Location information for Budapest

Dubbed as “The Paris of the East”, Budapest is Hungary's capital that is home to a plethora of charming old structures that boast great historical value. Its main city is divided in two sections, with Pest at the Danube banks' northern part while Buda offering more of the city's history at the Danube's southern part. Cheap car hire in Budapest allows visitors to tour both areas more conveniently.

The key landmark of Budapest is the Hösök tere or the Heroes' Square. It serves as a good base for exploring the city since from there, visitors can already see the Imre Varga Collection (Varga Imre Gyüjtemény) where the pieces from the sculptor can be found.

Budapest is home to renowned figures like Kun, and visitors can enjoy viewing his Hungarian folk art collection in the Zsigmond Kun Folk Art Museum (Lakásmúzeum) where he once lived. Driving over to Buda, visitors can see the walled Castle district where a medieval town stands. Inside are more places to see like the Budapest Historical Museum, the Royal Palace, and the Hungarian National Gallery and Library. There is also the Gothic St. Matthias Church that is already 700 years old.

Budapest is also known for its spas and hot springs, and visitors are welcome to spend a relaxing day in classic Turkish baths like the Rudas Baths and the exclusive Kiraly Baths for women. The FMH Cultural House and Marczibanyi Square Cultural House are good venues to experience Hungarian folk dance and music. For young travellers, a trip to the Children's Railroad (Gyermekvasut) is a good option.

Just outside Budapest are more places to visit with the help of car rental. Cheap car hire in Budapest can take travellers to Palatinus Strand, a well-situated beach in the heart of Margaret Island. Visiting the historical towns like Szentendre also makes a good option for a day trip.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Ecarz.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
