Do NOT exchange money at the airport! Or if you need to, exchange only 10-15 euro for the airport bus, no more. The exchange rate is bad and has a high hidded fixed cost.

Do NOT leave your baggage alone! If not stolen, they will take it away for security reasons.

Watch out for thieves when you have lunch or wait at the airport. It happens, so take care of your belongings!

Do NOT use a “Freelancer” taxi. These are unofficial and expensive. “Taxi” table/label is NOT enough, it has to be a name/brand, like Főtaxi, City Taxi, Bolt etc...
