I am having a tough time navigating the MAV website trying to find prices for trains from the main Budapest station to Pecs on September 11th and hoping one of you can help me. I do know that we could not book any tickets until 90 days out but I am just trying to find out how often trains go from Budapest to Pecs AND what the costs might be. Ideally we would like to take the quickest train, 07:45 train leaving from Budapest arriving in Pecs at 10:41, but the fare in English pounds was 5,475 which is equivalent to USD 9,051.82!! Hardly possible of course - or should it be English pounds 5.475 which is only USD9? That conversely seems way too low!
Another question - which is the "main" station in Budapest? On the website, I see trains going from the Budapest South and East stations - which one is considered to be the central station?
Plus, when I translate the MAV page to English, the info about the 07:55 to 10:41 Budapest to Pecs train suddenly says Budapest to BOURNEMOUTH, a seaside town in England, and not Pecs. I am totally confused!
I am certainly open to taking a bus form Budapest to Pecs - is there anything like the Student Agency Bus going from Budapest to Pecs that you know of?
With sincere thanks for any assistance you can provide.
