Semester ticket upgrade (until March 2024)

The semester ticket is valid throughout NRW as well as on certain trains and busses in the South Limburg area. You can find more information about the area of validity here and in our FAQ.
In order to be able to use the ticket all over Germany until March 2024, you have the possibility to buy a monthly upgrade. The regulations that will apply from the summer semester (starting in April 2024) can be found here. On this page you will find all information about the upgrade. If you have any questions, you can always contact us by mail.
Deutschlandticket = ticket for the public transport all over Germany (except long distance trains) for 49 euros a month



The upgrade costs 15.39 euros per month. This is the difference between what we currently pay for our semester ticket (per month) for validity in NRW and the Deutschlandticket.

Therefore: 49 euros (Deutschlandticket) – 33.61 euros (semester ticket NRW per month) = 15.39 euros (upgrade)


The Deutschlandticket is only valid until the end of the month. If you buy it on May 20, for example, it will still only be valid until May 31.

The upgrade is only valid in combination with an official photo ID and your semester ticket!

Of course, the conditions of your semester ticket still apply, e.g. taking up to three children under the age of 15 with you for free (in the AVV area) or the extension to Zuid-Limburg (NL).

Whether there will be a long-term, cheaper solution for students is yet to be seen (see FAQ regarding the 129-euros semester ticket).
We will continue to advocate for this and keep you informed!
