We just heard that today Austria has closed the border for trains from Hungary. We originally planned to leave Keleti station to Bratislava on the 23rd, then take the train from Bratislava to Vienna the next day.
So, if border is closed to trains, does anyone know if buses and shuttles are also being blocked? Someone recommended the high-speed hyrdofoil (and pricey - 79 euros each) as it is still running, but only on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and of course we are leaving Budapest on Wednesday.
Flying seems to take all day, requires a transfer, and is at least 3 times the cost of a hydrofoil...
Does anyone know of car hire service they can recommend? We are three adults - and that might be our best best - assuming that the border is open...
Any other suggestions?
