General season tickets

If you regularly travel on HVV services we offer a range of bargain-price weekly and monthly season tickets as well as the supersaver AboKarte direct-debit travel pass: travel for 12 months but only pay for 10.

The date of validity for monthly and weekly season tickets, as well as corresponding upgrade tickets for Schnellbus limited stop/1. class services may be chosen at your convenience, e.g. from Tuesday to the following Monday, or from the 8th of a month to the 7th of the following month.

All General season tickets and Supplementary tickets are valid until services officially terminate on the last day of validity indicated. The services officially terminate at 0600 of the following day.

No problem at all – the few steps to your weekly or monthly season ticket

An HVV season ticket always consists of a customer photocard and a corresponding voucher indicating the period of validity.

  1. First select the ticket type you require and the area of validity as shown in the HVV Fare Zone Plan. Or enter the mask for our HVV Timetable Information service and let the assistant guide you to the right HVV season ticket just for you.
  2. If you do not yet have a customer photocard we will be glad to issue one to you at any of our HVV service centres. Just bring along a passport photo you’d like us all to see.
  3. Once we have issued your customer photocard and the corresponding voucher indicating the period of validity you are free to travel on HVV services.

That’s all you have to do. The easiest and most convenient way to buy your voucher week for week or month for month is at our HVV Online Shop or in person at any HVV customer service centre.
