Hungary Currency: Euros?
  • Does Hungary accept the Euro readily.
  • Hungary is not yet a member of the euro area. The forint is not yet within the Exchange Rate Mechanism (ERM II).
  • I was told that Hungary does not use checks. Is this true?
  • Hi Shelley,

    Do you mean traveler checks or personal checks? Anyhow they are both not welcomed in HUngary, I would say in whole Europe. You cant pay with it. If you exchange it very high commission is going to be taken. You are better off with EUROS, almost everywhere you can use it except the official places such as post office, pharmacy, cab drivers...

    Have a great time!

  • Hi Expat,

    Would you say that I can get by on Euros alone or would it be wise to have some Forint as well?
