Prague to Budapest...and back

Wonderfully convenient door to door pick up and drop off. Had a great cross country tour visiting several castles and churches with our driver Marek's knowledge of the sites. Best part was getting to know Marek and learning about the Czech Republic culture through his life experience.

Excelente alternativa para moverse en Europa

Utilizamos Daytrip para nuestro viaje por Europa Central, tomamos un conductor en Munich quien nos llevo hasta Praga, luego otro de Praga a Budapest, en esa oportunidad hicimos una parada para conocer Bratislava y por ultimo de Budapest a Viena. Todos los conductores muy amables y serios y los vehículos en muy buen estado. Te recogen en el hotel y te llevan a hotel lo que lo hace más conveniente que el tren y al mismo o incluso mejor precio.

Private transfers Berlin-Prague and Prague-Budapest

My daughter and I recently did two daytrips: 1) Berlin-Prague with Michael P. and Prague to Budapest with Jan J. Both trips were terrific. The divers were professional, courteous, and helpful. The cars were large, clean, and comfortable. I have a mobility impairment and they were able to accommodate my collapsible rollator/transport chair. Before this holiday, I was unaware of the existence of your company. None of my friends or my travel agent had heard of it. I was very impressed with your service. It was easy to book the trips online and to customize the start times and length of each stop along the way. It was the perfect solution for me with my mobility problems and it was terrific to have the chance to stop and do some sightseeing along the way. I have recommended your service to my travel agent and am raving about it to all my friends. I love to travel, but I have recently developed medical problems that prevent me from travelling as independently as I could in the past. Thank you, Daytrip, for allowing me to regain my freedom!

The Only Way to Go

We used this Daytrip service twice on our European holiday - once from Berlin to Prague and once from Prague to Budapest - and I must say we were very impressed. It is the most efficient mechanism for travelling between cities in Europe - much better than flying or even the train. There was 5 of us, with a large amount of luggage (5 suitcases and say 10 pieces of hand luggage). We had a large, clean, comfortable, driver-owned and driver-cared for van on both occasions. Sure I had a little nap on the way. But I also sat up front with the driver and chatted to him and looked at the maps of the area that he gave me to peruse. Convenience is the key. No having to work out how to get to the airport or train station to/from our accommodation at either end; no having to get there early; no long queues and security checks (throw out your liquids; no bottled water allowed; take off your shoes and belt; take out your laptop; do I have to take my iPad out?; what about my duty free alcohol; etc). We also had food from the apartment we were leaving in one country that we wanted to take to our apartment in the next country - no problem. Will my luggage arrive on the same plane? Is my check-in luggage too heavy? Is my cabin bag too big or too heavy? I can't see my luggage from my train seat - I hope no one is stealing from it. These issues evaporate with Daytrip - your luggage is in the car/van with you! Big comfortable seats in the van - more room than a an economy plane or train seat; free bottled water, soft drink and sometimes even beer! And we got to stop off at another town for a tour on the way - Dresden and Bratislava respectively! As they say - change a day of travel into a day of sightseeing! And our drivers helped us in this regard with directions and maps or a guided walking tour and tips for lunch. The level of communication from Daytrip was great - Daytrip was very responsive to emails. This was not only at the outset when we booked and immediately before we were due to depart (who our driver was, etc), but also when we arrived at a new city and worked out the nuances of our new apartment accommodation (where the driver could park; landmarks to identify the apartment building; etc), we would email Daytrip to pass on the information to the driver and Daytrip would respond with confirmation. Both of our divers, Andrej from Berlin to Prague and Mihaly from Prague to Budapest, were fantastic. They were both there early to pick us up - no waiting around by us, wondering if they were really coming or could find the place (we were in non-descript apartment buildings, not hotels). They even helped carry our bags. Each telephoned our new hosts on arrival in the city so that the landlord was there on time to give us the key and to advise on the best place for the diver to park to unload our luggage (in the local language). One driver said he wouldn't leave until he knew we could get in. Booking on line in advance with a credit card was easy. This service was just so easy and non-stressful. I would always look at this mechanism when travelling between European cities and hope to never fly between cities say 8 hours drive apart again! I can't recommend this service highly enough!
