If you've already made your travel arrangements for Hungary's capital, you're pretty much good to go. And by choosing your ideal vehicle through our car hire service, you'll be able to get the very best out of your destination.

At Holiday Extras, we compare a huge range of car hire companies, deals and vehicles, making it easy for you to select the option that suits you best, and saves you more.


Widely considered to be one of the world's most beautiful cities, Budapest is often referred to as the Pearl of the Danube – and with very good reason. The city is replete with gorgeous architecture, Buda Castle, for example, one of three UNESCO World Heritage sites that can be found in Budapest. This impressive 13th-century palace also delivers unforgettable views that will allow you to properly take in the River Danube as it flows in front of you.

Day trips

You might also like to visit many of Budapest's neighbouring towns and cities, such as Esztergom, the country's original capital. Here, you can take in the ruins of the Hungarian Royal Palace and the Basilica of Esztergom. You could also explore the beech-and-oak-forested Pilis Mountains that are situated nearby.

Your kind of vehicle

Whether you require a straightforward city car that can easily navigate the streets of Budapest or a rugged four-wheel drive that can handle less forgiving back roads, we have a vehicle for you.

If you're travelling with a group of family or friends, you might require a practical seven-seat MPV. Or, if you would like a car that delivers comfort and convenience in equal measure, we can offer you one of a number of premium-level vehicles. We also provide a number of drop-off and pick-up points in and around Budapest.

Car hire that is easy to organise

Booking your ideal holiday vehicle is simple, and when you make your car hire arrangements, we'll provide you with email confirmation and a unique booking number. Be sure to have these details ready to hand when you pick up your vehicle.

  • A full driving licence
  • A valid DVLA code
