Reduced-price all-year season tickets

All-year season tickets for school children, students, apprentices/trainees and senior citizens

For many HVV clients, we offer tickets art reduced prices. We have compiled a list here of what tickets there are and how you can get them. For these tickets, you need to prove your entitlement to them and take the entitlement form along when you travel. 

The HVV offers special tickets for all school children in regular primary or secondary education at a public school.

The BonusTicket for apprentices/trainees can already be ordered as an all-year season ticket for those doing their course in Hamburg and in the administrative districts of  Pinneberg, Segeberg and Herzogtum Lauenburg. 

As of 1.8.2021 the BonusTicket for apprentices/trainees as an all-year season ticket will also be available for those doing their course in the (country) districts of Stormarn, Harburg and Cuxhaven (in Cuxhaven it is only valid for rail travel).

The BonusTicket for apprentices/trainees is valid on the entire network. The prerequisite for buying it is that the company where you are doing your course is either in Hamburg or in one of the administrative districts mentioned above and the company is willing to subsidize your ticket. The flat rate price of 70€ is then split up as follows:

hvv_icon_pp_smiley_erfuellt_rot_rgb_80x80

30.00 € apprentice/trainee’s own share

hvv_icon_daumen_vorteil_rot_rgb_80x80

20.00 € subsidy from the employer

hvv_icon_muenzen_rot_rgb_80x80

20.00 € subsidy from the City of Hamburg or the administrative district of Pinneberg, Segeberg or Herzogtum Lauenburg

If you have these three things, ordering the ticket will only take a moment

To order the ticket you need an entitlement form, a photo and the filled-out order form for an all-year season ticket. Apprentices/trainees who already have an all-year season ticket and want to switch over to the BonusTicket for apprentices/trainees, which is better value for money, can change it on the order form for the all-year season ticket. The order form for the all-year season ticket also has a field where you can specify the bank account the monthly fare money should be debited from. The account holder must sign the SEPA direct debit mandate needed for this on the form. The Instructions on how to complete the form (91,11 KB) (German) for the order form for an all-year season ticket will help you when filling it out.
