Best tips & tricks

Before you leave the airport: pick-up a free map at the Info Desk. They are also helpful with answering questions.

Looking for a cheap shop to buy a quick snack or bottle of water? There is a SPAR on the ground floor.

Quickest bus to the city center: AirportBus 100 E (950 HUF). The 200E is slower and has many stops.

When taking a taxi: ask for their fixed price to the city center. You will pay +/- 8045 HUF (26€) for +/- 35 minutes.

Time difference: in Summer -1 hour, in Winter -2 hours

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...
