You can enter personal seat preferences in your user account under "preferences" (see screenshot). We pass this information on to Deutsche Bahn at the time of booking. We recommend that you only select the preference that is most important to you. Deutsche Bahn will only consider your preferences if all preferences can be met.
Preference stored in the user account: Large room with table + window + mobile phone area

If you are not satisfied with the seat that Deutsche Bahn reserved for you, you can exchange the seat reservation free of charge for one time. Click here to find out how you exchange your seat reservation.
At Lanes & Planes, It is preset that you automatically make a seat reservation when you book a train.
If you do not wish this, tick the box "Book without seat reservation (not recommended)". (See screenshot above).
If you have made several individual bookings and the travelers want to sit together, you are welcome to contact the support team. We will then change the seat reservation and reserve seats side by side.
