    • your electronic ID card
    • your MoBIB card (if you already have one)
    • your completed school certificate if you are 18+ (no school certificate required if you are under 18)

  • The majority of your train pass and of your supplement is legally required to be reimbursed by the employer of the private sector. So you can take unlimited trains between home and office for an average of 40,43% of the cost of a 2nd class pass. If your employer enters into a third party payer agreement for commuting with SNCB, you only have to pay your own part at the time of purchase and no longer have to advance the full amount.
  • Free travel to work? For employees from the private sector, there is the possibility to combine a free train pass with a free STIB/MIVB supplement. This depends on what your employer offers. To travel to work free of charge, your employer needs to conclude a third-party payer agreement for commuting with SNCB.
  • If your employer has concluded a third-party payer agreement for the parking with SNCB, you can also park entirely free of charge in a parking at the station (subject to availability).
  • Contact your HR or mobility manager for the possibilities.

To purchase or renew a Student Season Ticket and/or a Student Multi, a school certificate is required if you reach the age of 18 during the validity of your subscription. 

What is a valid school certificate?

This certificate must contain the same data as your subscription (first and last name, date of birth, school period and train station corresponding to your school or traineeship) and must be signed by your school.

The following documents are accepted:

  • A proof of enrolment form, completed and signed by your school
  • Certificate from your school proving that you are attending that school or place of traineeship during the validity of your subscription
  • Certificate of enrolment (after payment of the enrolment fee) is valid as a school certificate

The following documents are not accepted:

  • School certificate from a school far from one of the train stations of your subscription
  • School certificate whose dates of attendance do not correspond to the dates of validity of your subscription
  • pre-registration form with payment slip
  • Student card

If the proof of enrolment is invalid, you will be informed by email. We will cancel your validation and your season ticket will be deleted from your MoBIB card. You will be refunded the full amount if the validation period has not yet begun. If the validation period has already begun, a €10 administration fee will be retained.

How to obtain a valid school certificate?

There are 2 possibilities:

  • You can ask your school’s administration to fill in our template of proof of enrolment
  • Your school provides you directly with a valid certificate that corresponds to your subscription (first and last name, address, date of birth and school period for which you are registered)
