Buy a mobile ticket & pay conveniently
In the hvv switch app you can conveniently buy various hvv tickets for Hamburg's public transport. From short distance tickets to single tickets and 9 o’clock group tickets. You can pay securely and quickly via PayPal or credit card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express).

In Hamburg, hvv isn't the only way to get around. You can also book a MOIA ride directly in the app! Because MOIA takes you quickly and comfortably to your destination. Simply share your ride with up to 4 other people and save money! You book a ride, get in the car and on the way, passengers can exit at any time, or stay longer if they are heading in the same direction. This way you relieve Hamburg's roads and also the environment. The electric fleet of MOIA takes you emission-free, quiet and comfortable to your destination.

SIXT share & MILES
Mobility and carsharing belong together. That's why we have additional partners in SIXT share and MILES to help you get to your destination flexibly. Always stay in control and decide for yourself: Pay by the number of kilometers with MILES, or by the minutes with SIXT share. Your trips are billed directly to your hvv switch account. You can easily find SIXT share and MILES vehicles in the hvv switch app - also at hvv switch stations near you.

Do not use this app with foreign credit cards

It seems they cannot figure out Apple Pay so they use PayPal in a super weird configuration that causes Cash Advance fees. It’s Germany, don’t waste your time, pay with cash.

Developer Response ,

Dear physhfr, PayPal is a common payment method in Germany. In the future, we will add further payment methods to our app. We ask for your understanding. Kind regards, hvv switch / LW

Hit with outrageous fees

Visiting my hometown Hamburg I was happy to learn about the (seemingly uncomplicated) new HVV Switch app. Unlike the old HVV app It gives you only 2 payment choices: PayPal or a German option I never heard about.
I was aghast when I saw that every time I bought a 2.63 € ticket I was hit with a $10.00 transaction fee by my credit card company because, unlike other purchases, the Switch app uses the cash option of a credit card, not the credit.
Much as I like the ease of using Switch - if this doesn’t change, I will not use the app anymore!

Developer Response ,

Dear Hanseata, thank you for your feedback! We are very sorry to hear that. Could you maybe name the German payment option that you have used? We have not heard of that problem before.
Kind regards, hvv switch / LH
