If you’re among the many people who are planning to travel in Europe this summer, we’ve spotted this offer that could really interest you. Because let’s just say that unlimited train travel for a month for €9 isn’t something we see that often. So since we always want to help you travel more for less, we absolutely had to tell you about it.
As we often say it, some of the more popular places are often much more expensive than some of the lesser-known ones. But there are still ways to be mindful of your budget even in less budget-friendly destinations and even during the revenge travel craze.
And this offer allows you to reduce your travel expenses at least!
So, if you’re thinking of going to Germany this summer (or if this offer makes you want to go there), know that you can visit the country as you wish for an entire month for only €9 in July or August (that’s ≈ C$12).
Here’s everything you need to know about this offer.
Basics of the €9 unlimited train travel offer
This summer, you can travel as much as you want for a month for €9 all over Germany by means of local transport, i.e. buses, trams, local (city) trains and regional trains.
Here are some important notes on the offer:
- It includes local and regional trains (RB, RE, U-Bahn, S-Bahn), as well as buses and trams
- It excludes long-distance trains (IC, EC, ICE), but you can reach the same destinations more slowly with the included trains
- The pass is valid for 1 month
- From the 1st day of the month to the last day of the month, not from a date of your choice
- It’s free for children under 6
- It’s valid in 2nd class only, not in 1st class
- No seat reservations are possible
Here are the details.
Details of the €9 unlimited trains offer
Normally, we always recommend using Omio to compare train prices (you always have to compare in the world of travel) or Eurail for a pass that covers multiple countries.
But Germany’s €9 unlimited trains offer is exceptionally good!
This includes trains that cover the whole country (RB, RE, U-Bahn, S-Bahn), buses, and trams. And yes, it also includes public transport within the different cities of the country (but as the website suggests, it’s always best to check with the local bus companies yourself — as any savvy traveler, it’s always good to take things into your own hands and check things for yourself).
So this means that faster long-distance trains (IC, EC, ICE) and long-distance buses are not included, but you can still go anywhere in the country with what’s included for €9. It’s just slower on long distances.
Unless you really want to go fast, and if you can be the least bit flexible, it’s probably worth it to pay so little for traveling in this popular country.
Plus, it’s a great way to really connect with the destination and the people there, to experience a more authentic trip as we like to do. And to travel more slowly, the famous “slow travel.”
In fact, many cities and destinations around the world are implementing incentives like this to attract travelers — one example closer to home is Québec City’s tourism office offering free public transportation to hotel guests in the city.
After more than 2 years, it’s no wonder so many people want to get on the revenge travel trend and enjoy it fully.
Germany is an expensive country, but it’s also a fascinating one. We’ll soon be sharing an article with the best destinations to help you see as much as possible if you take advantage of this offer!
