Am I eligible for the 30-day HSL ticket / Whim Weekend?
To use Whim Weekend, you will need to meet HSL’s 30-day ticket requirements:
1. Your permanent address must be in one of the HSL municipalities: Helsinki, Espoo, Kauniainen, Vantaa, Kerava, Sipoo, Tuusula, Kirkkonummi, or Siuntio (or in of one of the neighboring municipalities listed here: Hanko, Hausjärvi, Inkoo, Karkkila, Lohja, Mäntsälä, Nurmijärvi, Pornainen, Porvoo, Pukkila, Raasepori and Vihti).
2. When purchasing the Whim Weekend plan, which includes the HSL 30-day ticket, you will need to authenticate – either with bank credentials or mobile certificate. This will also verify your city of residence.
3. To authenticate, you’ll need to log in with your HSL account. The purchase process will direct you to the HSL service automatically, where you’ll either need to log in to your existing HSL account or create a new one.
4. It is not possible to have an active season ticket on an HSL travel card or in the HSL app. If you do, simply use your existing ticket until it runs out, and then activate the 30-day ticket through Whim.
You cannot transfer existing time from a card or the HSL app to Whim.
If you have loaded an HSL travel card with value – as opposed to time – this will not prevent you from getting the 30-day ticket through Whim, and it won’t affect the value on your card.
