Apprentices and trainees

We are offering the hvv Deutschlandticket to all apprentices and trainees for € 49

But you can get it even cheaper!  How? - The former BonusTicket for apprentices/trainees is now being reconfigured as the hvv Deutschlandticket for apprentices/trainees, and then only costs € 29 per calendar month.

Prerequisite: the company where you are doing your course (dual training) or the City of Hamburg / the participating administrative district (full-time vocational training at a college) pays a contribution towards the costs.

hvv Deutschlandticket for apprentices/trainees

The former BonusTicket for apprentices/trainees will become a hvv Deutschlandticket valid on local and regional services (2nd class) all over Germany.

Dual training courses

Your employer must participate in the ProfiTicket programme and pay a subsidy towards the hvv Deutschlandticket for apprentices/trainees. 

Full-time vocational training at a college

If you are doing a full-time course of vocational training at a college, this subsidy will be paid by the City of Hamburg  or the participating administrative district.  The prerequisite is that the place where you are doing your course is in:

  • Hamburg
  • Kreis Herzogtum Lauenburg
  • Kreis Pinneberg
  • Kreis Segeberg
  • Kreis Stormarn
  • Landkreis Harburg
  • Landkreis Cuxhaven


  • Kreis Steinburg: Students doing a full-time course of vocational training at the Berufsfachschule III (nursery and preschool teachers with integrated practical training still to be clarified) and other technical colleges, contrary to the ruling in the other administrative districts mentioned above, will be treated as if they were a full-time course at a school and will receive a student transport allowance free of charge."

As an apprentice or trainee, you pay € 29. The difference in price to the hvv Deutschlandticket is paid by your employer,  the City of Hamburg  or the participating administrative district.  

Companies who want to offer the hvv Deutschlandticket to their apprentices/trainees need to participate in the ProfiTicket programme.  

The price is then composed of the following elements:  

46.55
