Taxis can be an easy and reliable way to get around Budapest

The central Budapest downtown is much smaller and easier to get around by taxi than many other capital cities, like London and Paris. This means that Budapest taxis are not necessarily expensive, in fact if there are 3 or 4 of you traveling it may be cheaper than buying public transport tickets. Also not speaking Hungarian doesn’t have to stop you ordering a taxi as several companies provide English speaking telephonists or online ordering in advance of your trip.
