Money Matters & Banks

Hungarian Currency

Although now a member of the European Union (EU) Hungary will not be adopting the Euro until at least 2008. Therefore, the Forint (abbreviated as Ft. or HUF) is the country's unit of currency.

Banknotes come in seven denominations of 20000, 10000, 5000, 2000, 1000, and 500 HUF, with coins of 200, 100, 50, 20, 10, 5, HUF.

Currency Exchange

Banks are open from 8am to 3pm Monday through Thursday, from 8am to 1pm on Fridays and are closed on Saturdays. Money can also be exchanged at exchange offices (note that some exchange offices charge a commission of up to 20%), hotel reception desks and travel offices. It is recommended to exchange currency only at accredited places as it is both risky and illegal to attempt to do so in the street.

Credit Cards, Debit Cards and Cheques

All the most popular credit, debit and charge cards (AMEX, Diners Club, Cirrus, EnRoute, Euro/Mastercard, JCB and VISA) can be used in banks and in ATM’s to withdraw Forints, and to pay bills in hotels, restaurants and shops. Look for the signs displayed at the entrance showing which cards are accepted.

ATMs

Currency exchange machines and ATMs operate 24 hours a day in Budapest. Major credit cards and banking cards are accepted. We suggest you to keep all money exchange receipts and records of currency exchange transactions until leaving the country.

Traveler's Cheques

There is usually a commission for cashing traveler's cheques at banks and you can use your bank or credit card to get cash at post offices. Please note that stores usually will not accept travelers cheques.
