Getting around – Taxis

Licensed taxies have yellow number plates, so keep an eye out for ones with plain white ones.

Any inner city taxi ride should cost you no more than 3000 ft.

Getting around – Public Transport

The public transportation system is the most convenient way of getting about town and can also the most cost effective:

If you are planning on taking over three rides, it’s worth buying a day or week pass depending on the amount of time spent in the city.

Card or Cash?

Avoid paying by card at smaller shops and eateries – you’ll just end up running to the nearest cash machine!

Cash Machines

Many cash machines are not compatible with foreign banks so always look out for OTP – the largest Hungarian bank most likely to take your card.

Office Hours

If you are wanting to send a post card home, avoid doing it on Friday as practically everything closes around noon.
