The Hungarian National Foundation for Recreation (HNFR) is the main body responsible for social tourism in Hungary. HNFR was established as a non-profit organization by the government of Hungary and 6 trade union confederations with the purpose to encourage the participation of active employees and pensioners in tourism. From 2012 the mission and the target groups of HNFR have been altered significantly. Social inclusion – facing the challenge of integration – and the support of “right to have a break” – making tourist leisure accessible to socially disadvantaged groups – have become the key principles behind HNFR’s objectives. The current social tourism initiative called Erzsébet Program - introduced in 2012 -has become the largest national social tourism program, involving each year over 1% of the country’s population in domestic tourism through social tourism grants.
