Airport transfer

We highly recommend you to check the relevant information on the website of Budapest Airport. Non-regulated taxi service providers should be avoided. The best option to your accommodation is probably taking either a licensed taxi or the miniBUD shuttle. The airport shuttle bus run by the public transport company is a cheaper and reasonable option if you travel directly to OR-ZSE (change at Kálvin tér for underground line M4).
