What's the €19.90 ticket?
€19.90-tickets are the cheapest offers for long-distance connections of the Deutsche Bahn. You can travel all over Germany with these cheap train tickets, which have been officially called "Super Sparpreis" since the beginning of August.
For which trains are €19.90 tickets bookable?
In principle, €19.90 tickets can be booked for all routes that contain at least one long-distance train (ICE, IC, EC). A combination of local and long-distance trains is also possible. For purely regional journeys (RE, IRE, RB), the €19.90 tickets are not offered.
How many €19.90 tickets are there?
Unfortunately, Deutsche Bahn does not reveal how many tickets are available or have already been sold for certain trains or routes. Therefore, the earlier you book, the better are your chances of getting a bargain.
How many €19.90 tickets are there for which routes?
Deutsche Bahn does not give an exact number of tickets per route. What is clear, however, is that the tickets per train are contingent, i.e. there is only a limited number of tickets per route. Only Deutsche Bahn knows how high these quotas are. It is therefore worth booking early, before the contingents are fully booked.
When can I book tickets for €19.90 and how long are they bookable?
There is always a certain contingent of €19.90 savings tickets - you just have to find them and look for them early.
When is the best time to book the cheap €19.90 tickets?
There are two things you should keep in mind in order to get the best value for your money: First, you should book as far in advance as possible. Especially for popular routes, weekends and holidays, the bargain tickets are quickly booked out - keyword: Christmas ;)\ Second, you should book best in the morning. Why? Because DB usually unlocks new contingents of cheap tickets overnight. Especially from Sunday to Monday night.
Where can I buy €19.90-tickets?
In addition to Deutsche Bahn, you can also buy the low-cost Super Sparpreis tickets from all official DB ticket partners, e.g. fromAtoB.com, verkehrsmittelvergleich.de and many more.
What is the difference between the savings price and the super savings price?
Super Saver Tickets are excluded from exchange and refund, while Saver Tickets can be cancelled for a fee of €10 (credited in the form of a voucher). In addition, the City Ticket is not included in the Super Sparpreis. In 1st class, the Super Sparpreis also does not include access to the DB Lounges.
Should I reserve a seat?
You can always buy a ticket for every DB train - so there are no fully booked trains at Deutsche Bahn. This has a big advantage and a big disadvantage. The huge advantage is that you can be sure that you can always travel with the train you have chosen. The disadvantage is that at popular times and on popular routes the trains are often well filled. Therefore it is usually worthwhile to book a seat for an extra charge of €4.50.
How much do Super Sparpreis children's tickets cost?
Children up to and including 5 years of age travel free of charge and without a ticket. Children between 6 and 14 years of age travel free of charge when accompanied by their parents or grandparents. In order for your children or grandchildren to be able to travel free of charge, you must specify this when booking.
Are there also super low-cost tickets for 1st class?
Yes! from €29.90 there are also tickets in the first class. Since many bargain hunters don't have that on their screens at all, these tickets are usually not sold out as quickly as second-class tickets. In addition, Upper Class tickets even include a seat.
Missed the train - and now what?
In principle, saver fare and super saver fare are tied to the train, i.e. you are only allowed to travel on the trains that are shown on the ticket. However, if you miss a connecting train through the fault of Deutsche Bahn - sleep and dawdle is not an excuse - then you can take the next equivalent train to continue your journey.\nEquivalent means that you may only take other regional trains as replacements for a cancelled regional express (and no ICE/IC/EC), for an IC/EC only another IC/EC or also regional trains and as replacements for an ICE all long-distance as well as all local trains.
Tip: It is best to have the railway staff confirm the delay in writing. This way you are on the safe side in any case.
Can another person travel with my ticket?
Deutsche Bahn tickets are personal, i.e. they are only valid in combination with your ID document. Unfortunately, you cannot transfer your ticket to another person
