How to use Kaikukortti to get an entrance ticket or a place at a course?
With Kaikukortti you can get a ticket through the cultural venue’s own ticket sales channel. Be prepared to show your Kaikukortti and its code (number and/or letter combination) when getting the ticket. You cannot use Kaikukortti to get tickets from an online shop. The number of available Kaikukortti tickets may be limited.
If you get a ticket through Lippupiste or another commercial ticket broker, you have to pay a service charge even though the ticket itself is free of charge.
If you want to take a course at an adult education centre, enroll for the course as usual in advance and then contact the office of the given centre to give them your Kaikukortti code.
Notice also, that there may be a limited number of Kaikukortti course places available.
Bring your Kaikukortti with you
Bring your Kaikukortti with you when attending a cultural event or a course. The staff may request to see it. They may also ask you to prove your identity.
Tickets for children
If you have children or grandchildren under the age of 16, you can also use your Kaikukortti to get tickets for them when you attend the event together. Children or grandchildren can in some cases attend the adult education courses with you.
Kaikukortti for communities
If you are interested in going to an event with a small group or an employee, you should ask if an employee of a community distributing Kaikukortti would like to attend the cultural event with you.
The social service and healthcare actors that distribute Kaikukortti also have Kaikukortti cards for communities. Employees, volunteers and other representatives of communities can use Kaikukortti for communities to get a free entrance ticket for themselves and their clients who are under 16 years old when organizing a small group visit for one or more clients. Clients aged 16 or older must bring along their own Kaikukortti cards when attending the event. A small group can consist of, for example, 2-5 persons. Kaikukortti for communities can’t be used for the adult education courses.

Assistants to persons using the Kaikukortti card are always entitled to free admission. The assistant may be, for example, an assistant of a person with physical disabilities, a guide of a visually impaired person or an instructor of a person with developmental disabilities. An interpreter may be a Sign Language interpreter, a speech-to-text interpreter or a communication assistant. The holder of the Kaikukortti card needs to get a separate ticket for the assistant or interpreter.
