Budapest Airport Minibus

The minibus is a door-to-door shuttle service that collects travellers going to the same part of the city and drops them one-by-one. The price is 2990 HUF/person (~10 EUR) for one way, 4990 HUF/person (~17 EUR) return. Their desk is at the arrivals at the airport. Be prepared to queue up in peak airport hours.

Several companies offer door-to-door shuttle service on fixed rates. They must be ordered in advance by e-mail or over the phone. The advantage is that they do not drop passengers one-by-one, like the minibus and they pick you up with a nameboard. The price is usually between 25-30 EUR for 1-4 persons or 35-40 for 5-8 persons.

Főtaxi, the taxi company with the longest traditions (founded 1913) in Hungary transports passengers between the terminals and Budapest. Taxi drivers speaking at least one foreign language are in service with large, category ‘A’ cars younger than five years. All cars are equipped with a POS terminal, therefore credit cards are also accepted.
Reservations can be made in person at the Főtaxi booths located at the exits at Terminals 2A and 2B. At the taxi rank in front of the stands, taxis are parking continuously waiting for passengers.

From 1 September 2013 a new Taxi Decree was introduced in Hungary regulating the price of the taxis at a fixed tariff of 280 HUF/Km (0.95 EUR/Km) in addition to the one-off basic fee of 450 HUF (1.50 EUR) and waiting fee. A ride to the city center should typically cost around 6500 HUF (22 EUR) depending on traffic conditions.

The ride from the airport to the Benczur Hotel costs around 7132 Ft. (21,5 km, approx. 30 min)

The ride from the airport to the nearest Kőbánya-Kispest metro stop costs around 4211 Ft. (12 km, approx. 12 min)
