Money and currency

 

MoneyThe currency in Hungary is Hungarian Forint=HUF or Ft. One EUR is about 360 HUF depending on the daily course. We have banknotes for amounts of 500, 1000, 2000, 5000, 10000 and 20000 – some exist in two different colours as new banknotes are being launched. There are six different coins for Forint: 5, 10, 20, 50, 100 and 200. Just for your information: in restaurants when you are satisfied with the service, the staff would be happy if they get a tip about 10-15% from the bill’s amount. Also it might be, that the service is already included in the bill.
