Can You Re-use Registered Istanbul Kart or Can You Match Used Istanbulkart with New Hes Code ?
Sometimes, tourists who finished their vacation in Turkey want to hand over used Istanbul Card to their friends or relatives in order to re-use it. Previously it was possible. However, since istanbulkart personalized before with the HES Code, it's not possible to match with another HES Code of another person.
You need to buy a new Istanbulkart and match it with your HES Code or use it as it is (we don't recommend).
If Istanbulkart was not paired with a HES code before, you can match with your HES Code and use it.
