This page is a guide only. The page contains recommendations from either TMs, Referees or Parents from previous seasons.  Venues or official hotels may change for the current season so we recommend that you check the reglement’s before confirming any travel arrangements and if you are booking hotels before the reglement is out we advise you may want to consider booking with free cancellation as it is not guaranteed that competition details will stay the same.

There are a good range of flights to Budapest Airport from airports across the UK.

The organisers offer a shuttle service which is one of the more expensive options to use (and therefore best for solo travellers arriving late).

Budapest has an effective, cheap and easy-to-use public transport system.

The other options from the airport are

  • the 100E bus to Astoria metro which is 3 stops to the venue.
  • an airport shuttle bus which is a mini bus service which will take a group of people and make a number of stops to drop them off. This can be booked on arrival.
  • App bookable taxis
  • Airport taxis (most expensive)


The App to use is BudapestGo to plan journeys.

Bolt is the app for taxi bookings service.
