                    Benefits of planning ahead

                    There’s lots to think about when planning a holiday, but you can tick one big thing off your list by ordering your currency before you fly.

                    Currency exchange rates can go up or down daily, so leaving it to the last minute can limit your choices. By having Forints with you when you travel, you won’t need to search for ATMs or local currency exchange shops.

                      Get your currency when it’s convenient for you

                      Use Click & Collect and arrange to pick up your Forints as part of your weekly shop, either from a Tesco Travel Money bureau or selected customer service desks. Or, you could try our home delivery service – free on all online orders of £500 or more.

                      Exchange rates can change throughout the day and will vary depending on whether you are buying in store, online or over the phone.

                        Handy information about Hungary and the Forint (HUF)

                        Spending and exchanging Forints in Hungary

                        • You can change Pounds for Forints at currency exchange bureaux, banks and in some hotels.
                        • Bureaux tend to charge a commission so check before you buy.

                        Facts about Hungarian ATMs

                        • ATMs are common in Hungary and will typically charge a foreign exchange fee, so again worth checking.
                        • Look out for machines that have recognisable banks and big brands on them, as independent ATMs are more likely to charge far higher transaction fees.
                        • You might have to pay a larger fee when withdrawing from a hotel or airport bureau.
                        • Withdrawing money in Forint can help you avoid higher fees, and avoid larger currency exchange charges.

                        Currency Denominations

                        • Forints come in coins of Ft5, Ft10, Ft20, Ft50, Ft100, Ft200
