pest. Public transportation and taxis are available as well as rentable bikes. Public transportation provides lots of access to the city and can be cheaper than taxis or bikes. If you want to save even more, buying passes for the transportation system will make it even easier to get on and transfer without having to buy more tickets all the time. If you need an airport transfer, we encourage you to choose our service. Also, we have an airport transfer back to the airport.
Taxis can also be a good way to get right where you need to without having to walk a long way. However, it’s important to stay away from any independent taxis and only take ones with established companies. If you still want to enjoy the view of walking with less work, renting city bikes might be the choice for you.
