What's changed?

We have lowered our prices permanently and simplified our ticket choices.

More affordable, more flexible and easier

The most important aspects of our new pricing are the permanent reduction of ticket prices and simplified ticket choices. We want to make train travel more affordable and purchasing tickets easier for you. That’s why we have discontinued the tickets that were considered confusing and only kept the essentials.

New tickets and additional services:

The Saver ticket is always the most affordable choice for all passengers on all routes. Saver tickets are sold in limited quantities and they become available for purchase 60 days before departure. Saver tickets cannot be purchased on-board trains.

Basic tickets are normal price tickets used in Eco Class. Children (4–16 yrs), students and pensioners as well as conscripts and persons in non-military service on furlough are given discounts on Basic ticket prices.

You can also purchase any additional services you want. You can book a seat on the upper deck of a new InterCity DuettoPlus restaurant car for just 3–11 €, depending on the length of your trip.

Previously, access to Extra Class required the purchase of an expensive Flexible ticket. Now you can enjoy the comforts of Extra Class, such as complimentary coffee and periodicals, for just an extra 5-17 €, again, depending on the length of your trip. You can bring your pet or bike along for an extra 5 €.

Booking any other seat is still free.

Which tickets are being discontinued?

We have discontinued the Flexible ticket for Extra Class and given you the control over the flexibility of your ticket. Both Saver and Basic tickets can now be modified. You can change your travel date or train for only 5 €. The difference between the ticket prices (if any) will also be charged. If you wish, you can also purchase cancellation insurance for 10 € allowing you to receive a full refund on your ticket if you are unable to travel.

Our customers told us that the terms and conditions of the Family ticket were complicated, so the Family ticket has also been discontinued. From now on, the price paid per children no longer depends on the size of the party travelling. Children (4-16 yrs) receive a 40 % discount off the normal price for Basic tickets, multi-tickets, season tickets, seat bookings and sleeping compartments. Children under 4 years of age travel free of charge without a seat booking, when accompanied by an adult, pensioner or student.

Even though we have also discontinued the Advance ticket, you can still reap the benefits of booking early thanks to our new Saver ticket.

Commuting to work

The single-ticket prices for multi-tickets and season tickets, which are especially popular among commuters, have now dropped considerably.

Multi-tickets and season tickets

Travel even more affordably.

Multi-tickets and season tickets now more affordable for all trains

Our popular multi-tickets are now even more affordable and can be used on all trains.

The 10 or 30-trip multi-ticket is the cheapest choice for passengers travelling frequently on the same route. When travelling with a multi-ticket, you can book a seat free of charge in Eco class 60 days before departure. Your ticket will remain valid for six months from the start date you choose. Multi-tickets may also be used by multiple persons.

The season ticket is the cheapest choice for passengers, such as commuters, travelling nearly every weekday on the same route. An even better reason to leave your car at home. You can purchase season tickets for periods of 14–365 days. The longer the period, the cheaper the price per day. There are quota seats on the most popular commuter trains for passengers with a season ticket.
