Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Budapest car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Budapest.
Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Budapest car rental.

Like many European cities, Budapest has many pre-automobile era roads and lanes that are ill suited for larger vehicles. Thus, if you plan to fully explore the city, then you are better off renting a smaller vehicle such as a compact or a sedan. Smaller vehicles are especially recommended if you will be parking in the downtown areas.
For the most part, drivers can expect speed limits of 50 km/h (31 mph) throughout Budapest and in towns and cities across Hungary. On smaller highways and open roads, the speed limit bumps up to 90 to 110 km/h (56 to 68 mph) and on the fastest highways it goes all the way up to 130 km/h (81 mph).

In general, streetside parking is not too difficult to find in Budapest, particularly in the outer districts of the city. However, in the more historical parts of town, streetside parking can become scarce and, if spots are available, they tend to be limited in size. Private parking garages and lots are available and are a great option for drivers visiting the central areas of the city.
