Converting your destination’s currency to the rupee when you're abroad can be stressful and end up putting a real dampener on your holiday spirits. It's best to relax and live in the moment.

Think all of Europe is expensive? Well, then consider Hungary – the European destination that makes you love the fact that you earn in INR.

Capital Budapest has lots to offer and is a tourist hotspot.
Top places to visit (Budapest): Parliament, Fisherman’s Bastion, Castle Hill, State Opera House, Pinball Museum, Margaret Island, and Music Fountain.
