There is no handling fee for online purchases. If you buy your season pass or ticket online, you will receive an e-season pass or an e-ticket (in PDF format) by email. Please be sure to check your spam folder as well! E-season passes are fully valid electronic season passes that give you access to all the performances included in your season pass. To protect the environment, instead of printing out your e-season pass or e-ticket please save the PDF email attachment to your smartphone and present it at the venues with electronic admission (Müpa Budapest, Castle Garden Bazaar). If this is not possible, show the printout of your e-season pass or e-ticket. If you would like to exchange your e-season pass for a paper ticket, you can do so in person at the BFO’s offices by August 31, 2024.

We recommend registering on the website, logging into your account prior to making a purchase, and managing your season passes or concert tickets there. In your account, you can view your tickets for the season, and you don’t need to worry about looking for or downloading attachments sent by email.

Please note that SZÉP Cards, and OTP Cafeteria Cards can only be used when making purchases in person. For online purchaseses, using these forms of payment is not possible.

During the season, information about performances of the season passes (concert reminders, program changes, ticket refund information in case of cancelled concerts, stream links, etc.) will always be sent to the email address provided by the season pass purchaser at the time of purchase.

We are introducng dynamic pricing from the 2024–25 season. Dynamic, or demand-based pricing is a sophisticated pricing process where the price of an event is determined by demand and supply, and therefore, prices may go up and down from time to time. Dynamic pricing may also result in varying ticket prices for different dates of a given program. The current ticket prices of the concerts are always the same at the ticket vendors and on the online platforms, however, in the case of online purchases, the price of a ticket already in your basket will not change. Dynamic pricing will not affect the price of season passes. Discounts on flexible season passes will be calculated based on fixed ticket prices until July 31, 2024. Click here for more information on dynamic pricing.
