Excellent personalised service

My partner and I travelled from Vienna to Budapest via Bratislava and Gyor in February 2020 with Ladsislav who had stepped in at the last minute for another driver and I've been meaning to leave this review ever since. It was a really good way to travel between cities and Ladislav was brilliant, really personable and with great knowledge of the route and the places we visited which made the trip. We even decided against a planned local tour in Bratislava as Ladislav was able to give us a personalised version. Would definitely recommend and would look to use Daytrip again, if we're ever able to travel freely again that is!

Vienna to Budapest via Bratislava

We traveled from Vienna to Budapest with stops in Bratislava and a scenic monastery in Hungary. We traveled in a large Tesla that was comfortable, fast and quiet. Our driver, Gabor was wonderful, making at least one extra stop to help us get a souvenir that we wanted. His English was impeccable and he was very friendly kind and accommodating. At the end of our trip we used him for our airport transfer to Budapest airport. Perhaps best of all, no slogging luggage to a train station or airport, no worrying about seats or overhead baggage space. The service is hotel to hotel and could not be more convenient. We are planning another trip to Prague and Berlin and will most definitely use the daytrip service between the two cities. Highly highly recommended!!

Thumbs Up👍

It was our first time to try Daytrip. I read good reviews about the company so I tried using it for our trip from Vienna to Budapest with a side trip to Parndorf Outlet Store. We were very happy with our ride. Zoltan Szalai was punctual, a safe driver, accommodating, helpful, and patient. I highly recommend Daytrip. My family will definitely take Daytrip again on our future trips to Europe. 👍

Great private transfer from Vienna to Budapest!

There were 5 of us and the day before we had to leave I reached out to DayTrip and they were able to accommodate our trip quickly and with great customer service. The trip was quick and so nice to be able to get door to door for a reasonable price. Could not recommend more!

The Daytrip driver advantage

Daytrip driver
  • Local knowledge about the route from Vienna to Budapest
    Including available sights
  • English speaking

    All our drivers speak English as well as their native language (and sometimes additional languages too!). They're happy to discuss local history and culture with you, and answer any questions you may have. And because they speak the local language, they're able to provide you with a unique opportunity to connect with natives.

  • Safety first!

    We screen all our drivers for criminal and traffic records, and personally interview each one. We also inspect their cars for safety, comfort, and reliability. All cars must be less than ten years old, in excellent operating condition, and insured as required by local law. And because our drivers are locals, they're familiar with the rules and customs of the road.
