The most common questions about the best price finder
Our best price finder is a new function on bahn.com, and it provides you with clear, practical information about the ticket prices that our system finds for a specific connection. You can activate this new function by clicking the "Show best prices" box in the travel information section of our website. After the best price finder has been activated, it displays the connections for the day you have selected, with prices listed in ascending order (if available) and grouped by time period.
- Our system may not show prices for certain connections (e.g. transport association services) in the first step even though these tickets are available on bahn.com. These prices are displayed in the next step and can be lower than the fares shown in our best price finder.
- We are unable to show fares for tickets that we do not sell.
By way of information, the connections are all included at the end of the list.
The best price in the travel information section is the day's lowest fare for the selected connection. It is highlighted using a green symbol or green line.
The best price is not a fixed fare or a new fare category. The best price finder is a new feature that lists connections with prices in ascending order (if available) and sorted by time.
Our website does not display the checkbox for activating the function if you use today's date in your search. This happens because a search containing today's date is normally used to find information, not make bookings. Also, fewer connections are normally available, and the price differences are much smaller.
Our best price finder displays more results than the current saver fare finder: super saver fares, saver fares, saver and flexible fares for long-distance trains have been added to tickets for local and international travel.
The best price finder uses a redesigned and clearer layout to display fares. Including it in the travel information section means that this new feature is easy to access.
