How much will a trip to the 2021 Hungarian Grand Prix cost?

Work out the cost of your trip to Budapest for the 2021 Hungarian Grand Prix on July 30 to August 1. Estimated costs for race tickets, accommodation and spending money.


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.



High End

  • Average costs are per person, based on a stay of 3 nights in central Budapest with race tickets, accommodation and spending money. The prices do not include flights (or other travel costs) required to reach Budapest.
  • About our categories: Budget fans buy the cheapest race tickets (General Admission) and camp by the track or stay in a hostel. Mid-Range fans buy a grandstand ticket and stay in a 3-star hotel, whilst High-End fans buy a hospitality package and stay in a 4 or 5 star hotel.

  1. 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
