  • Eva May 18, 2019 at 8:08 pm

    Greetings.

    I have a question. I had already emailed you but no reply. Checked my Spam too.
    Upon arrival at the airport if it’s after 10 pm what do I put on address since I want to pick it up at the airport?
    Also is this safe? Meaning where exactly at the airport would we find our card “waiting”?

    • Budapest Cards May 20, 2019 at 7:50 am

      Dear Eva,
      thank you for contacting us here, as unfortunately we did not receive any emails from you.
      Unfortunately the online purchased Budapest Card cannot be picked up at the airport. Thank you for your understanding.

      • Eva May 20, 2019 at 9:15 am

        Thank you for your quick response. Just to make sure: is there a Budapest Junior Card for 120 hours (5 days) since on the website of the Budapest Card I can only see a Junior Card for 72 hours (3 days)?

        • Budapest Cards April 21, 2019 at 7:51 am

    Hi. I am coming with a friend at 31st of March till 7th of April. Which card suits us better for all our stay?
    Also we will stay at an airbnb appartment, so how can we receive the cards at the appartment and do we need to book the cardsin each our names or can we book both of them in one ?
    Thanks

    • Budapest Cards March 20, 2019 at 8:52 am

      Dear Michael,
      I would recommend you to choose a Budapest Card which is valid from Apr 1. The longest card available is the 120h one, this would cover 5 days of your stay.
      If you wish to have the Budapest Card delivered to a private apartment, please add your mobile phone number in the booking form, so that we can contact you about the delivery time. It is not necessary to book it to a certain name, you can book all cards at once.

      Hello Chiara,

      You can buy the cards there until 10pm, but taking into consideration that your plane might be late, I would suggest the online purchase, therefore your cards would be waiting for your when you check in.

    • Budapest Cards January 10, 2019 at 8:24 am

      Dear John,
      all Budapest Cards include lots of benefits, many of which are museums.
      Museums, not all, but most of them are typically closed on Mondays (so on Easter Mondays too). As you are staying over for the Easter weekend, there will be still lots of options to choose from, but some places will be closed.

    Hello! We are traveling with our 4 children ( Years 9, 7, 5 and 3 ). Do we have to buy more than 2 cards?

    • Budapest Cards November 6, 2018 at 8:49 am

      Dear Veronika,
      each Budapest Card is valid for 1 person only. As the main benefit (public transportation) is already free for children under 6, it’s not really necessary buy a card for the smaller kids. For the bigger children it is recommended, but you can decide according to the discount you can get.

    I am planning to go to Budapest in May this year. I’d like to find out if the free public transportation card access includes buses and trains to and in-between areas of Vác , Esztergom , Szentendre, Visegrád, Acquincum from Budapest?

    I apologize if this question is silly.

    • Budapest Cards January 28, 2018 at 9:13 am

      Dear Peter,
      the public transportation is free within the boundaries of Budapest only. Unfortunately you cannot travel free to other cities. Thank you for your understanding.

      • Peter January 31, 2018 at 11:42 am

        Hello,

        Noted. Thank you.

  • Martin January 8, 2018 at 9:53 pm

    Hello,
    I would like to know if the Budapest Card 120h provides free public transport for 120h as well? In all comments there were only 24h/48h/72h mentioned.
    Is it possible to use for direct bus from the airport (express/direct line 100E)?
    Price for both types (pre-paid and cash paid at the airport) is the same?
    Thanks for the answers.

    • Budapest Cards January 9, 2018 at 8:04 am

      Hello Martin,
      yes, of course, sorry that this information was somewhat hidden: indeed, the 120 hour Budapest Card provides free public transportation for the whole duration of your Budapest card within the city boundaries (not outside of Budapest, so for instance if you visit nearby towns like Godollo or Szentendre, the Budapest Card only gives a partial discount from the complete fee, up to the city boundaries).
      While the Budapest Card includes free public transportation, like bus 200E, the recently launched new ‘Shuttle Service’ (the 100E bus) is not considered to be part of the public transport as it is a specifically designed budget airport transfer shuttle (somewhat confusingly, offered by the Budapest Public Transport Company, but not defined as a public transport device).
      If you want to get a completely free transfer with your Budapest Card from the airport to the city centre or elsewhere, the most simple and relatively hassle free option if your accommodation is near a metro station, is to
      1, walk out of the airport building
      2, turn left and walk past the taxi rank
      3, walk ahead, skip the 100E bus (which costs approx. 3 Euros)
      4, wait for the 200E bus, get on with your Budapest Card
      5, get off at Kobanya Kispest metro station
      6, walk to the metro (M3) and get on your metro car (there are lifts at this station to facilitate those is need and also luggage rolling)

      The price of the Budapest Card (online and on the spot) is the same.
      And the Chairlift is included in the benefits, even though the Funicular in the Buda Castle is not.
      http://budacastlebudapest.com/funicular-buda-castle-district/

      • Martin January 10, 2018 at 5:47 am

        I’ve found a bit different information “To get to Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport, take the M3 metro and change at Kőbánya-Kispest terminus for bus No. 200E to reach Terminal 2. The Budapest Card is not valid on bus No.100E, the Chairlift or Buda Castle Funicular.”; source: budapestinfo.hu
        We are arriving on saturday afternoon and the direct connection 200E to Kőbánya-Kispest M3 will be probably closed.

        • Budapest Cards January 10, 2018 at 8:46 am

          Dear Martin,
          you are absolutely right, I apologise for not reading your comment attentively enough. Indeed, the bus 100E requires a special ticket, which can be purchased at the regular ticket machines or from the driver himself. The Budapest Card is not valid on this route unfortunately. Thank you for your understanding.

  • Midori January 4, 2018 at 10:47 am

    Hi! We are visiting Budapest from April 1-4, 2018. I saw that the price and the available (free) attractions may change at the end of March. When will you publish the new price/programs for 2018? Also, is it not possible to collect this card at the airport anymore even if I purchase it on-line? Thank you in advance.

    • Budapest Cards January 4, 2018 at 11:46 am

      Hello Midori,

      thank you for your comment.

      The new prices for 2018 will be published by the end of March, at the latest.

      I am afraid, airport pickup for the online purhcased Budapest Cards is not available anymore, but your cards can be delivered to your Budapest address at no cost.

      I hope I could be of help.

You specify the starting hour, which can be from 3 am to next day’s 3 am, or from 16:00 pm to next day’s 16:00 pm (e.g. from December 18, 21:00 pm to December 19, 21:00 pm). Once you write the starting hour on the 24 hour Budapest Card, it cannot be changed or corrected.
      2. I am afraid, you cannot buy Junior cards online.
      3. There is not, but if you purchase your card online, it will be delivered to your accommodation free of charge.

    Please, do not forget to print your voucher!”
    Where would the voucher be sent to? In my email there is only an invoice, or would that be considered the voucher?

    Thanks for your help

      Hello Pai,

      thank you for contacting us.
      I am afraid, I couldn’t find any valid booking in our booking system under your name or email address. Please contact the vendor you purchased your Budapest Card from, as the voucher will be exchanged to the actual Card. Please check your email for an email address or phone number if you bought a Budapest Card from a third party.
      I hope this helps. Have a great time in Budapest, Hungary!

  • Sid Mukherjee May 18, 2017 at 5:46 am

    Hi

    We would be arriving at the Népliget Bus station (from Vienna) around 10 am on June 3 (Sat) for a day trip. Can we buy the card online and pickup from a counter nearby? If so, where is the nearest counter ? When will the city walking trip start and from what point?

    Many Thanks, Sid

    • Budapest Cards May 18, 2017 at 12:23 pm

      Hello Sid,

  • Kimberley Khounsombath May 14, 2017 at 4:32 am

    Hi!

    I read that with the Budapest card, I can get discounts to certain tours….how can I get the discount when I check out as they only show the full price without an option of a Budacard holder discount on the Budapest by locals website.

    Thank you,

    • Budapest Cards May 14, 2017 at 9:46 am

      Hello Kimberley,
      No previous registration is needed for the free walking tours as these start every day at the announced time in every circumstances, one tour on the Buda side and the other tour on the Pest side. Usually hikes are 2–2.5 hours long with an English speaking tour guide. The tours run on national holidays and in rainy / snowy weather too. Just take the card with you when you turn up for a walking tour.

  • Nina May 6, 2017 at 6:20 pm

    I can’t seem to find an option to purchase the 120h option. I’ll be visiting Budapest for 5 days so this would be perfect..

    • Budapest Cards May 7, 2017 at 11:56 am

      Hello Nina,

      thank you for your comment.

      The 120h option becomes visible when you start completing the booking form, that is you first have to choose between the 2 card collection points.

      Then simply choose the 120h option on, for example, the following link:

      I hope I could be of help.

    • Budapest Cards February 27, 2017 at 2:48 pm

      Hello Giada,
      thank you for your inquiry. Most of the hotels don’t sell the Budapest Card, but if you purchase it online, you can request the delivery to any address in Budapest.

  • Anton February 21, 2017 at 6:31 am

    Good morning!
    I understand that the Budapest card is valid during the specific period of time.
    Is it the same with 2 walking tours which have to be used in 24, 48, 72 hrs depending on the card? Due to the time constraints I will have a short trip to Budapest this week (2 days ) and am going to buy 24 hours card. According to weather forecast this Friday is expected to be rainy… Could I use the card next day after expiry?
    Thank you.

    • Budapest Cards February 21, 2017 at 10:01 am

      Dear Anton,
      Unfortunately it is not possible to split the card duration. Once you have started using it, it will expire within 24, 48 or 72 hours.

  • Anton February 20, 2017 at 8:01 pm

    Good afternoon!
    The discounted prices to the Budapest sights (in addition to the free entries) are also available during 24, 48, 72 hrs period, aren’t they?
    Or can I get the discounted price after the card expires?
    Thank you.

    • Budapest Cards February 21, 2017 at 10:00 am

      Dear Anton,
      after the Budapest Card expires, unfortunately you cannot use it any more to get the discounts.

  • Lily January 17, 2017 at 10:42 pm

    • Budapest Cards January 18, 2017 at 9:25 am

      Dear Lily,
      if you choose to pick up your Budapest Card at the airport, you can start using it immediately, so the public transport from the airport to the city center will be free for you.

  • Michelle November 22, 2016 at 11:49 am

    Hello, I saw there is a 5% discount if purchased online and we can collect the card at the airport.
    1. What are the hours for collection at the Airport on a Sunday. Flight gets in at 11:45.
    2. Also what do we need to provide to collect the card?
    3. I saw on the main page http://budapestcards.com/ the 24 hr card has a public airport transfer. Is that just one way or both ways to airport? How does it work, is it bus, or train?

    • Michelle November 22, 2016 at 11:50 am

      One more question, where do we go in the airport to collect the card?

    • Budapest Cards November 22, 2016 at 1:07 pm

      Hello Michelle,
      If you ordered your card online in advance you can pick up the Budapest Card at the terminals of Budapest Airport with your printed confirmation email: terminal 2A or terminal 2B both have a tourist office (well signed for Budapest Tourist Info).
      Opening hours of the tourist office on Budapest Airport:
      Terminal 2A, daily from 8 am to 11 pm
      Terminal 2B, daily from 10 am to 10 pm
      If you arrive later than 11 pm we do not recommend buying the Budapest card with an airport pickup, as no tourist office is open. Instead you can get your card in the city center tourist offices. But perhaps for late night arrival the best is to order the card to your hotel (the card delivery is free of charge for online reservations).

      Public transportation is free of charge in whole Budapest during the validity of your Budapest Card (starting from the first use of the Card).

  • Malcolm Abbott October 31, 2016 at 6:12 pm

I am a little bit confused, because both sites propose the card as official one. I would be grateful if you clarify that point.

  • Maria July 7, 2016 at 9:25 pm

    Hi! I’m visiting Budapest next week, with my husband and my 20 months old son. I’ve already bought 2 cards for me and my husband, but I was wondering if I need another card for my kid, giving the fact he’s still an infant.

    • Budapest Cards July 8, 2016 at 9:49 am

      Hi Maria,
      As the public transport is free for children under 6, and most of the museums offer very cheap prices for kids, it might not be a very good deal to purchase a card for the little one.

  • Rania Walker July 11, 2015 at 5:55 pm

    Do NOT bother with this card. Especially if you are travelling as a family and must buy multiples. Its really just an over-priced transit card. I hate to say it because I love to support local tourism programs but this card is not a good value at all, in fact its very disappointing. We were advised to get the card from a couple expats who had heard that it covered a number of excursions and attractions. I did my research online and knew what discounts and freebies came with the card. To date, we’ve only been able to benefit from the transit side and a get a 10% discount at Gellert baths. Everywhere else we’ve gone or called – The Children’s Railroad, the lift, some museums, the escape room, the scenic dinner cruise – all refuse the card. You are better off to just buy the regular transit card which is half the price then be frustrated and feel taken for a ride. Budapest is a beautiful city with lovely, friendly people and so much to see and do, and can be done for a reasonable price without the extra expense of a useless city card.
