    Simple, uncomplicated processing at the airport, very helpful because it can be used in all means of transport, no waiting times at ticket machines, we can only recommend it, it is checked very frequently, for everyone who wants to be on the road a lot, definitely cheaper than paying for all services individually.

    Budapest card is definitely worth buying but you need to plan your trip well, to not feel like you are missing out on what is included, meaning We felt stressed we couldn't do it all, budapest is huge and amazing full of things to see and do. Its handy to have the free public transport included in the card, we did some museums included too and it had a guide tours included but we didn't see that until it started so we missed it.

    Very useful, but it must be thought well: if you use little means you may not need it, and it is better to study which attractions you can visit for free and on which you will have a discount, and how much. Overall, however, I recommend it: the convenience of moving around without buying tickets every time is priceless, especially in a few days vacation, to save time.
