"Booking your train ticket online" Germany Transportation Tip by christine.j

Germany Transportation: 318 reviews and 288 photos

If you book your ticket online, register first. You can start the process of booking and will be asked to register later, but from my experience this is when the site crashes and you can start all over again. This not only happened to me, but to several other people as well.
So register first, get your password and then start booking your ticket.

Your print-out is the ticket, no need to exchange it to another ticket at the train station.

Important: When checked in the train,you have to show the very same credit card which you used for booking. You can book for others as well, as long as you are part of the group.

Type: Train
