Transfer prices are quoted per vehicle for a whole group to any location or hotel in Budapest, including possible taxes and toll fees. Prices for a larger bus that can accommodate twenty or more passengers are available on request.
Transfers from Prague to Budapest or vice versa can be combined with a recommended visit to Vienna or Bratislava. Both cities lie on the way. You can choose either to travel via Vienna or Bratislava and stop there for a short visit to the city or just a lunch etc. The price will be slightly higher because a waiting fee will be added. If you are ok with a small detour, not too far off the road are other interesting places like Český Krumlov, Tábor, Telč, Melk, Linz, and Třeboň.
We Offer Three Types of Fares
One way – our standard charge.
Same day return – You’ll pay only a one-way fare plus a waiting charge, so your return leg is free. This is your cheapest option if you’re travelling to and from the same destination on the same day.
Any day return – multiply the one-way charge by two.
Waiting Fee Charge
If you require waiting or a multi-stop transfer, for example, you go to one city where we wait for you, and then you continue to somewhere else, we will add a waiting charge to your fare. Our waiting charges are as follows: 1-4 people: CZK 220 per hour; 5-8 people: CZK 280 per hour. For large groups, please do contact us. We do not charge this fee for short stops not exceeding 15 minutes.
You can save 10% from listed prices if you book and pre-pay a Superior Tour of Prague or Dinner on the river cruise. To be eligible for this promotion, you have to quote ‘Long Distance Transport 10% discount’ when making your booking (or email us). Bookings must be paid at least 24 hrs prior to your pickup or tour date. A standard cancellation policy applies.
Free Minibus Upgrade
Some airport taxis will only take up to three passengers and might not be able to store your large bags in their sedan vehicle. With Prague Airport Transfers, we will accommodate groups of up to four passengers and your luggage in a bigger vehicle for no extra charge. To request this service, simply choose “Minivan/Minibus free upgrade” on your booking form. For groups of five or more persons, this offer does not apply and only the minibus at standard price is available.

FAQ: Prague to Budapest Transfers
Yes, all our drivers speak English and the native Czech language and sometimes additional languages too. They're happy to discuss local culture with you, provide useful local knowledge about places of interest, and answer any questions you may have.
If you fly to Europe in a group of three to six passengers for longer and are certainly planning to have more baggage, we recommend booking our minivan. For groups of up to two passengers with big bags or three passengers with mid-size bags, a sedan car will be a better option as you will benefit from a more comfortable ride. If you are unsure which vehicle will be the best choice, please do contact us with your details and our support team will give their best suggestions.
Yes, we are very happy to do quick stops along the way at no extra charge. If you require a longer stop, for example, to explore Vienna or Bratislava for a few hours, we will charge just a small waiting fee.
Yes, we provide transfers between both cities and in both directions. But if you are booking a transfer that does not originate in Prague, the booking must be paid in advance.
If you let us know in advance, we will send a spacious minivan instead of a sedan vehicle. The price will not be increased (you will only pay the sedan price).
We assign our best and most reliable drivers for long-distance transfers, especially when it comes to communications skills, driving safety record, zero complaints, and local knowledge. We always screen all our drivers for criminal and traffic records, and personally inspect cars on a daily basis. All cars must be less than five years old, in excellent operating condition, and insured as required by local law. We believe that providing a safer, more relaxing experience is essential, especially for longer trips.
It depends on the number of passengers travelling. If you are booking a trip for one or two people, the train or bus definitely works out much cheaper. If four persons are travelling, then the price is about the same travelling by bus or train. Generally, for larger groups, it might be cheaper to travel by private transfer.
Our transfers are provided with new and comfortable vehicles. But the most significant benefit is the travel time, which is much shorter than the regular bus or train connection. The same transport takes over 7hrs by train (in addition to likely delays), 7.5hrs by bus, and less than 5hrs by our comfortable minibus. Plus, you need time and another form of transport to get to and from your address or hotel to your final destination by bus or train. There are no other stops on the way with our door-to-door transport unless you ask us to do so (for toilet, lunch, sightseeing, etc.). If you travel by train or bus, you will also have to add costs for getting to and from the train or station from your hotel.
Private transfers are the quickest way of getting from Prague to Budapest. It takes around 5hrs. If travelling by train or by bus at the journey time will be at least 7.5hrs.
Yes, by law baby seats are required. For your baby’s safety, we will provide them free of charge.
Yes, our driver will gladly help you with that or any other questions you might have.
Certainly – please contact us for an exact price quote.
Unfortunately, we do not operate such a service for transport outside of Prague. You might wish to consider using the train or bus instead. We can arrange transport from the airport to the train or bus station, and we can advise on the best transport available.
Unfortunately, we cannot provide discounts unless you find a lower price from a reliable company for the same service we offer. We believe that our prices are already very competitive.
You can change your itinerary free of charge until 24 hours before departure if the transfer starts outside of Prague. For transfers starting from Prague, there is no problem to make a last-minute change even less than 24 hours before departure, and there won’t be any extra charge.
We use either a sedan car (comparable to a Volkswagen Passat/Škoda Superb) or a van (comparable to Volkswagen Transporter/Mercedes Vito) for up to four passengers. We also use a van for groups of up to eight passengers. For larger groups, we can either use a combination of vehicles or larger minibuses (like a Mercedes Sprinter). Depending on availability, you may be upgraded to a better class free of charge for better comfort. The maximum age of cars is five years, but on average, our fleet is two years old. If you require a particular model, please provide a note during the booking process, and we will do our best to meet your expectations. For more details, please check our fleet section for available cars; we use only those brands which are listed in that section.
