About The Budapest Card:

If you're planning a fun and refreshing weekend trip to the Hungarian capital then the Budapest Card could be one of the few bookings you need to make. It's the city's official travel discount pass, with offers ranging from free public transport to dining, culture and attraction concessions.

Cards vary based on their validity period. Select from either 24, 48, 72, 96 or 120 hours depending on the length of your stay or budget. The same list of discounts and services apply to every card regardless of their validity, so needn't worry about missing out even if you're just exploring for a day.

You can either have your cards delivered to your hotel, or you can pick them up yourself at the Hungária Koncert office in Danube Palace.


Card Types:

  • 24 | 48 | 72* | 96 | 120 Hours.

*This card type comes in adult and junior varieties.


How Does It Work?

See the information at the bottom of our Bookings Section for instructions on how to purchase and collect your Budapest Card.

Card Usage Tip:

Requesting free hotel pick-up is a great way to get the most out of your Budapest Card. You won't be able to use it immediately upon arrival at Ferenc Liszt Airport, but we wouldn't recommend doing this anyway, since getting from the airport to the city centre is already extremely cheap and easy. The 100E bus is a shuttle service that directly connects passengers to Kálvin Tér Metro, Astoria Metro and Deák Ferenc Square.

Single tickets are only 900 HUF, while seniors aged 65+ and children under 6 years of age travel free.

Upon arriving in the city centre and finding your hotel your Budapest Card[s] will be waiting for you at the reception desk. On the back of the card you'll notice four blank fields: [Month] - [Day] - [Hour] - [Signature]. The first three fields indicate the exact moment at which your card's validity period begins. You can fill in whichever values you like, though we'd recommend choosing a start point sometime during the following day.

Particularly if you're new to the city, you're unlikely to use your Budapest Card much (if at all) on the first day. Instead, spend this time settling into your hotel, getting something to eat and doing a bit of on-foot orientation. On the following day your Budapest Card will become valid and you'll likely have a better idea about where to start and what to do.
