We will be providing transportation for students and the faculty only. If you have missed your pickup, or are on your own, you could follow these directions:

From the airport, take a Minicab (actually a minibus). These charge a fixed fare between any two addresses in greater Budapest. You want to go to Déli Station, which should take about half an hour. There are reasonably frequent trains ( from Budapest Déli to Balatonfüred at fares which are simply cheap (about 8- EUR). Journey times vary but three hours is a good average. Please use caution and avoid taking a ride with strangers offering transfers from the BUD airport. Use either the shared shuttle (Airport Minibus) or the officially appointed cab company to service the airport (Főtaxi). There are also many private companies offering pre-booked limousines.

The bus station in Balatonfüred is a few yards from the railway station and there are regular buses to Tihany at even cheaper fares! The bus stops right in front of the holiday resort “Club Tihany”, where the water sport base is situated in. If you want, you can combine your transfer with a guided sightseeing tour. If you want, you can hire a taxi at this point they are cheap.
