Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport (BUD)
Car Hire / Rental
Standing close to the E60 Highway, the Budapest Ferihegy Airport (BUD) offers plenty of choice when it comes to car rental. Access to many parts of the city is available and in general, driving in Budapest is not considered especially challenging, although the city centre is often prone to traffic jams. Hence many visitors choose to hire cars when flying into Ferihegy Airport, in order to make getting around during their stay more comfortable and convenient.
Whilst hire cars are available on arrival at the Ferihegy Airport complex, we recommend that you reserve your car ahead of travelling. This way you not only have a better chance of getting the exact make and model that you require, but you will also get a more competitive price.

Car Rental, Driving and Parking in Budapest
Central Budapest can be difficult to find your way around by car and local Hungarian drivers often ignore the basic rules of the road, driving rather recklessly at times. However, outside of the city centre, a rental car from Ferihegy Airport affords the perfect mode of transport, with Bratislava and Vienna being especially popular locations within driving distance of Budapest, lying to the north-west.
Being a major city, parking in Budapest is often difficult. Many visitors choose to leave their cars at their hotel car park and simply use the metro to reach the city centre. Several multi-storey parking garages can be found in the city, together with some street parking, although the 'park and ride' sites close to the main underground stations often provide the easiest, stress-free option.
