ISIC card discounts - advice, experience, suggestions?

Hello everyone!

We're going for a weeklong trip to Budapest next week and were wondering about discounts for ISIC card holders.

These appear to be quite hard to find. I've found a discount for Danube river trips and assume that most museums / tourist attractions should probably have some sort of student discounts in place, but I was unable to find a definite list.

If anyone has experience with trying to use an ISIC for discounts in Budapest and would like to share it, it would be much appreciated.

Hi Kiplops, I would recommend bringing your own local student card too, as some places only accept a valid student card from your country (Latvia) rather than the ISIC card (e.g. MAV, the Hungarian train company), the latter of which is also accepted by many museums, no worries.

Students can use a lot of discounts in both travels and attractions, you will have no problem as EU students. You can visit the Parliament for free, just make a booking in advance.
