Long-distance rail travel will increase by an average of almost five percent from mid-December. The prices for the Bahncards 25, 50 and 100 are also affected, as the group announced. The Supervisory Board was informed of the changes beforehand.
The saver and super saver prices, on the other hand, remain unchanged. The reservation costs for seats also remain the same. "Like many other companies, DB is forced to react to the massive price increases by adjusting prices," it said. "For regional transport, the German tariff association had already announced an average price adjustment of 4 percent at the beginning of September."
The price increases will come into effect when the timetable changes on December 11th.
