Airport Express Travel Pass detail

Two people, arriving Jan 19 morning, leaving Jan22 morning.

AE travel pass looks ideal for AE from and to airport, plus freedom to hop on transit any time

as long as we keep the Octopus loaded.

BUT

the pass includes three days of MTR. That works: 19, 20, 21.

The AE ride to the airport will be the only ride on the 22nd.

The AE part of the pass won't expire on the 21st, right?

Better to get group discount pass and separate Octopus card as you have to do a LOT of travel to break even on the 3 days travel.

The Airport Express journeys can be taken any time within 180 days from date of purchase of the pass.

The 3 consecutive days unlimited MTR rides last for 72 hours from time of first MTR journey plus any additional hours to close of service on the final day and will also be valid on 22nd.

The cost of the AE Travel Pass includes a fully refundable HK$50 deposit.

Thanks, all. I must have miscalculated first time around, because separating the AE from the Octopus is a clear winner for me. Thanks.

Your breakeven points per person based on two persons travelling together are from HK$66 (HK Station) to $86 (Kowloon Station). If you will use the MTR system for HK$66/86 or more in total per person during the three consecutive days, the AETP will be better for you. Additionally, the calculation is based on taking the AE roundtrip Airport to City.
