  • Acceptance of cards and vouchers is always specific to the point of sale. Before picking up your ticket, it's a good idea to check our Merchant search to see which merchants accept Edenred's payment methods.
  • The Virike benefit is a personal benefit offered by the employer, so it is not possible to pay for tickets with the Virike benefit for friends or family members, for example.
  • Redemption points may charge for redemption. If another redemption fee is added to the ticket price, the redemption office is responsible for this fee.
  • Please note that cultural events defined by the Finnish Tax Administration do not include, for example, cooking courses, wine tastings or visits to amusement parks. You can read more detailed instructions on cultural events that are covered by the tax benefit on the Tax authority´s  website.
