Over the past 90 days, the Hungarian Forint has increased by 1.40% from 350.068 on the 22nd December to 354.954 today. This means £750 will buy you Ft3,664.50 more today than it would have three months ago. During this period the Hungarian Forint hit a high of 362.626 on the 16th March and a low of 348.336 on the 27th December. You can see more historical exchange rate data over longer time frames on our Hungarian Forint exchange rate history page.
Using our comparison form at the top of the page, enter the amount of Hungarian Forints you want to buy, select your preferred payment method(s) and click 'Compare Deals'. We'll return a list of UK currency suppliers who are selling Hungarian Forints right now along with their latest exchange rates and delivery information. The results are sorted in order of who is offering the most Hungarian Forints after all fees and delivery charges have been added which means the best deals are always at the top of the table. Choose the supplier you want to order with and follow the link to their website where you can place your order with them directly.
It is impossible for us to predict the best time to buy Hungarian Forints. We provide some historical exchange rate data in the chart above so you can see the overall trend, but beyond that we cannot offer any advice on when to buy. Our advice is to not worry too much about trying to perfectly time the market. Unless you are buying tens or hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of currency, the daily changes in exchange rates do not make a huge difference to the amount of currency you'll receive.
Yes, some currency suppliers do allow you to collect Hungarian Forints from them in person. We have a dedicated Click & Collect page where you can find the nearest supplier in your area. If you plan on collecting in person, we recommend ordering or reserving your Hungarian Forints online first on the supplier's website to guarantee the exchange rate. Some suppliers offer lower exchange rates if you walk in off the street, but you can usually order online in advance and collect your currency in store at the better online rate.
Most currency suppliers will dispatch your order on the same or next working day after they receive your payment, and all orders are sent via Royal Mail Special Delivery which is a fully-insured and guaranteed Next Working Day service. However, just in case any unexpected delays crop up we recommend ordering no later than 3 working days before you are due to travel. If you've left it too late for home delivery, check out our Click & Collect page to find a local Hungarian Forint supplier near you. We cover most UK airports, so in the worst case scenario you can reserve your currency online (at the better online rate) and pick it up from the departure lounge before you fly.
No. All currency is sent by Royal Mail Special Delivery which is a fully-insured and guaranteed Next Working Day service. Somebody at your address will need to sign for the package but if nobody is home when the postman attempts to deliver, they'll leave a missed delivery card and you can either collect the package from your nearest sorting office or arrange for it to be re-delivered on a more convenient day.
Generally, no. This is ultimately at the discretion of the currency supplier, but most suppliers will only deliver to the home address of the person paying for the currency (i.e. the card or bank account holder's address). This is for security reasons because a signature is required when the currency is delivered, and signatures from work or other addresses can be unreliable and difficult to prove.
All currency is sent by Royal Mail Special Delivery which is a fully-insured and guaranteed Next Working Day service. This type of postage is more secure than standard post and is meant specifically for high-value and important items because tracking is enabled by default and a signature is required as proof of delivery. It is very rare for a Special Delivery package to go missing, but in the unlikely event that it does you will be completely reimbursed by Royal Mail for the full value of the currency and the cost of postage.
The payment method you choose is important because it affects whether or not you pay any extra fees during checkout, and also whether you are financially protected in the unlikely event that something goes wrong with the supplier. We have written a more detailed guide about choosing a payment method on our blog: A guide to payment methods.
Most, but not all, currency suppliers have a minimum and a maximum amount you can order from them, however we automatically factor these into our comparisons so if you tell us exactly how much you want to spend we'll only return suppliers that can fulfill your request. Most suppliers also have a minimum amount that you can order from them to qualify for free home delivery; if you order less than this amount you can still get your order delivered by you'll have to pay for postage. Again, we automatically factor these charges into our comparisons so you don't need to worry about any hidden costs during checkout.
All of the currency suppliers we compare use SSL encryption as standard on their ordering pages. This means that when you place an order, a secure connection is created between you and the supplier and your personal and payment details are transmitted using the same level of encryption as online banking.
The level of financial protection you receive is determined by the payment method you choose. For more information see our FAQ above: What payment method should I use?
All currency suppliers are required to complete a comprehensive onboarding questionnaire before we list them on the Compare Holiday Money website. This questionnaire provides us with information on the supplier's background, financial history, directors and technical capabilities, as well as document any legal and regulatory requirements the supplier may have. Our compliance team verify the answers by cross-referencing them with various online registers such as Companies House, the Supervised Business Register and the Financial Conduct Authority, and we then make a decision as to whether to list them. Once a supplier has been listed we run regular audits to check the ongoing status and accuracy of the information provided, and if any issues are flagged up we immediately suspend the listing until the supplier corrects the issue or provides us with clarification. Despite these stringent checks, we cannot guarantee the solvency of any suppliers who appear on the Compare Holiday Money website and we urge all customers to conduct their own research before transacting with a company.
It depends. You may need to provide some ID, typically a copy of your passport or driver's licence, depending on how much currency you are ordering. Most suppliers won't ask for ID if you're ordering less than £1,000 but most will if you're ordering £2,500 or more. If you're ordering £10,000 or more you may need to provide additional information on the source of the funds. The exact requirements vary from supplier to supplier, but they will make it clear what form(s) of ID and other documents they require before you place an order.
Yes, we have a section of our website dedicated to currency buybacks: Exchange Hungarian Forints for Pounds Sterling.
Yes, we can facilitate the transfer of currency into an overseas bank account; see our Money Transfers page for more information.
A few years ago Hungary was suffering high inflation, and a weak currency made it very cheap place to visit. Prices are still about a third of what you would expect to pay in London, but the economy and currency are now much more stable. In the long term Hungary intends to join the Euro but those plans are currently on hold.
You can pay for most goods by credit or debit card, but not museum entry or public transport. ATM machines are found all over Hungary, even in the smallest and most remote villages. The best ones to use are Euronet ATMs as these dispense 5000 HUF notes, roughly equivalent to £20. Other ATM machines give out 20,000 HUF notes (equivalent to a £75 note) that shop keepers are reluctant to accept or give change for.
When buying Hungarian Forints you should ask for a mix of notes so you can pay for small taxi or bus transfer fees on arrival. Some currency suppliers may charge for this service, so it is worth finding out beforehand.
There is a common and 'legal' scam that catches out many tourists. Bars and Clubs are allowed to add a surcharge for "service" to bills. Taxi drivers are paid by the bars to recommend them. When you buy a drink a surcharge of 20,000 HUF (£75) is added to your bill or 100,000 HUF (£375) to a restaurant bill. If you cannot pay you can then be escorted to a cash point by their security and forced to pay up. For more information on this and how to avoid it we recommend reading the full advice on the UK Government website before you travel.
British passport holders can visit Hungary for up to three months without a visa. If you would like to stay for longer than this you will need to register with the nearest regional Immigration Office or contact the Hungarian Embassy in London.
Prepaid currency cards are designed specifically to be used overseas. They work the same way as a standard UK bank card, except their fees are lower when used in Hungary and the exchange rates are much better than those offered by most high street banks.
We compare travel insurance quotes to Hungary and other worldwide destinations, but you don't need to tell us your life story to get covered. In fact, we don't even ask for your name or email address, so you can be sure we won't bombard you with endless junk mail after requesting a quote.
If you need Hungarian Forints in a hurry or don't want to wait in for home delivery, our Click & Collect service can search for Hungarian Forint suppliers near you. Reserve and buy online and collect in-store at a time that's convenient for you.
If you need to send Hungarian Forints overseas or receive funds from a bank account in Hungary, you may be better off using the services of a specialist foreign exchange broker.
