Last updated 23 March 2021 | Tax suspended by national government until end of COVID-19 emergency is declared. Page has been reviewed (change for Budapest 19th district) and up to date ahead of resumption.

Idegenforgalmi Adó

The Idegenforgalmi adó is decided by each municipality up to the maximum amount set by national government (Act C of 1990 on local taxes article 30-34).

The rate is either:

  • a percentage of the room cost up to 4% or,
  • a fixed amount per person per night (up to HUF 300 plus cumulative inflation rate). In 2021, the maximum amount is approximately HUF 525.

As the rate levied is set by each municipality, the rate can also vary within a destination (such as in Budapest due to multiple districts).

Below is information on Budapest. Rates for other destinations can be found on the Hungarian State Treasury page.

 

Budapest

The tourist tax is decided by each district except districts 17-23 (excluding 19) and Margitsziget where it is decided by the General Assembly of Budapest (Fovaros Onkormanyzata).

In Budapest city centre, the rate is mainly 4% of the room cost.
