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 Older travel books and outdated Budapest travel guides or old forum threads may confuse some tourists regarding the tickets, stays and refunds.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.

    Hi, as the daily ticket is for the whole day, can I check-in early in the morning for a couple of hours, then go out to the city center for shopping, for lunch, etc and re-entry the baths with the same daily ticket, late in the afternoon for a couple hours, again?

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Dear Georgios,
      unfortunately, the bath tickets are single passes, so it is not possible to leave the baths and come back on the same day with the same tickets.
      If you wish to do some shopping we suggest the arrival in the afternoon, as Szechenyi Spa Baths is open until 10pm.
      Enjoy your holiday in Budapest!

  3. Hello,
    Are the tickets transferable to another day in case I do not make it to the baths on the original day that I purchase my advanced ticket for? I will be flying in to Budapest and plan to visit the baths a few hours after I land. In case of airline delays and I have to visit the baths a day later than i intended, can I still use my original ticket?

    Thank you.
