How can I use the BahnCard 25?

The BahnCard 25 gives you a BahnCard discount of 25 per cent on flexible, saver and super saver fares within Germany in the corresponding coach class. The chargeable City-Ticket for the saver fare and super saver fare is not discounted.

You can use the ICE and IC/EC trains, ÖBB Nightjet (reservation may be required) and local transport (IRE, RE, RB, S-Bahn).

Many transport associations, bus operators and private rail operators also grant BahnCard 25 discounts.

If the BahnCard is recognised on the desired connection, the discount is automatically deducted at the time of booking. You can use the digital BahnCard in the same way as the plastic BahnCard for the various regional fares and transport associations.

Whether the BahnCard is recognised in the respective state tariffs or transport associations is regulated by their tariff and transport conditions.
