Some notes about Hungarian Forint
The official currency of Hungary is the Forint (abbreviated as Ft and also known as HUF - Hungarian Forint). It's divided into 100 fillér, although fillér coins are no longer in circulation.
The Forint's name comes from the city of Florence, whose gold-based currency was originally called Florentinus in the 14th century, later abbreviated to Forint.
The new currency was introduced in 1946 and today comes in 500, 1000, 2000, 5000, 10000 & 20000 Forint notes. There are also 5, 10, 20, 50, 100 and 200 Ft coins in circulation.
You'll need some of the smaller denomination currency for tipping if you eat out, drink at a bar or take a taxi.
Unless you are very disappointed by the service, it's considered rude if you don't leave a tip - generally 10% of the price.
Try to leave your tip in cash and not include it on a card if you can. Most, even the service charge in a Hungarian restaurant is likely to go to the management and not the staff.
