The Budapest Card guarantees the discounts for one person. The name of the cardholder must be written on the card, so the card cannot be assigned to somebody else after signed. To be able to use the card, it has to be filled in – it shall be signed by its holder and the date of first use shall be indicated on it in the following order: month, day, hour (the last full hour elapsed on that day without the minutes). Please protect the card because cards with corrected or unreadable data are no longer valid.

After filling it in and signing it, the card must be shown when using public transportation. At any other service, the card’s NFC-chip allows the client to get the discount. For that, NFC readers are settled to every service provider. A guide for correct completion is included in the Budapest Card brochure. If the card is completed incorrectly at the sales point, the salesman should exchange it at the purchase location, giving a new, blank card and retaining the spoiled one.
