  • You will also need the link to cancel the upgrade!

Please find the procedure for the Deutschlandticket:

  • Only students enrolled at the h_da with a valid RMV-Semesterticket are entitled to purchase or own the upgrade.
  • The offer is voluntary and must be paid for by each user.
  • The upgrade currently costs 26,46 EUR per month (49 EUR - 1/6 of the price of the RMV-Semester Ticket [135,23 EUR])
  • in addition to SEPA, PayPal and credit card payment options are also available
  •     as an upgrade a Deutschlandticket is issued. The Deutschlandticket is subject to the general tariff regulations and is valid throughout Germany in 2nd class on local and regional trains. It is only available as a HandyTicket.
  • The upgrade can be purchased at any time for the current month. However, it is only valid for one calendar month. It is offered as a subscription with monthly cancellation. Cancellation is possible until the last day of each month. However, it is not possible to offset a current month in the event of premature cancellation.
  • The current upgrade ends at the end of the summer semester at the latest, and a new upgrade must be purchased for the winter semester.
  • For control purposes, the current RMV semester ticket and a photo ID must also be carried.
  • The registration for the upgrade is done via a link. You will be redirected to Shibboleth, where you can log in with your student account (stXXXX) and after approval you will get to a web portal for the voluntary purchase of the upgrade. There you only have to enter some personal information (e.g. bank details) and you are ready to go.
  • The digital D-Ticket can be stored on the smartphone (eWallet) so that it can also be presented offline. However, there is no print version.

Attention: those who already have a regular "49-EUR-Ticket" subscription would have to cancel it and can then upgrade to the Deutschlandticket via the link above.
