Student ticket and student discount

Student ticket and student card  

Students are eligible for a discount upon presentation of a student card with the Matkahuolto logo printed on it. Cadets receive a discount upon presentation of their official identity card issued by the Finnish Defence Forces. 

Almost all students have the opportunity to join a student organisation, which provides them with a physical student card or a student card app. For more information about the student card and the criteria for issuing it, please contact your student organisation or educational institution. 

 The Matkahuolto logo may be used by student card issuers whose students are: 

  • studying in Finland or Finnish students who study abroad and receive financial aid from the Social Insurance Institute of Finland (Kela) or adult education allowance granted by the Education Fund 

  • studying on a full-time basis 

  • not receiving any daily allowance or pay for their studies 

  • not receiving any income from any government position, job or entrepreneurial activities 

  • completing the 10th grade of comprehensive school

  • adults completing comprehensive school on a full-time basis

 Students not entitled to a student discount are students who are: 

  • studying abroad and not receiving student aid from the Social Insurance Institution of Finland (Kela) 

  • undergoing training under government employment schemes and receiving unemployment benefit or allowance 

  • post-graduate students at universities and those who already have degrees 

  • private students 

  • completing comprehensive school

  • undergoing apprenticeship training 

  • undergoing special training and receiving compensation from the Social Insurance Institution (Kela) or an insurance company other than student grants, excluding those studying at special vocational schools who are entitled to the discount
