Eurolines Coach Bus from Budapest to Prague

Jump to last reply

I am planning a trip to Hungary and Czech btw Xmas and NYE and wanted to check on transportation options from Budapest to Prague.

I know there is a 6+ hours train with base price of 55 EURO. Not sure if I can get a cheaper deal in person as there seems to be no way to purchase advance online. The train will pretty much take up a whole day (seemed a waste of time riding trains).

Alternatively, Eurolines offer a 7 hour night bus departing at 10:15PM, arriving in Prague at 6AM. Their online one-way cost was around 22 USD after conversion. This plus savings from a night of hotel stay seems to be a much cheaper option (of course I'd have to put up w/ the night bus). Plus I don't waste day-time on transportation.

Seeking review/advice from anyone who has done the Eurolines night bus route from Budapest to Prague. Is it a safe, tolerable option?

My other question is should I be worried about train/bus schedules during the holiday season btw Xmas and the New Years. Is it a typical busy travel season for the locals?

Thanks much!
