Useful Information

Transfer Time
The transfer from Budapest Airport to ibis Budapest Centrum Hotel is approximately 40 minutes, depending on traffic.

Included Programme
During your holiday, we have included a 3 hour guided tour of the the city.

More to Explore
Budapest is such a lovely city with so much to see and do, your Tour Leader will be able to advise of excursions you may like to participate in or good places to visit.

Gratuities
We suggest a Group Collection to cover guides, transfer drivers, and hotel staff of minimum £15.00 per person. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate % to add on.

Currency
Hungarian forint (HUF) 

The hungarian banks offer better exchange rates than the foreign ones, so it's better to exchange money in Budapest than getting Hungarian Forints abroad.

Dress Code

Casual daytime wear is recommended. Comfortable shoes are a “must” for sightseeing. Smart casual clothes will be ideal for the evenings - the emphasis throughout being informality. Dressing in layers to allow for changes in temperature is recommended.
