REFUND: Unused tickets will not be refunded. Damaged tickets may or may not guarantee entry to the party.
CHANGE DATES: Changing the date of tickets may only take place in due time before the party date with the consent of the party organizers. Please contact the customer service of Paylogic to get your party date fixed. Last minute changes are usually not allowed as there is no time to process a request in due time.

ONLINE: online party ticket sales will stop at 6 pm on the given party date. If tickets remain you may try to buy them at the entrance of the baths at the same price as online.
PARTY CARDS: you will use a special waterproof payment card, which is the exclusive payment used at the party (to buy drinks at the bar, or spa party equipment upon entering, like flip flops, towels, robes, etc.). The balance of the card expires at the end of the party. Please do not forget to claim your card refund of the remaining balance at the end of the party (until 2.40 am possibly), as no refunds will be paid after the party if you forget to get your balance while being at the party. This also means that should you attend another bath party, the balance of the previous party is non-transferable. The minimum top of the card is HUF 6,000. The card goes with a string. The deposit on the card + string is HUF 2,000.
BATH WRISTBANDS: your waterproof party ticket will be provided upon entering the baths. This looks like a silicon wristwatch with a blank watch face. The wristband is not merely a proof of payment in the pools, but also your locker / cabin key. If you lost the wristband, you will pay a fine of HUF 2,500.
ERROR: If you receive and error code upon buying your party ticket on paylogic, please contact the customer service of paylogic. Typically an error code occurs if there is a multiple attempt at buying a ticket, which makes the system trigger an alert for a robot attack. If it happens, simply re-register with a different name / card, use a different browser and laptop to buy your ticket. Try to go through the payment process without multiple attempts to avoid the red flag.
INSURANCE: party tickets include insurance (on condition that your blood alcohol level is below 2,2 ‰). The insurance is for minor injuries, theft.
STORAGE: online tickets include a bath locker (or cabin, if you buy the more expensive tickets). But if you happen to arrive later on than the party begins, available places may run out. If there are no more lockers available, you will be given a waterproof plastic bag + an accompanying wristband ID at the entrance. After getting changed, you may hand in your plastic bag to the party personnel who will safeguard your bag.
