Frequently asked questions
Is this pass valid by hours?
Because on some sites it says that the validity is by the day and not by the hour?
They changed the system recently and perhaps another website hasn’t updated the information, however know that from the first use you simply have the amount of hours written on the ticket to travel. It doesn’t count by day.
Can I pick up this pass at metro ticket machines?
YES! As of 03/07/19 you can pick up your Hola BCN by entering your given voucher number at any metro ticket machine (airport included) along the entire TMB network.
I bought more than one ticket but the booking is only in my name, is that OK?
Yes, the cards aren’t assigned by name so anybody can use them once booked.
When picking up at Barcelona Tursime, can I show my voucher via smart phone?
As of today no, you’ll have to print out the voucher.
I made a mistake while booking and need to cancel the reservation, may I?
Yes, write to [email protected]
I lost my Hola BCN, can I get a replacement card?
Can I use the Hola BCN to reach places outside of Barcelona?
