Budapest Ferihegy Airport Guide

Car Hire

Budapest Airport is located just less than 10 miles from the centre of Hungary's capital and is the nation’s largest air hub. The amount of car hire companies operative here and the short distance to the city centre means self-drivers won't run into any problems during their time in Hungary.

Who to Book With
Companies such as Avis, Buchbinder Rent-a-Car, Budget, Europcar, Hertz and Sixt have desks at Budapest Airport. The majority of these companies have desks in the bud:skycourt area of the terminal.

Need to Know Essentials
You will need to show the following documents at vehicle collection:

- British driver’s licence (both parts)
- Credit card used for the reservation
- Utility bill to confirm your ID
- Confirmation of booking, if already made

For more info read our FAQ's.

Apart from during the summer holidays, Budapest is notorious for its heavy traffic, which is particularly bad during mornings and afternoons. Navigating the city requires forward planning or some sort of knowledge of the capital as it is against the law to turn left at the majority of the Great Boulevard's crossings. Elsewhere around the country, most highways consist of just two lanes and expressways are toll roads. Outside cities, headlights must be turned on at all times – even during the day.

See our guide to Hungary for more information on driving here.


Passengers need only travel around 10 miles to reach Budapest Airport from the city centre via Route 4. Other transport options for those without their own vehicle include taxis, minibuses, trains and buses, all of which are reasonably priced and drop travellers off or pick them up directly outside terminals 1 and 2.

The train station is located at Terminal 1 and there are 110 trains per day to the city centre (journey time: 30 minutes) and other destinations in Hungary. At weekends, service is lessened to 89 trains per day. Mav-Start is the main provider of rail transport and can be contacted on: +36 1 444 44 99.

Fototaxi is the main supplier of taxis to and from Budapest Airport, and is one of the biggest taxi companies in the country. The firm has booths at the exits of terminals 1, 2A and 2B. Fares are determined by the zone travelled to.

Taxi prices:
Budapest Airport to Buda is around £15
Budapest Airport to Pest is about £12

Several buses are available from Budapest Airport into the city. Among them are the number 93 that leaves from Terminal 1 and terminates at Kobanya-Kispest Metro Station, costing around £1 per person. The 200E is the main service at night and ends at Del-Peast bus depot; it also costs around £1 per person. The shared Airport-Shuttle Minibus is a door-to-door service that runs to destinations across Budapest 24 hours.


Budapest Airport is divided into Terminal 1, Terminal 2A and Terminal 2B. Between them, the terminals offer air transport to and from destinations around Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. Just fewer than nine million passengers are handled by the hub each year.

Parking is available next to Ferigegy in a park-and-ride format, while Terminal 2 has its own car park that plays host to over 2,500 spaces. Terminal 2's car park is divided into Premium Parking, Holiday Parking, Business Parking, Bus Parking and Holiday Plus Parking. Rates run from around £3 to £10 per day depending on which car par is used.

Wi-Fi is supplied by Telenor, T-Mobile and Budapest Airport but must be paid for. The Transit areas and Departures halls of each terminal are the best places to surf the web.

Information Services
There are information desks in the Arrivals halls of each terminal.

Useful Numbers
Budapest Airport: +36 1 296 7000

The requirements and needs of passengers must be specified at least 48 hours prior to arriving at Budapest Airport. Wheelchairs, crutches and similar equipment are provided free of charge, and special lifts means that travelling between the floors of any terminal is easy.

Restaurants and Bars
Big chains such as KFC and Burger King can be found in the terminals, alongside lesser-known establishments such as Flocafe, the Fruit Factory and Hippopotamus. Whether passengers require Asian cuisine from Yum Cha or just a light snack from Upper Crust, there is something for everyone at Budapest Airport. Bar Wings in Terminal 2B and Bill Bentley are two of the most popular places to consume alcoholic drinks such as beer and wine.

VIP Lounges

Terminal 1:
CELEBI – Platinum Service Lounge

Terminal 2:
MasterCard Lounge
SkyCourt Lounge
Executive Lounge

Money and ATMs
All terminals have sufficient ATMs and bureaux de change booths. Tourists are advised to use ATMs at the airport instead of the exchange booths in the city as the rates offered at the airport are lower.

Big names such as Swarovski, Relay, Hugo Boss and Montblanc are easy to find in Budapest Airport, as are smaller, lesser-known Hungarian firms such as Memories of Hungary. Passengers that wish to relax before flying can head to the Lian Thai Massage & Spa if they wish. Heinemann is the main duty-free force here and offers a wide array of tax-free goods.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?
