Prepaid travel packages allow you to get around the city easily for several days. Some packages provide unlimited taking of almost any kinds of public transportation, some include entrance fee for several famous sites.

These packages are offered by different companies, and have a wide range of variety to choose from. Please remeber to consult the retailers as they have different coverage on utilities respectively.


Travel Card

A prepaid card for taking public transportations in Denmark

You can purchase an empty anonymous Rejsekort both at convenience stores and ticketing machines. However, we suggest you purchase your Rejsekort at the airport, since most of the ticketing machines outside the Airport either have run out of new Rejsekort or do not support purchasing for new Rejsekort.

How to Travel with Rejsekort

Check-ind and Check-ud

Remember to check yourself in and out when you hop on or off a ride !
Check in Check out pole

To check in, find the checkpoint close to you with "Check ind" sticker or ind light on top.
To check out, its exactly the same as check in, but find the checkpoint with "Check ud" sticker or ud light on top.

Failure to comply may result in a 750 kr. (100 €) penalty fee if a ticket inspector reached you.
