How to get to the city centre from the airport?

By public transport: take the bus nr. 200E that will take you to Kõbánya-Kispest metro stop, which is the terminal of the blue metro line (M3). From there you need to travel e.g. to Deak ter which is the 10th stop. 2 tickets each (one for the bus and one for the metro), that costs 290 HUF/ticket (~1 EUR). The travelling time to the city centre is 50-60 minutes from Terminal 2 and around  35-45 minutes from Terminal 1.

Budapest Airport Minibus:  the minibus is a door-to-door shuttle service that collects travellers going to the same part of the city and drops them one-by-one. The price is 2990 HUF/person (~10 EUR) for one way, 4990 HUF/person (~17 EUR) return. Their desk is at the arrivals at the airport. Be prepared to queue up in peak airport hours.
By train: unfortunately there is no train appointed for transfers between the airport terminals and the city center. However short distance trains stop next to Terminal 1 and you can get to Nyugati pu. within 20 minutes (Western Railway Station). Trains do not run very frequently, you can inquire about the schedule at the airport information desk.

By individual transfer: several companies offer door-to-door shuttle service on fixed rates. They must be ordered in advance by e-mail or over the phone. The advantage is that they do not drop passengers one-by-one, like the minibus and they pick you up with a nameboard. The price is between usually around 25-30 EUR for 1-4 persons or 35-40 for 5-8 persons.
Taxi companies: you can sit into a taxi at the airport, there is one taxi company that resides at the airport, their fare is 16-20 EUR/taxi depending on the destination. You can also call a taxi over the phone and ask for an airport fare, this may be cheaper, but not necessarily.
