Minibus Service

All terminals of the Budapest Ferihegy Airport have an excellent, reliable, reasonably priced, door-to-door minibus service. Please look for the Airport Minibus Service desk in the airport lobby. They will drive you to your hotel for HUF 2,490 (return ticket HUF 4,390). The Minibus Service only accepts Hungarian currency or major international credit cards.

Please make sure you have some Hungarian currency to get transportation tickets or to be able to pay for the Airport Minibus upon arrival. (You can change money at several places at the airport as well.)

For more information please check the Minibus website.


Airport Taxi

It is more economical to share a taxi than taking the minibus if several participants arrive on the same flight and are accommodated in the same hotel. Click here to read more about the Airport taxi.
