Arrival in Budapest - transfer from the airport & railway

Most participants will arrive at the Budapest Ferihegy Airport. The simplest means of transportation to any place in Budapest is via the Airport Minibus service. This door-to-door Airport Minibus Service is reasonably priced (one way ticket: HUF 2990, return ticket HUF 4990). The minibus service is located outside of customs area transfer can be booked there. Travellers will purchase a voucher and proceed to the waiting area for your van to arrive. The wait is generally 10-20 minutes. Those who schedule round-trip transportation must call to re-confirm their return trip at least 24 hours in advance of their flight.

A bit more expensive but prompt transfer service is provided by Főtaxi the official taxi service of Ferihegy airport. The price of a one way transfer is between HUF 5100 / 17 EUR and HUF 5700 / 20 EUR depending on the distance. The booth of Főtaxi is in front of the arrival terminal, outside of the building. Other taxi companies are also available at the airport but they tend to charge more for foreigners. Főtaxi works with fixed prices. More information can be found on the airport's website.
