Budget Planner – 2021 Hungarian Grand Prix

Filed in 2021 Hungarian Grand Prix Travel Guide by on 5 Comments

Plan the cost of your trip to Budapest for the 2021 Hungarian Grand Prix, including estimated costs for race tickets, accommodation and spending money.

Please Note: The 2020 Hungarian Grand Prix on July 17-19 will be held behind closed doors and without spectators due to the coronavirus pandemic. This post will be updated with current prices when dates are announced for the 2021 Hungarian Grand Prix and ticket sales begin.

Budapest is one of Formula 1’s most affordable destinations. If you are traveling from Europe, it’s cheap and easy to get to the city for the race in July. On the ground, hotels are good quality and cheap, with little in the way of an ‘F1 surcharge’ on Grand Prix weekend. Eating and drinking in the city won’t break the bank unless you want it to and it’s possible to get to and from the circuit each day cheaply. Hungary’s currency, the Forint (HUF), is also weak by international standards, making a cheap trip for those carrying stronger currencies such as the US dollar.

    Had to laugh at the Cheap Charlie, Average Joe and Extravagent Eddie. My mate and I are a combination of all off these and as seasoned Grand Prix go’ers I’d say we’re quite typical i combining this together.

    We typically go extravagent on the tickets (Gold 4 at Hungary, 8A at Monza etc, typically in Turn 1). We are typically average Joe’s when it comes to accomodation, we’ve camped on circuit, 3* hotels and this year in Budapest we’ve rented an apartment. And when it comes to food and drink at the circuit, we’re cheap Charlie tending to do a supermarket run to stock up beers and waters and make up sandwiches. Of course this is cheaper, but for us as well it’s about knowing more of what you’re eating. Each night though we like to eat a nice meal in an Average Joe restaurant.

    Made me laugh though :-)

    Looking forward to my 10th GP this year in Budapest
