  • Francesca Camilleri July 4, 2020 at 1:34 pm

    Hi, I am planning to come to Budapest in Fenruary 2021. Where can I buy the card from, please? And do you have a discount for group orders or students, please?

    • Budapest Cards July 8, 2020 at 12:04 pm

      Dear Francesca,
      there are junior cards for up to 18 years old.
      Depending on the group size (normally school groups or larger groups of a bus/coach/van) pre-arrange a cheaper discounted entry fee at various attractions in Budapest.
      If you already know your itinerary, please check if the Budapest Card or the simple group travel card (which is not the same as the Budapest Card) means more saving for your group.
      Have a nice time in Budapest!

  • Dafni March 13, 2020 at 11:56 pm

    Is a wine tasting available in urban betyar restaurant & visitor center budapest card 72 plus? As I saw on their site this is what a 5 euros ticket provides.

    • Budapest Cards March 14, 2020 at 10:38 am

      Hello Dafni,
      yes, the entry is free for Budapest Card owners, the entry ticket would be €5 with a 120ml Wine as a welcome drink.

  • olga February 28, 2020 at 2:16 pm

    is the price the same if you buy at the airport? Staying in an airbnb apartment so would not be able to have the card delivered to a hotel

  • David February 20, 2020 at 10:23 am

    Hello. I have a question about the Budapest Card. For museums must you wait in line at the ticket counter?

  • Jeffrey Jackson February 2, 2020 at 12:21 pm

    During my recent visit to Budapest, Jan 17 to 24, I purchased a 72 hour Budapest card for my wife and myself. On visiting our first museum we discovered that museum entry is free for persons over 70. My wife is 74 and I am 77. However we felt it still provided free public transport. Since returning to the UK we have discovered that transportation is also free for persons of our age. I feel that we were missold this cards. The person selling these cards at Mr Nilz Kft, seeing we were possibly of this age should have made us aware of this instead of causing us to waste an unneccesary HUF 25980.

    • Budapest Cards February 3, 2020 at 9:24 am

      Dear Jeffrey,
      Budapest Cards offers a lot of benefits: baths, museums, free guided tours-more than 60 accepting places- where the entry is not free for pensioners, however, that retailer should have advised you in advance that the transportation is free for over 65 years old (EU members). Hope we can welcome you in Budapest with a better experience.

  • Han December 17, 2019 at 3:13 am

    I’m planning to arrive in Népliget or Kelenföld bus station.
    Is it possible to buy the Budapest Card in either station?

    • Budapest Cards December 17, 2019 at 4:17 pm

      Hello Han,
      we recommend you book online and receive the card at your accommodation.

  • Scott Meehan November 11, 2019 at 9:52 pm

    We visited Budapest in May of 2019. The walking tours with the Budapest Card were fantastic!! MONIKA was our tour guide, and she was funny, informative and personable. She gave a fantastic overview of Buda Castle, on the Buda side, and we enjoyed her so much that we took her city walking tour on the Pest side the very next day!! Her knowledge of local history was thorough, yet concise, and she made it easy to us to understand what the city has been through.

    Monika gave us enough background information that when we revisited the city sites on our own, we knew exactly what to look for as we dove deeper into our own historic interests. She also made fantastic recommendations for local dining and local music, as well as further exploration of interesting sites not on the tour! We were so inspired that we extended our trip, to see as much as possible!

    These walking tours alone made the Budapest Card worth its price!! Thank you Monika!!

    • Merran November 18, 2019 at 11:46 am


      That walking tours sound great Scott!

      Budapest Cards, I have paid for two 72 hour cards on Saturday 16.11.19 and I am still awaiting the confirmation email for this transaction. I have checked my spam emails and there is not one there or in my inbox. I was wondering how long this will take to come through please?

      Many Thanks,

      • Budapest Cards November 19, 2019 at 5:43 pm

        Hello Merran,

  • Daria July 30, 2019 at 1:50 pm

    Hello, we are a group of 6 visiting Budapest between the 14th and 17th of August. 4 of us have just celebrated their 18th birthday this year. Is it possible for them to buy the 72h junior card?

    • Budapest Cards July 30, 2019 at 7:03 pm

      Hello Daria,
      Junior cards are only for guests under 18 years old, so your friends are officially adults in Hungary.
      Thank you for your kind understanding.
      Enjoy your stay in Budapest!

  • Bronke June 30, 2019 at 8:48 pm

    Are the hours consecutively or divided into days?
    If I buy a budapestcard at the airport (or online) can I choose the days (or startday?) since I will be arriving very late and it would be a shame for one day to be ‘lost’.

    • Budapest Cards July 1, 2019 at 7:10 am

      Dear Bronke,
      the Budapest Card can be validated by the first use, so it does not matter when you buy it, it only matters when you start using your card. From the first use, the hours are counting, and it cannot be changed later on. Be careful to start using your card when it is the most beneficial (please note that on Mondays most museums are closed, so Mon may not be the best time to buy a 24h card, unless you wish to use the rest of the range of benefits, Lukacs thermal baths, public transport, etc.)

  • Robin Jarrett March 22, 2019 at 12:38 am

    Can you buy at train station

    • Budapest Cards March 22, 2019 at 8:29 am

      Dear Robin,
      yes, it is possible to purchase the Budapest Card at major train stations.

  • Kewalee Chalongklang March 20, 2019 at 12:45 pm

  • Nitin March 20, 2019 at 8:10 am

    I coming with my wife so do we need to take 2 cards seperately for all entry discount and free public transport or 1 card can be used?

    • Budapest Cards March 20, 2019 at 8:53 am

      Dear Nitin,
      the Budapest Cards need to be purchased min. 1 day ahead.
      If you book today, it can be delivered to you tomorrow.
      You will need one card per person.

  • Kristyna Plzakova March 13, 2019 at 11:40 am

    Dear Madam/Sir,

    I will be in Budapest during Easter. Can I purchase Budapest Card after arrival at f.e. a tourist information centre?

      Have a great time in Budapest.

  • cn February 1, 2019 at 4:03 pm

    On the ad for your card, it says it’s good for an airport transfer, how do you get it if the card is delivered to your hotel. We need to have it to use for that, our return will be by train. Also, it has free Danube boat ride and tower cake, I don’t see that on the card benefits. Pls explain. Thanks.

    • Budapest Cards February 2, 2019 at 2:02 pm


      thank you for contacting us.

      All the benefits can be found on:

      It includes the following too:
      “Sightseeing cruises on the Danube river cruises in Budapest: 10-20% off cruise fees depending on the cruise&guide programs”

      Budapest Cards entitle guests to 15% discount on the miniBud Airport transfer

      If you wish to use the minibus service, you need to buy your Budapest Cards and not order them for hotel delivery.

  • Joana January 11, 2019 at 3:10 pm

    I have just ordered 4 (four ) “48 hours Budapest Card” and put the address of the hotel where I’ll be staying. Due to my landing on midnight I’d like to know if the cards will be waiting for me at the hotel, because I want to use them the morning after my landing?

  • Shabbir December 2, 2018 at 8:54 am

    I am planning to visit Budapest in March, 2018. Can you please let me know the benefits of this card, as am not much aware of the details. Is it including the entrance fees for the tourist attractions or is it only for transport?

  • Kevin November 16, 2018 at 7:29 pm

    we purchased the Budapest Card (96 hrs). We are very active people and we had an Air B n B right downtown so we were able to walk most places. We visited about two attractions per day – one bath and a museum. We only took the transit once. Based on this activity level, we would not have purchased the card again. There is no opportunity to do a refund.

    • Budapest Cards November 17, 2018 at 3:49 pm

      Hello Kevin,

      thank you for your email.

      We hope you had a lovely time in Budapest.

      The non-refund policy is clearly indicated on our website, among the terms on:

      Unused cards cannot be exchanged or redeemed. Self-corrected or wrongly filled out Budapest Cards are not refunded or replaces.

  • Victoria moult November 3, 2018 at 5:17 pm

    • Budapest Cards November 4, 2018 at 8:48 am

      Dear Victoria,
      in this case I would recommend you to buy the Budapest Card at the airport.
      The online purchased card is available with hotel delivery only. Thank you for your understanding.

  • marcella October 13, 2018 at 3:47 pm

    heard that need to book the bath before. do i need to buy the card and book it or i can book it in advance and the card when i entry?

    • Budapest Cards October 14, 2018 at 8:14 am

      Dear Marcella,
      the Budapest Card discount does not apply to advance bookings, you can only use it if you buy your bath ticket at the cashier. Thank you for your understanding.

  • Abraham September 2, 2018 at 5:02 pm

    Hi, I will be visiting Budapest for 3 days, however the third day is not consecutive days, since I will be visiting Prague for 3 days and back to Budapest to catch my return flight. If I were to visit the zoo before my return flight which is on the third day, can I still use the pass to get discount for my visit to the zoo?

    • Budapest Cards September 3, 2018 at 7:58 am

      Dear Abraham,
      the 3 days Budapest card is valid from the first use and stops after 72 hours. Unfortunately it cannot be stopped once you have started using it. Thank you for your understanding.

  • Anna May 10, 2018 at 8:03 am

    Before purchasing the card, i would like to check the following issues: does the budapesh card is valid for municipal boats on weekends? is any restricctions, that i should know (weekends, time limitation).
    our child is 5 yo. so we are not going to purchase separate card for him. should we take any document, certified that he is 5 yo, not 6 or more?

    • Budapest Cards May 10, 2018 at 10:34 am

      Dear Anna,
      I can confirm that the Budapest Card provides free public transportation in Budapest, which includes the public boat rides (no. 11, 12 and 13) as well.

  • Cynthia April 27, 2018 at 6:17 pm

    You did not reply to my comment that I was scammed. I want my money back!!!

    • Budapest Cards April 28, 2018 at 10:07 am

      Hello Cynthia,

      thank you for your emails.

      Let me please point out, that we did reply to your comment on 18 April. We are terribly sorry to hear about your bad experience, but as said before, unfortunately, we cannot address your complaints. I am afraid, we cannot help you in contacting the salesmen at the Budapest Airport as we are a different company.

      Please note that we are only selling online purchased Budapest Cards and these cards cannot be received at the Airport. We deliver the online bought Budapest Cards via a special delivery service to a Budapest address, free of charge.

      I am sorry I could not be of more help this time.

  • RAJUL KOTHARI April 25, 2018 at 5:31 am

    • Budapest Cards April 25, 2018 at 7:35 am

      Dear Rajul,
      unfortunately not, as the public transport is free only within the boundaries of Budapest. Thank you for your understanding.

  • Siwen Zhu March 31, 2018 at 9:00 pm

    Hi Budapest Cards,

    I booked my accommodation on Airbnb instead of hotels, can I get my card from the Tourist Center or any other choices?

    • Budapest Cards April 1, 2018 at 9:12 am

      Dear Siwen,
      no problem, the Budapest Cards can also be delivered to an Airbnb. Please add your mobile phone number in the booking form so that we can contact you and arrange a suitable delivery time.

  • Anne Hasling Sørensen March 27, 2018 at 9:13 pm

    • Budapest Cards March 28, 2018 at 7:48 am

      Dear Anne,
      unfortunately the Cards are valid either until Mar 31 or after Apr 1. There is no card which is valid for both days. Thank you for your understanding.

  • Timothy March 23, 2018 at 12:17 am

    Dear Budapest card,
    Hi this is Timothy.
    I would like to ask that can I collect my card at the airport instead of my hotel? As I am staying in B&B it might not be possible to deliver to the B&B as they might not have the space to store parcel.


    • Budapest Cards March 23, 2018 at 8:06 am

      Dear Timothy,
      Please note that the online purchased Budapest Card can only be delivered to your accommodation, it cannot be picked up at the Airport or anywhere else in the city.
      Delivering the Card is also possible to a private apartment, even if there’s no reception to leave it. In this case please add your mobile phone number in the booking form, and the Budapest Card will be delivered to you personally.

  • Lisa March 20, 2018 at 2:20 pm

    It says in the above comments that you can buy your card online and collect it at the airport, however the booking form only gives the option of hotel delivery.
    How do I buy online and collect at the airport? Do I have to specify which terminal I will be picking it up at?
    Also, what is the advantage of buying online rather than in person at the airport, how much cheaper is it?
    I am interested in either the 72hr or 96hr card. How much is the price of either card if bought online or at the airport?
    thank you

    • Budapest Cards March 21, 2018 at 8:55 am

      Dear Lisa,
      thank you for your inquiry.
      Indeed, this option used to be available in the past, but I am afraid it’s not available any longer.
      The online purchased Budapest Cards can only be delivered to your accommodation address. It cannot be picked up at the aiport or any other location in Budapest. Thank you for your understanding.
      The prices online or at the ticket offices are the same.

  • leo March 4, 2018 at 2:41 pm

    I will be travelling Budapest in April 2018. Will many of the benefits be changed by then as it says the expiry day is 31/3/2018?

    • Budapest Cards March 4, 2018 at 3:47 pm

      Dear Leo,
      we are not expecting many changes in the benefits. The expiry date applies mainly to the prices, as they will change from Apr 1. Thank you for your understanding.

  • Franco March 2, 2018 at 9:37 am

    Hi, I’ll be traveling to Budapest next week. Wondering how I can book a card for 120 hours cause I can’t manage to do it from your website (I only see the options for 24/48/72). Then, I can I set the airport terminal as a collecting point?

    • Budapest Cards March 2, 2018 at 11:46 am

      Dear Franco,

      thank you for your inquiry.

      The 120 h is also available on the booking form, under the Adult (18+)* section. Please just scroll down.

      I am afraid, online purchased Budapest cards can only be delivered to your hotel, airport collection is no longer an option.

      I hope I could be of help.

    Budapest card makes travelling in Budapest easy and enjoyable.
    The 2 free walking tours are highly recommended! I joined the Pest tour in a chilly morning on 14Jan, the guide was exceptional, not just giving factual information but also some lively and interesting views that gave us an insight of some of the attractions, making the aprox 2hr walk in the drizzling of snow enjoyable as well as inspiring. Great tour!
