Helló and isten hozott to TransferWise, Hungarian bank details.

Whether you’re in Buda or Pest, Bangkok or Pisco, you can now receive forints straight into your TransferWise account — just like a local could. This means you can get paid, receive money from friends and family, or send forints to yourself.

These bank details will be unique to you, and are free to get if you have a personal account. More money — or pénz — for you.

Doing business across borders?
If you have a business account, bank details come with a one-time fee of £16. So see if it’s worth you signing up for a business account here.

You can send and spend your forints too

Once you’ve received your forints you can spend instantly with your debit card. And if you’re not shopping in Hungary, it’ll auto-convert to the home currency of the country you’re in for a small conversion fee. You don’t need to lift a finger — except to tap that little green card, of course.

If you’ve not got a debit card yet, sign up in minutes right here. And just a heads up, there’s a small fee to cover postage and verification.

But there’s no rush to spend your forints. You can hold it in your account, convert it to different currency, or send it to another account. Whatever you do with your forints, it’s in the “(Buda)pest” hands — it’s safe with TransferWise.

What’s next?

Right now, Hungarian bank details are available wherever our multi-currency account is available. And we’re working to add more bank details for different currencies. Money without borders, we’re coming for you.

New to TransferWise but want to receive Hungarian forint without any fees? It’s free to create an account, and you don’t even have to leave your sofa — sign up here.
