Book your Prague to Budapest train tickets right here

EuroCity Metropolitan and Hungaria trains transport you comfortably from city centre to city centre in six and a half hours. There is a departure every two hours throughout the day and every ticket we sell is direct, without changes or stopovers.

Our service is based on 100% e-ticketing, so you will not need to wait weeks for postal delivery of tickets, queue for a ticket machine or stand in line at the station ticket office. You can breeze directly onto the train!

On board we have you covered with reserved seating at no extra cost so you can be assured of sitting together. You can add up to five passengers to one ticket. If there are more than five people are travelling, just split them across two or more tickets or contact us about group travel.

Every carriage is air-conditioned and has 230 volt power sockets for your personal electronics. There is also a restaurant car serving drinks, snacks and hot food and a trolley service that delivers direct to your seat.

If you want to book more than two months ahead register your details here for our free ticket alert service.
