In any way, there is no refund. Older travel books and outdated Budapest travel guides or old forum threads may confuse some tourists regarding the tickets, stays and refunds.

True, there used to be a refund system at Szechenyi Baths, but the refund system is no longer in use. So if you buy a full time ticket but only spend 2-4 hours at the baths, you will not be refunded anything.
Instead of the old refund system at Szechenyi Spa Baths, there are morning tickets, afternoon tickets and evening tickets in addition to full day tickets. The ‘day section’ (i.e. morning and evening) tickets allow you to stay for 2 hours, the full day ticket allows you to stay any time of the day for any hours (as long as the facilities are open – please note, that after 7pm only the outdoor pools are open and there are no regular bath services, or late night massages). Buying the full price ticket is a good investment we think, as the baths and pools, the massage therapies, etc. are really fun and relaxing, a perfectly lovely way to spend a full afternoon or morning in Budapest.

  5. Hi, is there an option for a half day ticket? We are intending to visit the baths for 2 hours (10am-12pm) in early May. Please advise.

    Thank you.

      Dear Esther,
      Unfortunately there is no option for a half-day Ticket, however if you do not mind waiting at the cashiers, you can buy afternoon tickets on the spot, which is valid after 5 pm on weekdays. Or there is the Morning Bath Ticket from 6 am – 8 am.
      Thank you for your understanding.
