Danish tickets: Companions do not travel for free. Both you and your companion must have a ticket and can buy discounted tickets if you have one of the following cards: Membership card from Dansk Blindesamfund, membership card from Synscenter Refsnæs or companion card Denmark from Danske handicaporganisationer. Even when traveling with "Rejsekort personal - handicap" you can bring a companion with you at a reduced price.

  • The companion ticket is a discount you and your companion get access to if you meet specific requirements for needing assistance. The discount means that you are allowed to travel on a child ticket as an adult. The child ticket can be purchased in the app, be on a card or something else. In some sales channels, you can alternatively buy an accompanying order ticket instead of a child ticket. The ticket is available both for you and your companion.
