Many universities in Hamburg already send their full-time students the HVVSemesterTicket (for fare rings A-E) together with their study course documentation. For full-time students whose institute of higher education does not offer the SemesterTicket there are reduced-price monthly season tickets as well as the all-year season ticket, which is particularly good value for money.
The take-along bonus
Between 01.09.2020 and 31.12.2020 inclusive, SemesterTicket 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.
