Can anyone tell me what the taxi fare would be from BUD to the Hilton Budapest City? Do the taxis perhaps have a fixed rate?

How about Taxify? Do they do airport pickups? Anybody know how much they charge for same route?

Thanks in advance.

According to the Hilton website, the hotel is 12 miles from the airport, it would take 30 min drive, and a taxi ride would cost 40 Euros.

We have used a private transfer a couple of times - and it worked well. There are more options now than there were when we last went, but most will give you a quote ahead of time - and will wait for you if your flight is late arriving.

Not too much of a concern during the day, but nice to have someone waiting if your arrival is late at night.

Hi Fran, would you be willing to share the contact information for the transportation company you've used? As you stated, it might be nice to have that arranged ahead of time, just in case flights go sideways.

Thank you, in advance.

Hi -

This is who we have used.

[url]http://www.budapestairporttaxi.com/Welcome.html[/url]

Just e-mail him - he is quite responsive. If he isn't able to pick you up himself, he will have a colleague pick you up. We have had his wife drive us once, as well as a colleague on one visit (we use him if we don't have an included transfer... our 4th visit to Budapest coming up next month....).

There is a cabstand, go there tell them where you are going. They will give you a slip of paper with which cab to take and the regulated price to pay. Don’t use any of the cabs waiting without going to cabstand.

We also used him last fall - he was very responsive via email and easy transfer. If I remember I believe it was a flat 30 euros. Even had a nice commentary as we drove into the city.
