    We will be staying at an apartment. If we order our tickets in advance, is it possible to obtain them in the airport? Also, we are both over 62 years old. Do you have a senior discount?

      Dear Scott,
      Unfortunately the airport pickup option is no longer available. If your accommodation does not have a reception, then the Budapest Cards can be delivered to you personally in the apartment.
      I’m afraid there is no senior discount. Thank you for your understanding.
