How to get to Budapest

Arrival at Budapest by air:

Most visitors will arrive at the Budapest Ferihegy Airport - Terminal 2A and Terminal 2B, or Terminal 1 in case of arriving by low fair airlines.
At Budapest Airport, Terminal 2A serves Schengen and 2B non-Schengen traffic. Aircraft arriving from the Schengen zone is automatically directed to Terminal 2A, while aircraft from outside the zone will get a stand at 2B. The passengers within the Schengen zone can save some minutes thanks to the lack of passport control

Arrival at Budapest by train:

More than fifty trains a day provide direct links between Budapest and 25 other capital cities. Trains to Vienna run every three hours. International trains operate from the three largest stations:

For further information on schedules see the timetable of the Hungarian railway.

Arrival at Budapest by car:

All Hungary's motorways and most of her main roads radiate out from the capital. The M1, M3, M5 and
are toll highways, and you must pay the appropriate toll (either at the border or at larger petrol stations). Road signs conform to continental standards. 24-hour roadside assistance is provided by the Magyar Autóklub (Tel.: (+36-1) 345-1755), and emergency roadside is available by dialing 188.

Airport mini-bus service

The airport mini-bus service will take you anywhere in Budapest. Information desk (operator) for minibus service is found in the center of the arrival lobby. This door-to-door Airport Minibus Service is reasonably priced (one-way ticket: approx. EUR 10, go- return ticket: approx. EUR 16.)
The minibus service is located outside of the customs area. Those scheduling a round-trip transportation, are requested to call to reconfirm their return trip, at least 24 hours in advance of their flight. For a ride to the airport, you may contact the hotel reception desk.

Another way of getting to the city is by taxi. The recommended company is airport taxi (Zóna Service).

Public Transport

Public transportation (BKV) is extensive and reliable. Tickets - valid for one way only - should be purchased in advance (e.g. at metro stations, hotels, news-stands, tobacco shops), since drivers do not sell any. The tickets should be validated (on board or at the entrance gates), and kept, since one must produce them if requested by inspectors on board or at the exit gates.

You may consider buying a carnet of 10 tickets or a pass (for 1/7/14 days or for a month), or a Budapest Card, instead of single tickets.
The junction of all the three metro lines is Deák tér. Service time is between 4:30 a.m. and  11.00 p.m. Most bus and tramlines operate until 11pm.


The most popular and reliable companies in Budapest are: City Taxi, 6x6 Taxi, Buda-Taxi, Főtaxi, Rádiótaxi, Taxi 2000 and Tele5 Taxi, and between the airport and the city, the Zona Taxi Service.
