–Exchange rate: 1 EUR: round 400 – 410 Hungarian Forints
–Money: at some places you can only pay in cash, so it’s always good to get some from an ATM you can find everywhere. Always check your money carefully, as some banknotes and coins look quite similar.
–Tap water is absolutely healthy in Budapest – partly thankfully to the thermal waters
–Taxi: It’s better to call one on +361 1 666 666, you can talk to an English operator and it arrives soon. Unfortunately Uber is not available in Hungary, Bolt (Taxify) is. Beware of the Freelancer taxis – always choose one that has a company logo.
–Tipping etiquette is generally 10% for a good service. Still, do check the bill in a restaurant, as in some case service may already be added.
