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 Older travel books and outdated Budapest travel guides or old forum threads may confuse some tourists regarding the tickets, stays and refunds.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

  1. Hi,
    I booked 2 tickets for entry on Sunday 3 October, we arrived at 18:00 but then we were told we couldn’t enter because it was too late. My tickets were kindly moved to Monday 4 October, but my friend became sick on Monday morning probably due to our dinner on Sunday night. Could you please refund our tickets? Thanks

  2. Hello, I purchased 3 tickets online for 14th December and now my vacation has been cancelled due to Covid restrictions + I have tested positive for COVID-19. Please is there a way to receive a refund as I can’t fly to Budapest from UK anymore. Thank you for any help!!

  3. I purchased a ticket for the baths on April 23rd, when checking out the screen kept freezing so it ended up booking me for the 25th instead. I went in to try and change it which they said they could do since it was my last day in Budapest but the manager came and said she wouldn’t change it. Can I be refunded
