Discounts for pensioners

When you have retired, you can get pensioner discounts. Often you will have to prove that you are retired.

Check the criteria for discounts with the ticket offices or via online services. If you buy the ticket beforehand via an online service, you must prove your entitlement to a discount at the same time as you present your ticket.

You may also be eligible for discounts for municipal services, such as sports events. Many cultural institutions, such as theatres and art museums, give discounts to pensioners. It is also worthwhile to ask for pensioner discounts from many businesses, such as hotels.

Certificate on receipt of a national pension

Sometimes you need a certificate proving that you receive a national pension in order to buy a ticket at a discount. You can request a certificate by visiting a Kela's customer service point or calling Kela's customer service number.
