I need an invoice on the booking
Sure, that is not a problem, actually you can do it via self-service on the booking. At the end of the booking process please tick the “I need an invoice” button and fill out the data required.

Why do I get a second email on booking?
Our booking system (Fareharbor) is unable to generate the financial receipt needed for the payment by the relevant Hungarian laws. Therefore we use a separate service to create and send you a receipt (or invoice when you requested) from szamlazz.hu that is sent in a separate, second email.
Due to technical constraint modification/amendment of the invoice is only possible by manual method within 7 days from the issue thereof, therefore you are requested to double check the details given before clicking the button.

Naturally it is possible, however takes time, therefore you need to ask it well in advance. For the invoice you need to provide all the invoicing details to our bar crew. Should you provide an email address, then the invoice will be electronic, otherwise printed on a heatpaper.
Can I sit only at a dedicated seat/table?
No, we do not accept prior seat/table reservation for our trips. Passengers are free to occupy places first-come. However, for occasional larger groups we maintain tables. You may move freely between the lower and upper deck. We recommend that you go out the top panorama deck at least once during the trip; the view is magnificent.
Do I need to take the ticket for the trip? Are the tickets for a specific person?
The passengers are identified on the basis of the ticket, so you have to present the ticket that enables you to participate. But we love trees, so the presentation by a smart device like phone or tablet is perfect.
However, IDs are not checked, only the number and type of the tickets. Therefore the first presenter of a valid ticket will be allowed to travel.
