Budapest Airport Terminal 1 – newest parking lot in town!

Just a few months after Budapest Airport terminal 1 closed down due to lack in passengers it is about to reopen as a parking lot for people wanting to leave their car outside the centre of Budapest and keep traveling with train from there. This is an ideal solution as the new Ferihegy train station opened some years ago, and it can serve as an easier way to get to the city center, instead of bringing the car all the way.

The fee for parking here is supposed to be around 500 HUF per hour if you park from 0-12 hours. The monthly ticket for parking here, much more interesting for people who would like to use this on a daily basis is to cost 12,000 HUF.

Is it a ticket to use public transport for 2 days valid for the whole family?

No, there are no 48-hour tickets available. The only option is the 48-hour Budapest Card, but that costs 10,000 HUF almost and you need to visit a lot of museums for this to be worth the price. You could consider the “csoportos 24 órás jegy“, or as it would be in English: “Group ticket for 24 hours“. This can be used for up to 5 persons travelling together all the time, in the same wagon. The price is 3100 HUF and is worth using for families and larger groups traveling together. IF you are three persons, then the price for two such cards would be only 6200 HUF, compared to three persons buying the Budapest Card would cost 30,000 HUF.

You can buy this tickets described here at the larger metro stations around in Budapest.

You could consider the 72 hour ticket if you stay for three days which costs 3850 HUF per person.
