Calling Hungary

Don't call Hungary direct unless you want to spend a lot of money. Use a calling card or a prepaid phone service instead. Determine what time it is in Hungary before you dial!

Hungary is 1 hour ahead of Greenwich Mean Time. Calling between 7 pm and 7 am, or on weekends will often cost up to 50 percent less than calling during business hours. Call your long-distance carrier to find out which hours are cheapest to call internationally with your long-distance plan.
