How to get these magical tickets when you arrive to the Budapest Airport?

First of all you will have to exchange money. We still use Hungarian Forint it seems for a few more years we wont introduce Euro. To exchange money you will find places at the airport but their rates are usually not the best. You will get better rates in the city, so if its nessecary just exchange a little amount there at the airport.
Other way is to use ATM which you will find at the airport too and at 100000000 places in the city. We remind you that Budapest is a "cash" city paying with credit cards is possible at some places only.

If you have forint you can buy tickets from the ticket automat in front of the airport. If its work...if it accepts banknotes. If not you can buy tickets at the driver too. A bit more expensive but less trouble.

Spite of the fact that among Hungarians is a habit to ride the public transportation without tickets, we do not advice you to do this. Controllers are usually hunting for foreigners since they are scared of them and feel embarassed even if its not their fault that they couldnt get ticket or they wasnt smart enough to find out the sophisticated rules of the public transportation company.


Our opinion:
About using the public transport from airport in Budapest:
Its definitely the most economical solution and perfect way to get a real impression of Hungary and seeing the local people and the local sights. The area of the airport..hmm...let's say, not really touristic...since you have to cross the suburbs but even if ugly its not dangerous. To get the ticket is not that easy from the airport especially if you still don't have the local currency but for bravehearts, we definitely suggest the public transportation!
