Budapest Travel Insurance
Travelling to Budapest
Budapest is fast becoming one of the most popular holiday destinations in eastern Europe. As Hungary's capital, it offers a number of hidden gems — from the 'ruin bars' and the banks of the Danube, to the neo-Gothic tunnel that is Budapest's Great Market Hall to pick up the very best of its local produce.
Choosing the right policy for you
While the UK is just about still part of Europe (see more on Brexit), you do still need European travel insurance for your Hungarian holiday. Starting from comprehensive plans, all the way up to premium cover, we have the flexibility to secure your well-deserved trip to this pearl of the Danube.
We like to think of ourselves as a fairly straightforward company, maintaining our core values, and we feel that the same principles should be applied to when you buy holiday insurance. We have just 2 policies with 4 levels of cover: single-trip or annual multi-trip insurance; Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum.
You can add extras on to your policy depending on the nature of your trip. If you plan on partaking on some extreme sports (we'll see ourselves out...) such as caving underneath the streets of Budapest, then along with your helmet-mounted lamp, you will need travel insurance cover to safeguard your trip.
Other extras can include gadget cover, which might come in handy on your excursions, or if you lose your phone. Unfortunately if this occurs after a tipple of Hungary's infamous pálinka, you might be in danger of invalidating your policy.** If this sounds like you then this (and wedding cover) are already included in the Platinum level of cover!
Top 5 things to see and do in Budapest:
1. Gellert Hill
Over 235 m high, Gellert Hill offers the best views of the river Danube and both the districts of Buda and Pest, as well as being crowned by Budapest's Statue of Liberty and other noteworthy monuments.
2. Buda Castle
With its vast underground system and galleries and museums, the castle is your one-stop-shop for culture, including the breath-taking architecture that makes it a World Heritage site.
3. Heroes' Square
The sometimes daunting square is filled with the statues of Hungary's seven chieftains and other noteworthy parliamentary individuals.
4. St. Stephens Basilica
This vast Roman Catholic Basilica is impressive both inside and out and is the largest church in Hungary. If this is not enough to win you over, the Basilica also holds regular organ concerts.
5. Hungary Parliament Building
Even from the outside, this building is worth visiting! It's more or less impossible to miss, due to its domination of the skyline of Budapest and its imposing structure on the banks of the Danube.
Is Budapest safe to travel to?
Hungary is a generally safe country, however, you should take precautions against crime, especially if you'll be visiting busy areas, bars, or using public transport, particularly at night.
Is English spoken in Budapest?
Although the first language is Hungarian, English is often spoken in the capital. However, English is less widely spoken in the countryside.
