The year includes many interesting events around Finland. The sports and culture benefit is your ticket to countless cultural experiences. So utilize your Edenred Virike and enjoy culture in 2023!
Virike benefit opens doors to fairs and virtual events
In 2021 we saw a significant change in the taxation of cultural benefits, when the law on the use of sports and cultural benefits for fairs and virtual events entered into force in July 2021. The Virike benefit will be available as a means of payment for fairs whose main content is sport or culture, as well as for real-time virtual events. This versatile benefit therefore now allows you to enjoy cultural experiences from home.
Buy event tickets with the versatile sports and culture benefits
There are no restrictions on the use of the Virike benefit, so for example, you can use it to pay the full amount of a festival or theatre ticket. When you buy a ticket to an event, you should first book it online and then go to an R-Kioski or a ticket sellers' service point to claim it. Alternatively, you can buy your ticket directly from the ticket agent's service point without booking. You can also pay for your event tickets online, if the ticket seller accepts Edenred Virike as an online payment method. For more information on how to buy tickets, click here.
