By car

In Hungary four interstate highways and four main roads leave from Budapest (except the main road 8).

It is obligatory to have a toll-road sticker for all highways (available at the frontier and at gas stations). The sticker for 10-day duration is approx. 2000-3000 HUF (approx.€7-10).

The same rules of the road apply as in the other European countries. However, here are some rules tourist must stick to: the speed limit in town is 50km/h, outside of living space 90km/h and on highways 110km/h. In town honking is only permitted in justified cases. Drinking and driving is punished very strictly.
