Carnet Jove

The Carnet Jove is a service provided by the Generalitat de Catalunya for young people aged between 12 and 30, providing advantages and reductions on various services. It is also valid in the other Spanish communities and in more than 30 countries, as it’s the equivalent of the European Youth Card.

The Carnet Jove and its many reductions

The Carnet Jove costs €7.90 per year and offers more than 8000 reductions of all types:

Discounts vary from 10 to 50%. Note what reductions apply, for example not all cinemas in Barcelona offer a discount on presentation of a Carnet Jove.

Obtaining a Carnet Jove and validity

How to get a Carnet Jove?

You can request your card on the Carnet Jove website. You will then need to go collect it in the La Caixa branch that you have specified. You can also go through the whole process in any La Caixa branch.

The Carnet Jove can be requested at any time if you meet two conditions: you are aged between 12 and 30 (inclusive) and you can pay €7.90.

Validity of the Carnet Jove

The length of validity of the Carnet Jove depends on when you request it:

  • If you request it between January and September, it is valid until the 31st of December of the same year.
  • If you request it between October and December it is valid until the 31st of December of the following year.

In either case the Carnet Jove ceases to be valid when you turn 31.
