VR approved student cards

As a student studying in Finland you get a discount on train tickets if you have a student union student card approved by VR.

When tickets are inspected onboard the train you need a student card approved by VR or a temporary certificate of student status for discount on VR trains if you have not received your student card yet. If you do not have a student card or a certificate from the education institution, the conductor will collect an additional charge onboard the train.

The joint VR and Matkahuolto student card has been discontinued as of June 1, 2016. Student cards purchased through Matkahuolto are valid on VR trains. If students do not have a student card granted by the student union yet, they can prove their eligibility for the student discount with a temporary certificate of student status (valid 3 months). Valid cards that have been purchased previously will still be valid on trains.

ISIC Card

Please note! An ISIC card or other international student card does not entitle you to a student discount.
