Very, very convenient and easy way to use all the public transportation you want, especially the trams running up and down the Danube. Lots of good museums and activities, too. Be careful if you book baths on line, for example. There was no way to get the 20% off offered by the Budacard when we booked the Gellert Baths on-line. And the funincular (supposed to be 100% off) is no longer part of the program.

A card is needed for those who want an active holiday. And a card in this design is not so much a saving as your convenience, because most options are not free, but give only a discount. But it provides convenient and trouble-free movement around the city, and in some cases even interesting and entertaining excursions.

Very handy card that we bought online a day in advance and after receiving it at the airport could immediately use for the bus 200E to the center. Make sure you first walk to the exit from the airport with your voucher and request a card from the stand in the hall on the left. The bus 200e is a quiet and excellent connection where you have to change once but that points to its own.
