If you have a saver fare ticket, you can only travel on the service indicated on the ticket. Offers are available for ICE/IC/EC connections within Germany. You can use local transport (e.g. RE, RB, IRE and S-Bahn or non-DB trains) to get to/from a long-distance station if you include them in your booking. You are not restricted to travelling on a specific train when using local rail services. However, your journey must be completed by 10:00 am the following day.

BahnCard 25 and 50 holders get a 25% discount

Passengers who purchase a saver fare can also use the City-Ticket. It is now issued as an add-on to the saver fare, depending on your connection.
When booking a saver fare, the City-Ticket will be available separately for a fee depending on the specific departure or destination stop. This is subject to the following conditions:

  •  The departure or destination stop is in one of the approximately 130 City-Ticket towns and cities
  • Your booking includes a journey to or from the long-distance service within the City-Ticket area using local transport

If you indicate in your booking enquiry that you only need DB long-distance trains (e.g. from Cologne Main Station to Berlin Central) and do not require a transfer within the City-Ticket area using local transport, the saver fare ticket will be issued without a City-Ticket.

No. A saver fare ticket does not grant the holder access to a DB Lounge.
