City Summer Cards
Gothenburg, Malmö, Stockholm and Uppsala have worthwhile tourist cards that get you into their major attractions and offer parking, travel on public transport and discounts at participating hotels, restaurants and shops.
Hostel & Student Cards
A Hostelling International (HI) card means cheaper beds in STF hostels, mountain stations and cabins. You can join the STF at hostels and tourist offices in Sweden (membership adult/16 to 25yr/6 to 15yr/family 295/150/30/450kr); membership is good for one year.
The most useful student card is the International Student Identity Card (www.isic.org), which offers discounts on many forms of transport (including some airlines, international ferries and local public transport) and on admission to museums, sights, theatres and cinemas.
Seniors normally get discounts on entry to museums and other sights, cinema and theatre tickets, air tickets and other transport fares. No special card is required to receive this discount, but show your passport if you are asked for proof of age (the minimum qualifying age is generally 60 or 65 years).
