Extremely handy. We took full advantage of this card in both travel and accessing attractions.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

The card was fabulous...also got one in Budapest. well worth the money. Word to the for pickpockets on public is true that they are bold. Caught one in the act with my purse on trolley...dropped what he grabbed and ran off when the doors opened.

Used transport throughout trip, heard horror stories about fines if you didnt have a valid ticket, however not once was we approached and asked for our ticket.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

The cards were waiting for me when I arrived at my hotel. There was a great booklet letting me know how to get the most value from my card. It was a great value.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Excellent value for those under 65 but we discovered that over 65's are free on all the public transport and over 70's are free to enter museums.

Very good value.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

If you want to tour by public transit this is the only way to go. Used it many times while in Budapest.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

This was a very easy and affordable way to get around Buda Pest. Bus 16 rules and pretty much gets one everywhere needed on Buda hill. The trams and underground are likewise easy to use and a good way to see the city.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Great way for discounts and free transportation.
