No. Only in the AVV area it is still possible to take up to 3 children under the age of 15 with you free of charge.

How do I get the 70,96€?
The semester ticket includes the AVV part, which costs 137,43€ (22,905€ per month) in the semester, and the NRW part, which costs 58,50€ (9,75€ per month) in the semester. For the duration of the campaign period (June, July and August), the AVV part of the semester ticket will be reduced to 9€ per month and the NRW part to 0€. This results in a difference of 22,905€-9€=13,905€ per month for the AVV-part and a difference of 9,75€-0€=9,75€ per month for the NRW-part. Thus, the total amount that will be reimbursed is 3*(13,905€+9,75€)≈70,96€.
