What is the festival card, and how does it work?
At Rosalia Festival you can pay with a Festipay festival card and with your contactless MasterCard PayPass or VISA PayWave bank card. If you do not have MasterCard Paypass or VISA PayWave bank card, all you need to do is to get a festival card for a deposit of 500 HUF at any Festipay service point and to top up the card with an amount chosen by you. When buying a glass of wine or a plate of food you can pay with this festival card. If you do not wish to consume more, return the card and you will get the deposit and unused credits back in cash.
Attention: If you pay with a debit or credit card when you top up the festival card, an extra 200 HUF service charge will be added to your bill.
What is the service charge for?
If you pay with a debit or credit card when you get or top up the festival card, an extra 200 HUF service charge will be added to your bill. This service charge covers the bank transaction fees, just like when you withdraw money from an ATM abroad. A service charge will be added at any time when you do a top-up. Because you get the unused credits back in cash, we recommend you top up the festival card with a bigger amount so you can avoid paying the 200 HUF service charge more times.
Why shall I use my MasterCard PayPass or VISA PayWave bank card?
If you have a contactless MasterCard PayPass or VISA PayWave bank card, do not leave it at home, so you do not need to get a festival card, queue up for topping up, and return the festival card or pay the service charge. At purchasing just touch your card to the POS terminal and your account will be directly debited. You do not need to register to use your MasterCard PayPass or VISA PayWave bank card and you will NOT be charged for the service.
