At the end of the month of August we are a five-person household (2 grown-ups, 3 girls) that visits Budapest. The article I was reading about getting cabs from outside the terminal. However, if I travel with our subsidiaries, I would rather book a taxi to see us and pick us up on our way back. We' ll be at the Corinthia Hotel. Sincerely yours and thank you for taking the trouble to review my article.
You do not have to deal with the raffle of collecting a taxi in front of the taxi rank. FoTaxi is the official licensed taxi company and has a newsstand in the arrival area. Simply go to the newsstand and tell them where you're going and you'll be gone in no time. Sure.
City Taxi is another highly recommend city taxi service I have used several time. When you choose City, it would be necessary to make a reservation in advance, but not necessary with Fo. For your information, City Taxi is NOT allowed to collect you from the airports. Ferihegy is the only taxi operator authorised to take you to your final destinations.
Speaking for myself, I prefer to take downtown taxi for travel within the town. Keep in mind that in Budapest taxi cabs drive at a set fare - 450 HUF/base and 280 HUF/km - never get into a taxi without a clear label with BKK on it and the fare indicated on it. Taxi and any other taxi service is permitted and accepts taxi users on a day-to-day basis.
And I know how to use City Taxi every single day I arrive (and depart) and travel for years. Last I used City Taxi at the terminal was Monday. Best of all, City Taxi "preferred not to collect me a few places from the airport", but that was about the period when they were superseded by FoTaxi as the formal firm.
When I am taken off, I always use City Taxi, as they are my favourite and usually less expensive, as in my own personal opinion the driver is less likely to take you on a tour/longer itinerary. In fact, the City Taxi was never the "official" business at the airports - the first such agreement included a specially constructed firm named Zona, which was expelled and substituted by Fo Taxi, which was tantamount to a coup d'état (which had little to no effect on anything for the passengers except the name on the side of the taxi and the identities of the pilots in the fleet).
Formal " means that they have an exclusivity agreement with the airports and are paying the airports a considerable charge and, I believe, a provision for each trip. On the other hand, the aerodrome does everything it can to direct passenger traffic to Fo only, including restricting (but not eliminating) kerb edge traffic and non-Fo taxi parking. However, the aerodrome is not a taxi stop.
However, then someone showed up with a longer tape of the whole deal, revealing that the "passenger" was a facility from the airfield, and the "escape" was actually the act of taking the pockets from the arrival area to the chosen taxi. However, Fo does the work well and reliable, and if you want a taxi, it's just as good a option as any other.
Riders are paying Fo for the Privileg and Fo for the Flughafen, so their cost is higher, but their counters run just as fast as any other taxi. You will only be assigned this 5-10-minute windows 2 x per diurn. Briefly, the aerodrome makes it very difficult to collect people at the gates.
Well, I also like city taxis. Generally, I take Fo on arrival and back to the international airports with City. The costs are about 6500 HUF per taxi.
