What is the ESNcard? Sample ESNcard

ESN issues membership cards called "ESNcard" which are valid in all ESN sections all over Europe (not only in Innsbruck).

With this card you have access to members-only-events (e.g. movie nights), you get discounts for ESN trips and in bars in Innsbruck and you get amazing international discounts at our partners such as Ryanair and Hostelling International (for more information please check www.esncard.org). 

Furthermore, you can benefit from special offers in cities all over Europe.

When you buy the ESN Innsbruck Welcome Package, you get:

  •   your ESNcard
  •   free SIM-card from the mobile phone operator A1 (click here for further information)
  •   Tirol Goodies
  •   10% discount voucher for Flixbus

The ESNcard expires automatically after one year.

I'm no student - can I get the ESNcard as well?

You can get the ESNcard, if you belong to one of the following groups:

  • Erasmus+ students
  • Erasmus+ trainees
  • Erasmus+ International incoming students
  • International incoming students or trainees on a mobility programme, other than Erasmus+
  • International undergraduate or postgraduate full degree students
  • EVS participants
  • ESNers: either active on the Local, National or International Level. They are all members of a section
  • ESN Alumni
  • ESN buddies


Normally our events are also open to everybody, except for some events organized by the ÖH Referat für Internationales where only students of the LFU are admitted. But we'll always mention that in the respective event description.


I already bought the ESNcard in my home town. Can I use it here in Innsbruck?

Of course - as long as it is still valid (it expires automatically after one year). All ESNcards are treated equally, so even if you bought the ESNcard at home in Italy or Spain,..., you can benefit from discounts here in Innsbruck.
