How to use Kaikukortti? 



You can get tickets to cultural venues or a place on a course through the ticket sales channels of the participating cultural venues and adult education centres, excluding online sales. The number of available tickets and course places may be limited.  

When booking a ticket or a course place state your Kaikukortti number and be prepared to show your card. If you get a ticket through a commercial ticket agency you will have to pay the service fee, even though the ticket itself is free of charge. Tickets for most of the Kaikukortti cultural venues can also be obtained directly on location without a service fee. 


Bring your Kaikukortti with you 


Bring your Kaikukortti and your ID with you when attending an event or a course. The personnel may ask to see it.
