GETTING TO BUDAPEST
Budapest is not only the capital and the most populous city of Hungary but also one of the largest cities in the European Union.
The international airport Budapest Ferenc Liszt (BUD) is a big airport Hub and it serves all major airlines including several low-cost airlines from which we will mention Wizzair.
Hungary has a developed motorway network. For using the motorways you have to buy vignette (road tax sticker), available at border crossing points and at petrol stations. You need to have with you local money (forintz) or international bank card for the fuel stations.
The Hungarian traffic rules, traffic signs and road markings are similar to those found in any other European country. However, it is important to highlight a few important traffic regulations: seatbelts are obligatory front and rear, using mobile phones while driving brings a big fine. Drinking and driving is highly punished in Hungary. Drivers consuming any alcohol will have the driver licenses suspended and fine can reach up to HUF 300,000 (€ 1000);
Speed limits: in cities is 50 km/h, outside cities 90 km/h, on major international roads 110 km/h and on motorways 130 km/h;
