How to travel to Budapest?

Once choosing Budapest as your final destination to visit from Bratislava, there are several options how to travel there, but which one is the best? Bus, train or boat?

Do you want to enjoy your journey and have a nice experience?

Take a boat trip!

In the summer we definitely suggest you a boat trip! It is a beautiful trip including a chance to spend a day in Hungary’s capital. Boat transport starts to operate in April till October.

What is cheaper? Bus or train?

There is not a significant difference between the prices of bus and train tickets. If you buy the tickets in advance you have no problems with them being sold out There is a big advantage with the bus transport - you can buy tickets online, which is not possible with trains.

Free luggage, oversize luggage or a lot of luggage?

Take a train!

There is neither size nor quantity limit of luggage you want to transport. So take all the luggage you want with a train. But keep in mind that you need pay for carrying a bicycle.

Wifi, magazines and drinks on aboard?

Take a bus!

Most of the bus companies provide free wifi, magazines and hot drinks or water on aboard in order to make your journey more comfortable.

You put a link to timetable for trains from Budapest to Bratislava, but when clicking only info is that there is a shuttle every 2 hours. What about the timetable?.
