It is highly recommended to buy, went everywhere and anywhere


5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2016

We took out a 72 hr card which was great hoping on and off trams etc, the cards were at the hotel when we arrived. But if you are over 65 yrs its free to travel on buses and trams .

The Budapest card was one of the best decisions we made, but a little disappointed with Viator, as when i booked and paid for the card i gave details of the Hotel we were staying in. Sadly the Hungarian company did not get these details and sent me an email which was sent to Junk mail, so I did not receive it until the day I flew. I sent an email to confirm Hotel but the card was never delivered to the Hotel. The Hotel was so good as they supplied me with a card from their stock and they were provided with cards to cover the issuing of a card to myself and my partner. Thanks to the Hotel i did not lose anymore time having lost the use of the card the previous night, when we arrived.

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.
