Hungary has a well constructed public transport outside Budapest, too that makes getting from one point of the country to the other quite easy.
You can travel around the country either by bus or train. With your student ID, you can also get a discount on the ticket prices.
Volánbusz Zrt. provides scheduled intercity and long-distance bus transport services at a national level while also providing local bus services in some municipalities.
MÁV Zrt. is the national railway company that operates railway networks for intercity and long-distance passenger transport.
After your arrival in Budapest, the first and most important task is getting to the city from Budapest Airport and luckily, there are several options students can choose from.
The cheapest option is to take public transport: BKK operates two different bus routes that connect the city centre with the Airport, bus 100E and bus 200E. Always check the latest updates about the airport transfer either on the website of BKK or the website of the Airport. Also, make sure to exchange currency at the airport as you can buy the tickets only in Hungarian Forints!
Should you wish to take a more comfortable way of travel, you can choose two, slightly more expensive methods:
