We don’t have a huge amount of content on our Hungary Travel Blog page just yet despite the fact we’ve road tripped our way though the country 3 times now. All our experiences of Hungary have been good and we’ve stayed overnight in 3 very different places, magnificent Budapest, the pretty city of Gyor and in a cabin on a lovely lake. Accommodation and food prices are low, standards are high and overall Hungary has given us a lot of good experiences. We will be exploring Hungary in more depth soon, after all it’s right next door to our new home-base, Romania.
Driving in Hungary
Our only negative experience so far came from the road tolls and taxes. When I first crossed Hungary I didn’t know about the compulsory toll or vignette. We arrived late and went straight to our hotel in Gyor where I asked what the story was and did some Googling. The next morning we set off and continued our drive, stopping at the first motorway gas station to buy a vignette. Unfortunately Hungarian motorway cameras had already noticed me and I received a fine in the post some weeks later, despite the fact I was in possession of a valid vignette. So learn from my mistake. You can either buy your vignette online in advance or buy one just past any of the borders.
