In this post I will do a review of Budapest Card which is the official city card. The cards are sold for 24, 48 and 72 hours. I’ve used the 72h card because I stayed in the city for a week.
The card is valid once you fill in the dates and the signature field. Each card offers all of the benefits (mentioned below), the only difference is the length of validity. If you register your card online which you can do here, you can get your card replaced for free in case it gets stolen, damaged or lost. You can only replace the card in the main tourist office in Sütő street.
24h card – 4900 HUF / 15 EUR
48h card – 7900 HUF / 25 EUR
72h card – 9900 HUF / 31 EUR
