We are going to Budapest for 4 days in August. I have read various ways of getting public transport from the airport to the metro system, but what would you advise is the best? I have read that taxis can be dodgy for foreigners and expensive, and instructions of which buses and trains to get are slightly confusing!
Also I will be going on my own to Kecskemet on one day to their airshow and have looked into pre-booking tickets. Again Ive found this very confusing - one place says that a new peak time system renders it impossible for me to pre-book train tickets? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. My other option is to simply buy tickets at the time - but how easy is this? Do ticket machines have an English as well as Hungarian option? I will need to be getting the 5:50am train so it's going to be a long day!
Many thanks for any help
