Senior pass subscription

The subscription is worth it because a Senior pass subscription costs only 25,50 euros. Your Senior pass will be sent to your home conveniently via postal services, the monthly amounts will be automatically deducted from your account. You can also pay in advance for one year and benefit from a discount of 2 %. You can get the Senior pass subscription if you have reached the age of 60, are no longer working and receive a retirement pension from a social insurance agency or a pension from a pension fund or if you are in a non-work phase of a pre-retirement part-time arrangement.

More information

  • To take out a subscription, proof of eligibility must be presented that is valid for at least one year.
  • You can order the Senior pass subscription at the GVH Customer Centre or via the order form above.

For the Senior pass you need:

  • A passport photo for the customer card
  • A customer card which, once applied for, is valid indefinitely
  • Prior to the issue of a customer card, you need to demonstrate your entitlement for the use of a Senior pass by the pension approval certificate or the certificate from the pension fund. (You can black out all data that is not relevant for the proof, in particular the pension amount and its composition as well as bank details, if applicable.)
  • If you are 67 or older, it is sufficient to show your pension certificate
  • If you are in a non-work phase of a pre-retirement part-time arrangement, you will need proof by your employer or your employer's employer

Subscription start pass

If you apply for a new subscription, it takes a few days until your request is processed and you get the desired pass. The Subscription start pass allows subscribers to bridge the time from application to the start of the subscription period: it is currently issued in the GVH Customer Centre. The Subscription start pass is valid from midnight of the first day of validity until 05:00 a.m. of the last day of validity. The price depends on how many days must be bridged until the subscription starts. For each day only 1/30 of the future monthly subscription price will be charged.

Not the right ticket?
Maybe one of these offers will suit you:

  • Monthly pass subscription

    By acquiring a subscription of the Monthly pass you save round about 15 % compared to the price of twelve single Monthly passes. If you pay the entire amount for your annual pass at once, you will receive a further discount of 2 %. The total charge is simply debited to your account. You can choose between a freely transferable or a non-transferable personal pass.
  • 6 trip Day ticket

    The Day ticket is also available in a pack of 6 at an even more favourable price. The 6 trip Day ticket is available for one (A, B or C), two (AB or BC) or three zones (ABC). One ticket is valid for as many journeys you like in the buses, trams and trains within the chosen zone of the GVH tariff area – until 05:00 a.m. of the following day.
  • Senior pass

    Have you reached the age of 60, are no longer working and want to stay mobile in the Hanover region at an affordable price? In this case the Senior pass is exactly what you need. You can get the Senior pass subscription if you have reached the age of 60, are no longer working and receive a retirement pension from a social insurance agency or a pension from a pension fund or if you are in a non-work phase of a pre-retirement part-time arrangement.
