Tickets for senior citizens

Tickets for senior citizens (63+)

For all those aged 63 and over, regular travel on the HVV gets cheaper. With a season ticket for senior citizens 63+ you can be out and about for a whole month all day, every day – and at a budget price.

The take-along bonus

Between 01.09.2020 and 31.12.2020 inclusive, senior citizens 63+ 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.

Our tip: With a monthly season ticket, you can choose the first day it is to be valid yourself, e.g. from the 8th of a month to the 7th of the following month.

You can also get the season ticket for senior citizens 63+ as a supersaver all-year personal travel pass. This has many benefits: you save 20 % compared to a monthly season ticket. That means that you profit from the attractive annual subscription price even when you subtract holiday times when you don’t use your ticket.  

It‘s so easy!

If you already have a season ticket, but would like to travel in future on a season ticket for senior citizens 63+, you don’t need to cancel your old season ticket  – although it will not automatically be switched to a season ticket for senior citizens 63+ when you become 63. To switch over, just go into one of our HVV Service centres.

A personal travel pass with sticker
In our service centres you can also have a new personal travel pass issued together with the appropriate validity sticker. These will be sent to you by post a few days later.
Please remember to bring along a passport photo which shows you to advantage and your ID as proof of your age.

The electronic personal travel pass
Holders of an activated HVV Card can present it to have their season ticket for senior citizens 63+ saved onto their electronic personal travel pass in one of  our service centres. You can then renew the monthly season ticket you have chosen with your HVV Card at ticket machines equipped to do this.

The HVV App
You can also simply purchase monthly season tickets via the HVV App. To do this, you need to first register free of charge with MeinHVV.

N.B.: As the user of a season ticket for senior citizens 63+, you must always be able to prove your age when asked.
