Taxi from Budapest Airport 

The official taxi at Budapest Airport is Fotaxi. It is a reliable service, however, you need to make a taxi reservation at special booths at Terminals 2A and 2B. If it is your first visit to Budapest, it might be difficult to understand right away upon arrival where to find them.

In high season, the line to the booth may be very long and if you are traveling with children or are in a hurry, you will not want to waste so much time waiting for your turn. 

In 2016, Uber stopped operating in Budapest and is not available in the city anymore. There may be individuals walking around the taxi ranks and offering private taxi services but it is not recommended to travel with them as safety is not guaranteed in this case.

The taxi prices are regulated by the government: there is a fixed tariff of 300 HUF/Km (0.95 EUR/Km) added to the basic fee of 700 HUF (2.2 EUR). There is also an extra fee for waiting, whereas, at Kiwitaxi, one hour of waiting is free. A trip to the city center will cost around 26 EUR depending on traffic conditions. In the absence of traffic, this journey will take about 30 minutes.  

There is also the official airport shuttle service miniBUD at Budapest Airport. Its price depends on the city zone you need to get to: the further, the more expensive. Kiwitaxi transfers have a fixed price which is the same for any point within the city limits.
