Location information for Budapest

Budapest is the capital of Hungary that boasts some of Europe's most impressive and grand structures from its Habsburg heyday. Often referred to as the Paris of the East, the entire city is divided into two areas: the historical Buda at the south of the Danube and the Pest at the north of the riverbanks. Visitors can benefit more when availing cheap car hire in Budapest so they can easily acquaint themselves with everything that the city has to offer.

The Heroes' Square (Hosok tere) is a city landmark that serves as a good starting point for exploring Budapest. The most historical area of Budapest is Buda, and this area boasts several attractions like the Royal Palace, the Hungarian National Gallery and Library, the Gothic and 700-year old St. Matthias Church, the Budapest Historical Museum, and the medieval Old Town.

Gothic parliament buildings standing by the river are best viewed from the Chain Bridge across the Danube. The Pest area is filled with neo-classical structures like the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, the Opera House, the Museum of Applied Arts, the Post Office Savings Bank, and the St. Stephen's Basilica. The National Museum is housed in an 18th century building and it offers an account of Magyar History.

Budapest is known for its spring baths with some of them dating back from the time when Romans were around. The notable baths are the ones in Buda's Hotel Gellert but there are also others like the Rudas Baths and the women-only Kiraly Baths. The city streets are highly pedestrianised and lined with restaurants and cafes serving both international and Hungarian specialties.

Availing cheap car hire in Budapest gives travellers the advantage of taking day trips to 14th century Szentendre, one of the charming historical towns above the Danube situated among the hills. Budget car rental also takes visitors to Visegrad where a Renaissance palace can be seen.

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 ERentals 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). Which car rental companies are compared by ERentals? at this location
