What's the fastest way to go from Timisoara to Budapest?

Hello there!

I'm planning to visit Timisoara soon and then I want to go to Budapest but I was wondering if there are high speed trains or something. I found trains that take about 5h and maybe theres's a faster way, I don't know.

Hope you can help me. Thank you. :)

The fastest way is to fly Budapest-Bucharest-Timisoara.

By land it doesn't get much faster than 5 hours.

Also try finding some buses here: www.autogari.ro/Transport/Timisoara-Budapest

Or use BlaBlaCar.

Train is the best and most reliable option. There are additional trains from Arad

Hi,

Ik was wondering the same thing until yesterday, however I decided to purchase some one-way train tickets from Timisoara Nord to Budapest.

Though now we seem to have a problem, as the Hungarian train company does not give out E-tickets or something similar, but it requires you to pick up the tickets at a machine at the station.

This is a problem, since it seems that all those machines are only at Hungarian stations, so not in Timisoara.

Could anyone verify that this is the case and maybe tell me what to do with my tickets now?

Hope anyone can help me with an answer to this problem :)

Thanks in advance.

Yes, that is correct. If the site does not have a cancellation option, the only solution would be to ask them if you could get a refund once you get to a Hungary station and buy another ticket from Timisoara

Around €25 in 2nd class and €39 in 1st class.

There's also a limited number of discounted 2nd class tickets at €15.

Hi, Thank you so much for letting me know. Is it possible to buy tickets online in advance? If not, where can they be purchased in Romania? (We will be in Romania for 6 days, travelling from Iasi to Timisoara). Do you know how/where it is possible to get the discounted tickets? And is there a cheaper rate for children? I really appreciate your advice.
