Reserve your airport transfer from Budapest Ferihegy Airport in advance. Our airport transfer service costs EUR 21 going from the airport to anywhere within Budapest, no matter which side of the river you are going. To go back from Budapest to Ferihegy Airport, we charge the same flat rate of EUR 21.
When you arrive in Budapest Ferihegy Airport, you will be met at Arrivals by a driver holding a sign with your name on it. He will help you with your luggage and then drive you to your destination in Budapest, be it a hotel, an office or a friend's house. To get to downtown Budapest from the airport takes about 45 minutes in normal city traffic and 25-30 minutes at night or on weekends.
To book a transfer from the airport to downtown Budapest, please fill out the online booking form below.
We will get in contact with you within a few hours and ask you to confirm the booking. Until the booking is not confirmed, you do not have a valid reservation for an airport pickup.
If you are going to a city other than Budapest, we can still do the transfer. The price depends on the distance of the destination from the airport. Common destinations include Budaörs, Szentendre, Siófok, Nyíregyháza, Keszthely, Szombathely, etc. Please send us an email (email@example.com) and we will give you a quote for the transfer.
When you arrive at the airport in Budapest and you are looking for a ride into town, you either take the airport minibus or a taxi. The worst alternative is to go outside the arrivals terminal and catch a taxi outside. These taxis are the most expensive and the most unreliable: they are specifically for tourists, referring to people who do not know much about Budapest and Hungary and are prepared to pay more for everything. I have heard cases when they charged each passenger for the same taxi ride.
The airport minibus is a nice alternative, it is a well-organized enterprise, you wait for 20 minutes on a bench and then they deliver you to your doorstep. It costs around HUF 2,300 a person. If you are alone, this is the best price you will get into downtown Budapest.
Then there are the other taxi companies which you do not see at the terminal because of the Tourist taxis who literally took over the airport. These more reasonable taxis wait outside the airport, about 300 m away. When you are leaving the airport, you will be able to see them on your left.
You need to call these taxis on the phone and they will be there within 2-3 minutes. The major problem is that you need to speak Hungarian because they have not thought of hiring an English speaking dispatcher.
Now we can book you an airport pickup and a taxi for you in advance for EUR 21 (or the equivalent in HUF). The price is the same up to 4 people. This includes 1) a person waiting for you at the airport with a sign with your name on it and 2) a transfer directly to the city centre. Minimum hassle, maximum efficiency.
To book a taxi, please email or call us with the following information:
1. Name (one is enough)
We will book the driver and send you a confirmation. When you arrive, you will be met with a sign and taken to the downtown area of Budapest.
