Although Hungary is part of the EU it does not use the Euro; the official currency is the Hungarian Forint (HUF). It is divided into 100 fillér. Most international credit cards are accepted at shops, restaurants and hotels. Banks usually open between 8am and 3pm on weekdays and some are open on Saturdays, while ATMs are available in towns and cities throughout the country.
