Third Newsletter for BookCrossing Convention Oslo

75 days – 11 weeks – to go:-)

The Oslo Pass – is it worth it?

You can buy the Oslo Pass from Visit Oslo. The prices for adults are 24 hours: 395 NOK (≈ 45 EUR), 48 hours: 595 NOK (≈ 67 EUR), 72 hours: 745 NOK (≈ 84 EUR). However, we believe in most cases you will be better off paying for each museum etc. , especially if you participate in the tours we have set up as those are already paid for, and just want to go to a few extra museums.

    1. Thanks for asking, coco7. This was more complicated than I was aware of, when it comes to the 7-day ticket.

      I thought there were paper tickets available as well, but I called ruter, and it’s not for the 7-day ticket and 30-days ticket. There are only paper tickets available for the 24 hours ticket and the single ticket.

      The 7-days ticket can only be bought on a travel card or the app on your phone. From september 2016 you have to pay NOK 50 for the travel card, and I was not aware of this.

      As you need to buy a travelcard if you don’t have the app, the cost of the 7-days card will in practice be NOK 50 higher than I first said. I update/correct the information in the article.


      1. Thank you so much for clarifying and even calling ruter!

        Some more helpful information I found on the website:
        Group tickets on travelcards
        You can have tickets for an entire group on one travelcard. Note that you must travel together so that everyone can present a valid ticket in the event of a ticket inspection.
        You can buy group tickets at the ticket machines, in kiosks and at our service points. The group ticket is a collection of single tickets on one and the same travelcard. Note that when you validate the travelcard, all tickets will be activated at the same time.

        We are traveling as a family of 4, so it’s good to know we won’t need 4 travelcards as well.

    1. We bought our 7-day-tickets at the airport yesterday. The website information seems to be wrong, we had to have them on 4 separate cards. But they didn’t charge for the cards, we just paid the ticket price.
