Tickets – Hungary

Budapest Area

An excellent value rover ticket is available for the Budapest city area (details here).  This is valid on the metro, tram, buses, trolleybuses and local trains – not Intercity or equivalent services unfortunately, but still plenty of scope for loco haulage.  This is available in 24-hour (1650 HUF – £4.50 at April 2017 prices), 72-hour (4150 HUF – £11.33) or 7-day (4950 HUF – £13.52) versions.  The 7-day version carries your name on it and therefore needs to be purchased from a human being who can verify your ID – the “BKK” desk outside Arrivals at the airport is a handy place to get this done if you are arriving by plane – the process is light on bureaucracy takes about a minute.
