Bahncard 100 / tickets & seat reservation

With a Bahncard 100, you can travel flexibly and free of charge for one year, so it is not necessary to purchase an additional ticket here, unless the journey also takes you abroad (e.g. Austria, Switzerland).

The Bahncard 100 "is" the ticket. It is important to always carry the Bahncard 100 with you in order to present it together with an official photo ID during ticket inspections. It also always includes a City-Ticket and is recognized for both local and long-distance travel.

  • For international travel with Deutsche Bahn (crossing borders), you can store your Bahncard 100 in your user profile and use it for bookings. The discount for the portion in Germany is calculated directly and deducted according to the conditions.
  • For domestic travel with Deutsche Bahn, the Bahncard 100 cannot currently be used. No results will be displayed when querying the system. It will only be possible through a later introduction of "booking seats only".

Upon request, we are happy to book a paid seat reservation for domestic travel for you.

Seats cost per route/journey:

  • 1st class: 6.50 EUR
  • 2nd class: 5.20 EUR

It is also possible to upgrade a 2nd class Bahncard 100 to 1st class. If you have a 2nd class Bahncard 100 but would like to travel in 1st class for part of your journey and a 1st class booking is also permitted in accordance with the travel guidelines stored in the Lanes & Planes tool, you are welcome to book this service via our Concierge Service. Simply send us an e-mail to

The above also applies to the ÖBB Klimaticket (different prices, inclusive services, and conditions).

Please note that the above information is not valid for DB bookings.

If you have any questions, the Lanes & Planes support team is available to assist you.
