If you have a super saver fare ticket for senior citizens, you can only travel on the travel connection indicated on the ticket. Super saver fare tickets for senior citizens are available for ICE, IC/EC services within Germany. You can use local rail services (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 the following day.
Yes, but you have to book local transport when you buy your ticket. Tickets with local transport are available in a super saver fare for senior citizens. However, the offer is not available for local transport connections only.
With the BahnCard 25 and 50 you get a 25% discount.
Passengers who purchase a super saver fare can also use the City-Ticket. It is now issued as an add-on to the super saver fare, depending on your connection.
When booking a super 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.
If a delay of at least 20 minutes is expected at the destination, the journey can be continued on the same route, on a different route or at a later time.
A seat reservation is not automatically included in the ticket. However, it can be booked separately.
For larger luggage, we recommend simply sending it ahead. The luggage will be picked up conveniently at your home. This will make your journey easier – and not just when it comes to boarding or disembarking from the train.
We’ll be happy to provide some advice on the best way to transport your luggage, including how to adjust the transfer time or book a seat near the luggage rack.
