ID Card For SK's Youth Tickets

Thu May 06, 2004 4:04 am

I am looking to purchase a youth one-way ticket on SK from ARN to LHR via OSL. When I looked at the requirements, it says that I must possess an ID card to show that I'm aged between 12 and 25, but it does not state what constitutes an ID card. Would my passport suffice, or do they mean something different?

If you don't have an ID card with you, I'm sure they would be happy with your passport as well! I doubt that they would check it at the check-in or gate, but rather when making the booking.

I figure they require a national identity card, which I think are used in many of the EU countries, though I'm not sure about UK.

Anyway, a valid passport should be more than okay to prove your age, I think. But I suggest you still check from a more official source.

usually, when a policy says sth about ID CARD, any photo ID (drivers license, national ID, military ID etc.) including passports will be just fine.

Being a swede and under 25 I have done this many times. Your passport is enough or your national Identity card who should be valid for travelling within Schengen countries. (is the UK schengen?)

Zweed, no, the UK is not part of Schengen.

ACAfan, Schengen is a lot of European countries that went together and basically decided that when travelling between countries that are members of Schengen, you don't need a passport, just like travelling between different US states. It is, however, advisable to bring your passport, as it is the most widely recognized ID.

Swedish drivers licenses (the new ones), dutch National ID cards and mayn others cards are valid for travelling in between the Schengen countries.
The main thing is, if it shows your nationality on the ID-card. Then you can use it.

As Zweed hints at, Driver's Licences and ID cards are being harmonized between EU countried. If it has an EU flag on it, it's probably enough. Call the airline and ask, or bring your passport to be 100% certain.

ACAfan, KaiGwyer told you what The Schengen Treaty entails. the "unsexy" name is after the town where it was signed.

You just require a valid travel document (ID or passport) and they normally check this at the check in to make sure that you are allowed to travel with a youth fare ticket... no cheating  Smile/happy/getting dizzy !

and as already mentioned UK is not Schengen member...

No need, Daumueller is 100 % correct, Pearson, Passport, Licence etc all is fine. Not a big thing at all
