Coach Hire & Bus Rentals For Every Occassion
One of the largest cities in the European Union, Budapest is the capital city of Hungary and home to around 1.8 million people. Covering an area of 525 square kilometres, it straddles both banks of the River Danube, with the Buda Hills to the west and the Great Plain to the east.
There’s plenty to keep travellers happy here, from architecture ranging from medieval to Art Nouveau to thermal baths, dinner cruises on the Danube and there’s even caving and other outdoor adventures up in the Buda hills.
Most travellers arrive in Budapest via the Franz Liszt International Airport, which is still sometimes called by its old name Ferihegy.
As the airport is around 16 kilometres or 10 miles southeast of the city centre, book airport transfers in Budapest via RentABus.com if you want to get into the city with the least amount of fuss.
One thing you will notice about Budapest is the sheer number of bridges, hardly surprising given that the city is split in two by the Danube. For starters, there’s the Árpád Bridge, linking to Northern Margaret Island, which at 973 metres long is the longest bridge in Budapest.
The Chain Bridge is the oldest and most beautiful bridge, while Elisabeth Bridge is one of the most modern in the city. The Liberty Bridge has been rebuilt in Art nouveau style while the Rákóczi Bridge is the newest bridge in Budapest.
The fact that the Royal Palace has been razed to the ground and rebuilt many times over its history just makes this magnificent residence all the more intriguing. Today it’s home to two museums, the Hungarian National Gallery and the Castle Museum, together with the National Széchenyi Library.
Just a short distance from Deák Ferenc tér, the tree-lined parade of Andrássy út stretches for almost 2.5 kilometres and ends at Heroes’ Square.
Along the way you’ll get to see the Hungarian State Opera House, one of the city’s most beautiful buildings; the New Theatre, Művész Kávéház, the House of Terror, the former headquarters of the secret police, and the beautiful Kodály körönd with its wonderful old buildings and statues.
If you’re eager to do some shopping while you’re here, Váci Utca is Budapest’s premier shopping street, and is full of the kind of shops and restaurants you’ll find in any major European capital.
Whatever you plan to do while you’re in town, as Budapest is such a huge place, it makes sense to have one of the most reliable minibus hire companies in Budapest on hand to whisk you wherever you need to go in the city.

There’s no better way to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the city than by visiting Memento Park. Home to over 40 statues, busts and plaques dedicated to the Socialist regime, together with such novelties as a replica of Stalin’s boots and an exhibition centre containing all kinds of things from the socialist era, it’s a place to contemplate the city’s history.
As the park is 10 kilometres out of the city centre, hiring a minibus in Budapest via RentABus.com will ensure that you get there quickly.
There’s an abundance of hot springs in Budapest, so ‘taking the waters’ is a must-do experience for all visitors to the city. You’ll find many different types of bathhouses, from modern spas to traditional Turkish baths.
While riding one of the rickety trolleybuses is no doubt a highlight of any visit to the city, if you want to get home safely after a night out, booking reliable minibus hire in Budapest is the best way to go.
