Szia! :) My love & me want to drive bicycles during our time in Budapest, as cheap as possible, rickety is great :) ... allowing us some freedom to go and come whenever we want and not depending on public transport and its hours... any flee markets or second-hand shops you can recommend? Köszönöm!

To rent a bike you could try Yellow Zebra, which is behind the Opera. Several stores sell second-hand bikes. Also, there is a Facebook group selling used bikes in Budapest. I guess it depends how much time you will spend here, how many days/week/months you want to use bikes whether it makes sense to buy one. With luck you may be able to find one on the Facebook group for c. 50 Euros or so. More likely 75.

We are staying 2,5 months, so buying would be better. I don't see anything on their webpage, but I will drop by the shop when there! Thanks for the advice... Can you give me the name of the FB-group? Köszönöm!

Hi there!
Well, honestly, I wouldn't try find a flea market or any market where they sell bikes in Budapest, the main reason is that most likely every second bike in a market like this is stolen... I think you wouldn't wanna get caught because of this, so I'd prefer another possibility, I'd recommend try the city bike option, there are plenty of pick-up/down points all around the city, they are comfortable for the city tours, and safe, and it is kinda cheap for a whole day too, you just have to pay a deposit at the beginning, but more information here:
