Deutschlandticket (49€‑ticket)

The Greater Hannover Transport Authority (GVH) offers students an upgrade to the Deutschlandticket (49€ ticket). The "Deutschlandticket GVH Semesterticket Upgrade" costs €16.67 per month. For this (upgrade) price, the student will accordingly receive a Deutschlandticket valid throughout Germany. The price is made up of the difference between a Deutschlandticket (49 euros) and the current monthly prices of the GVH Semestertickets already subscribed to (23 euros) and Lower Saxony-wide Semestertickets (9.33 euros).

Those who decide to upgrade to the Deutschlandticket can thus take out a corresponding individual subscription with the GVH at a price of 16.67 euros per month. The ticket will initially only be available to order on on the "My Subscription Portal". The digital ticket will be issued in the "My GVH App". The "Deutschlandticket GVH Semesterticket Upgrade" is only offered to students who have a currently valid GVH Semesterticket.

The GVH needs some time to process the order. Therefore, the "Deutschlandticket GVH Semesterticket-Upgrade" must be ordered by the 20th of the previous month.

Unlike the regional semester ticket in the solidarity model, however, there will be no obligation for students to use this upgrade, as it will be an optional offer.

The GVH also provides news about the Deutschlandticket in general on the GVH homepage.
