So, 1-day Card (no matter at what time you activate it), is valid only up to 4am on that particular day. It does not work on a 24-hour basis so if you have activated it at 11am, the validity does not end on 11am the next day. The same applies for 2 and 3-day Cards where the validities are on consecutive days. The Discounts are valid throughout your stay, whether you are in the city for a day or for a month.Always check in and out, also when you transfer! If you don’t, you are travelling with an invalid ticket and you will risk a fine.
