Hi marvic bartolo,

that differs: trains are always for the same price and departs every few hours, you can check it here. On the other hand the price for buses may differ, for example they might be cheaper early in the morning you can check the timetables & also buy the tickets directly at our site here https://bratislava-slovakia.eu/travel/budapest-bratislava/bratislava-budapest-bus . That being said, both options are roughly equal, though buses are bit cheaper on average.

Have a nice trip!

Samuel

Hi vali,

I'm afraid not. At the moment, the water level is so low, that Hydrofoil do not operate at all. I think there is only a little chance it will do so later this month.

Regards

Hi Ludmi,

this site says it's 11euros, I believe it's a little bit more (but not much). It's a pity you can't check this online.
