Frequently asked questions

How do I book a Rail&Fly ticket online?

You can book a Rail&Fly ticket online in the second step of the Germanwings flight booking process. In the “Additional services” section enter the desired departure and destination station under “Rail&Fly”. Then you select whether you want the train ticket for the outward or return journey. Train tickets are booked for the total number of passengers on the booked flight. Enter the card details of a personal identity card (BahnCard, EC or credit card) of one of the passengers that can be used for checking the passenger’s identity on the train. This data is not used as payment for the tickets.

If you didn’t book a Rail&Fly ticket in the second step, you can do so at a later date in the My Germanwings section of our website.
Please remember that if you have a booking for two or more people, you can only then book tickets for all passengers, not on an individual basis. Click here for more information on adding a Rail&Fly ticket at a later date.

You will receive your Germanwings booking confirmation in an e-mail, which will have a clear link to the Rail&Fly online ticket. Please click on the link to retrieve your Rail&Fly online ticket. Once you have clicked on the link the Rail&Fly online ticket should open in A4 format ready to be printed on white paper. We do not send out tickets by post.

Rail&Fly online tickets can only be purchased via the Germanwings website to be used with an international flight reservation from Germany to another European country or from another European country to Germany.

The Rail&Fly ticket cannot be purchased for domestic German flights, connecting flights, or flights from and to Amsterdam, Brussels, Paris, Salzburg, Vienna or Zurich.

You can only book train tickets for routes paid in euros.

Rail&Fly online tickets cannot be booked via Germanwings for flights operated by our partner airlines. The conditions of each respective airline apply.

If your booking consists of an etix® ticket number and/or a Germanwings flight booked via one of our partner airlines or through a(n) (online) travel agency, please contact the respective partner airline or travel agency to book Rail&Fly tickets.
