Tickets for school children

The HVV offers special tickets for all children in regular primary or secondary education at a public school. For all other schools, please ask in your child’s school secretariat or call the HVV Infoline on 040/19 449 to find out if the school is on the HVV list of verified eligible schools, meaning that it is possible for students to buy a season ticket for school children.
The ticket will be issued for school children who attend school in Hamburg via the  HVV service centres. The arrangements for this may be different in some surrounding districts of Hamburg.

If you have any questions concerning your existing ticket, please get in touch with your Client contract partner. When you do this, please have your customer number ready. You will find this on your ticket.  

The take-along bonus

Between 01.09.2020 and 31.12.2020 inclusive, season ticket holders can benefit from an extra bonus during the validity of their ticket: within the existing area of validity of their ticket, they can take along 1 other person and up to 3 children aged 6–14 at no extra charge from Mondays to Fridays starting at 11 am, on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays all day. Supplementary tickets and upgrade tickets for Sprinter bus/regional trains RB/RE are then valid for all those you take along under this ruling. As always, children under 6 travel free of charge anyway.


For a child up to 14 years of age, a check of the child’s age is made the first time you apply (a pre-printed HVV entitlement form or some other official proof of age is sufficient for this).  

To buy the schoolchildren’s ticket, present the entitlement form filled out and validated by the school and bring along a photo. You can obtain the entitlement form at HVV service centre and often in the secretariat at your child’s School.

When buying a ticket for a child aged 15 or older a new entitlement form must be submitted.

To buy the schoolchildren’s ticket, present the entitlement form filled out and validated by the school and bring along a photo. You can obtain the entitlement form at HVV service centre and often in the secretariat at your child’s school

Tickets for schoolchildren up to 10th grade are ordered and delivered via the school secretariats. The ticket consists either of a HVV Card or a personal travel pass (with a photo of the child) and sticker.

In Schleswig-Holstein and Niedersachsen these tickets will be paid for by the district administration and the school boards in the administrative districts of Pinneberg, Segeberg, Stormarn, Herzogtum Lauenburg, Stade, Harburg and Lüneburg for schoolchildren who need to travel a Minimum distance1 between their home and school. In the administrative districts of Herzogtum Lauenburg, Pinneberg and Segeberg, holders of tickets will be required to pay a contribution towards the cost of the ticket themselves. Details can be obtained from the authorities in the individual administrative districts.
 
1 This falls within the discretion of the individual country districts.

Do you need a wider area of validity than the one that the district administration and the school boards are willing to pay for? Then you can simply buy a supplementary ticket for individual journeys or alternatively you can get the SchülerPlusTicket at any HVV Service centre (just present the regular schoolchildren’s ticket) as a top-up monthly or all-year season ticket. 

The leisure pass (you need to present your entitlement form and a photo when you buy it) for 8.20 € a month is aimed at school children 15 and over who don’t have an all-year season ticket, but would like to use HVV services in the afternoon and at weekends.  It is valid from 2 pm and all day at weekends, on public holidays and in the school holidays. It allows you to buy single or day tickets at the child’s price.

You can get the entitlement form at any HVV service centre and often in the school secretariat. It needs to be filled out and then validated by the School.
