Travel within Germany and Europe in a group at affordable prices!
Are you planning to travel within Germany in a group? Then we have the perfect ticket for you! At DB, six people traveling together are already considered a group.
DB Bahn offers two different tickets for groups. If you want to travel with a group within Germany you need the group discount ticket ("Gruppe&Spar"). If you decide to travel to neighboring countries the saver fare for groups ("Sparpreis Gruppe") is the ticket of your choice.
Please read about the conditions below.
You’ll get up to 70% discount on long-distance ticket prices compared to standard fares. With the maximum discount, a "Gruppe&Spar-70" offer, you’ll never pay more than 43.70 euros per person one-way, no matter how far you travel. The ticket is available for connections within Germany and to other European countires. When you purchase your ticket, just decide on which train connections you’ll travel on and on which date.
