FAQ
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for a rental car should preferably be made by credit card. It is possible to pay by debit card, however at the rental counter you will need a credit card issued to the main driver in order to secure the deposit for your rental car.
Who is allowed to drive the rental car and what are the conditions?
A rental car can be driven by a main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. The main and additional drivers are to present a valid driving license, which they have been in possession of for at least one year (please refer to the rental conditions), and a valid identity card/passport. Additionally, the main driver is to present a valid credit card issued in their name.
Do I have to pick up and return the car at any time? What happens if I am late for pick-up?
We recommend that you pick up the car at the agreed time as the availability of the car cannot be guaranteed in case of a delay. As a rule, local suppliers keep vehicles available up to 30 or 60 minutes after the agreed time. If a delay is inevitable, please contact the rental agency (you will find their contact details on the voucher).
What documents are required to pick up the vehicle?
When picking up the vehicle, the main driver is to present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driving's license and their valid credit card.

The city originally started as a Celtic settlement which then went on to become the capital of the Roman area of Lower Pannonia. In the 9th century, the Hungarians arrived and through the 15th century, the city became the center of a powerful central European state. It also became a center piece during the Renaissance period. After the 15th century the country and city well under Ottoman rule, followed by the Hapsburg Empire, until 1873 when the two parts ‘Buda’ and ‘Pest’ were unified. Today the city is one of the most visited destinations on the continent, offering visitors amazing architecture, great food and a lot of culture. The city is split into two areas, ‘Buda’ and ‘Pest’ both of which are uniquely different, both of which you can see with your rental car Budapest.

Sights

Buda is where most of the city’s best and most famous sights can be found. Home to the famous hill, where you can take in the stunning Royal Palace, completed in the 13th century. The palace has been destroyed and rebuilt on many occasions, but today, the palace is now home to three museums. Other sites on the castle hill include Matthia Church, the Fisherman's Bastion and the Mary Magdalene Tower. As well as Castle Buda has its own sights such as the Elizabeth Lookout found on John’s Hill above the city, giving you a great view of the city. Take a walk through the famous Memento Park, only a 20 minute drive from the city center and the park is home is to countless statues. The Acuincum is a must, as it is a sort of open museum with artifacts and buildings from the old Roman city. There are some museums which are well worth a visit, such as the museums that can be found in the Royal Palace and the Medical History Museum.

Pest is found on the eastern side of the Danube and is the smaller of the two parts of the city. Despite being smaller it still has some great sights on offer. One of, if not the most impressive sight to see, is the Parliament building. This daunting and mightily impressive building was built in 1902 on the side of the Danube and it is roughly based on the houses of Parliament in London. Other sights include St. Stephan's Cathedral and the city park.
