BahnCard 25, 50 & 100: Travel and save
More convenient and cheaper travel with the BahnCard the more you travel, the more you save.
With a BahnCard 25, you save 25% on Deutsche Bahn's flexible and saver fares. Holders of a BahnCard 50 receive a discount of 50% on flexible fares and 25% on long-distance (ICE and IC/EC) saver fares within Germany. With the BahnCard 100 you pay a lump sum once and can then travel on any train without a ticket.
All three BahnCards involve a subscription and are available for 2nd and 1st class. The cards offer various other attractive benefits such as the City-Ticket for local transport, a credit card function and discounts with selected partners.
