How do you activate the Travelcard?

At every tube stop you will find a small blue ticket machine to activate your card, as well as inside the trams and buses themselves. You must slot your travelcard into the machine to stamp and activate it. The first time you do this will be the activation date and time of your travelcard. From then, the travelcard will be valid for the duration of your ticket; 24, 48 or 72 hours.

TOP TIP:The travelcard is not valid for travel to and from the Vienna airport. You will need to purchase an additional one-way ticket at EUR 1,80 from Vienna Airport to Vienna city limit. Although there are no ticket barriers, there are frequent checks by undercover transport officers on the transport networks – so make sure you have validated your travelcard before you go. If you travel from the airport to the city centre, make sure to validate both or extra airport ticket and your travelcard. Both adults and children are also required to hold a valid form of ID to be able to show on demand as well.
