Frequently asked questions

Are there seat reservations?

Which trains can I take?

What happens in the event of delays?

If a train is delayed meaning that you will arrive more than 20 minutes late to your final destination, you can take another train on the same route or on another route to the same final destination without needing to buy another ticket.

Do children get cheaper tickets?

The usual rules of the Deutsche Bahn also apply to children when it comes to the Saver Fare Europe and Super saver fare Europe: children up to 5 years of age travel for free, and you can take children or grandchildren up to 14 years free of charge if they are stated on the ticket.

Why can't I find a ticket?
