Thanks to its location, Hungary has become a key causeway, allowing businesses to transport precious goods right through the heart of Europe. With seven countries bordering Hungary, it's easy to see why parcels are constantly being sent into the country. The convenient location of the country has seen the Hungarian economy grow steadily, which has led to Hungary consistently being named amongst the fifty wealthiest countries in the world.
Hungary has also become a hugely popular tourist destination, with an estimated ten million visitors each year taking in the sights and sounds of Budapest, Lake Balaton and beyond. The country is also home to just under ten million people and over half a million businesses, meaning demand to send parcels to Hungary has never been higher.

Do I need to deal with customs when sending from the UK to Hungary?
Hungary voted to join the EU in 2003 and became a member in 2004. Due to the fact both the UK and Hungary are members of the European Union, there is no need to worry about any interference from customs when sending a package from the UK to Hungary. The UK, however, voted to leave the EU in 2016, meaning any current agreements could be subject to change. If the situation does alter in the future, ParcelBroker will let you know before you send any packages.
How much does it cost to send a parcel from the UK to Hungary?
We have a service specifically designed to make sending parcels to the EU as easy as possible. Our door to door service is available from only £16.95 + VAT. The exact amount, however, will depend on the weight and size of your parcel. We also offer optional extras including insurance to make sure any valuable items you may be sending are fully protected.
How should I address my parcel for delivery to Hungary?
Like many of its neighbours, Hungary's addresses require a four-digit code which contains information on the postal region and routing area, as well as the routing zone and destination. Please make sure you have checked over the address thoroughly before sending your parcel to Hungary.
What items can I send to Hungary?
You are able to send most items to Hungary although there are some restrictions. Hungary's restricted items list is pretty similar to the EU's, but the country does have some specific items that are prohibited. These include any form of national monetary instruments such as bank drafts, stocks and bonds. You are also not allowed to send copied DVDs or CDs into Hungary if they infringe on any copyright laws. For a full list of restricted and prohibited items, you can consult with the Hungarian post office.
