Tickets for apprentices and trainees

During your traineeship/apprenticeship you can get reduced-price monthly season tickets.  If you decide to get an all-year season ticket, you save something like 20 % top of that.

Alternatively, if the firm where you are doing your course offers it, you can take advantage of the BonusTicket for apprentices/trainees, which is subsidized on top, so unbeatable value for money!   

Tip: you will need an entitlement form to buy reduced-price tickets. This must be validated by the firm where you are doing your course and then by the relevant Chamber of Industry and Commerce/Crafts and Trade or verifying body. And when you travel by hvv, you should always have it with you.

Ordering

As soon as your training contract has been registered with the Hamburg Chamber of Industry and Commerce/Crafts and Trade, the form will automatically be sent to the firm where you are doing your course by post for them to validate it.
Alternatively, you can also get the entitlement form to be filled out at any of our service centres or order it via our Infoline under  040/19 449

When you have the validated entitlement form, all you still need is a passport photo. Just come into one of our service centres with those two things to fill out an application for your monthly or all-year season ticket. There you will get a provisional ticket with which you can travel straight away.  You will then receive your personalized hvv Card with your photo on it about 2 weeks later by post.
