Save on Saturday train travel in Germany with Samstags-Tickets
If you can plan your long-distance travel within Germany for a Saturday, Deutsche Bahn has a new special for you. Marketed for “shopping excursions,” the ticket starts at €49 for one person (for a roundtrip); add just €10 per person for up to four more people (€89 for five passengers means each person pays just €17.80 for their ticket!).
In order to get this amazing price, you must meet the following conditions:
• Travel on Saturdays only, between now and the middle of December 2013;
• Whether or not you actually travel roundtrip, your ticket must be booked for a roundtrip on that single Saturday;
• Travel (for the entire group) must be booked at least three days in advance;
• Subject to availability.
