Very useful card, provided you have properly planned your Budapest tour! I bought it for the last day of our trip, which included Buda side (Historical Museum, Art Gallery, Castle, St. Matthew's Temple, Fisherman's Bastion). Although it exclusively includes the public Museums of the city (& in some cases not all Museum wings), it is ultimately useful in combination with public transport (city buses, trams, metro), because you save a lot of time & comfort. To get it, you must first visit Budapestinfo points (we went to the one in Városháza park) & show your digital voucher. Then you receive the card with the filling instructions: you have to sign it & note the exact time you start using it. Its effect starts with its 1st use & lasts 24 hours. It can also be used & to return to the airport, as follows: first you take the city bus M3 which currently replaces the metro. Then you use the metro to the terminal station Kispest & finally the city bus to the Airport. The route is very easy!

Definitely worth it but some things like the reduced airport shuttle need to be booked same time as the card! Didn't get checked on trams and tube so panicked a bit!

Undoubtedly the best choice for getting around Budapest, highly recommended!

You must have this card for a city trip! Pays for itself double and thick.

It was so worth it. We had so much fun for only 24 hours. :)
