How can I use the BahnCard 50?

The BahnCard 50 gives you a BahnCard discount of 50 per cent on flexible fares and 25 per cent on 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 50 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.
