Budapest Airport taxi service is available at the taxi stand. Zóna Taxi have a fixed price from the Budapest Airport, but to the airport they use the meter. Zóna Taxi is great from the Budapest Airport but to the airport there is no difference between Zóna Taxi and the other taxi companies.


A general rule in Budapest, it is always cheaper to call a taxi through a call centre than catch one on the street. Always ensure the taxi has a fixed sign on top and there is writing on the side indicating that it is a taxi as there are some pirate taxis that operate in the city.

Arrive or depart stress-free at the Budapest Airport by pre-booking your private Budapest Airport transfer.
