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.
This card was extremely useful especially as we were staying outside the city and we were using public transport a lot . Also great offers available when purchasing the card
Cards were waiting for us on arrival at our hotel. Used for public transport and entrance to many museums and attractions. Great value for money.
Extremely handy. We took full advantage of this card in both travel and accessing attractions.
The card was fabulous...also got one in Budapest. well worth the money. Word to the wise....watch for pickpockets on public transportation.....it 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.
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.
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.
If you want to tour by public transit this is the only way to go. Used it many times while in Budapest.
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.
Delivered before our arrival to our hotel this was a great buy. Used it for three days on tram and subway. went over Arpad Bridge from Buda to Szecheny Baths in Pest and the Subway all over the city. Went to Buda caste and at the best museum entry was free!
You will want a serious marker pen to write in the date and time you first USE the card. Get it.you won't regret it.
The card was great value and the city of Budapest was breathtaking!
We loved the Budapest card. We enjoyed using the transit system and visiting museums when the day was too hot or rainy to stay outside. The card also included a 10:30 walking tour on any morning on the Buda side. We took advantaged on our first full day in Budapest. We took the 2:00 p.m. tour on the Pest side on our last day in Budapest. Both tours were quite informative.
The Budapest card was extremely practical and very easy to use...once they arrived to the right location
I found the card to be an essential even if you just use for public transport as so convenient and saves money. Handy option of having it delivered to your hotel so pick up on checking in.
I used it for free entry to excellent museums and to roman ruins at aquicum. Savings too on other attractions.
This card was well worth the cost for the free public transport alone! Some of the other specials were not so easy to obtain, mainly because some staff at some venues were not familiar with conditions of the card.
