transport to the airport

We will be 4 adults with luggage leaving the Marriott Budapest for the airport after a cruise. Do the cab companies have larger minibuses upon request? Looking for the best way to get to the airport.

any of the taxi companies will be ablest send a larger car/van if you specify it in advance; sometimes there is a small additional charge … Fo Taxi is fine, or City Taxi, or any of the major companies. If you ask your hotel to book the taxi, specify the company or driver that you want them to call; left to their own devices they may well call a more expensive car service. On the other hand, if it's an official taxi with the rates posted on the outside and a meter in use, it should be the same rate structure no matter what company.

Hey,

You can choose a taxi company, it can always help to give them a call in advance and ask for a bigger car and about the extra charges. Főtaxi is the official taxi group doing airporttransfers.

However, you can also go with the Airportshuttle, which is cheaper for sure yet somewhat slower as it picks up other people on the way. They are also an official airporttransfer provider.

The hotels reception should be able to order any of thoose, but you can call them yourself as well. For example my experince was that, when more than 1 person is travelling with the airportshuttle it was cheaper to pay at the airport than at the hotels reception.

Regards,

Pete

For taxis, if the hotel calls the company you specify the fare should be exactly the same whether they call or you do. For the Airport Shuttle, one way from the city to the airport, for four adults, will not be much different from the taxi fare, and indeed may be more costly. You can inquire on arrival at the shuttle desk … the taxi will likely cost around 7,000 Forints. When booked through your hotel, it's my impression that the hotel gets a commission and the fare is indeed higher.

airportshuttle.hu would be my answer.

With four adults and luggage, you are virtually assured the entire bus anyway. Good luck.

Booked online the shuttle quotes 6300 HUF for 4 people with normal luggage. Fo Taxi's fare calculator (which is an approximation and depends on traffic and delays, but is the standard metered rate for the door to door distance) is about 5300 Forints and accommodates up to 4 passengers with standard luggage.
