What is the Deutschland Ticket
The 49 euro ticket is the successor of the 9 euro ticket that was introduced this summer in Germany. Just like the 9 euro ticket, you can now enjoy unlimited regional and public transport in Germany for a flat fee of 49 euros. This is supposed to encourage the use of public transport and reduce the use of private cars for travelling. Also, it makes transportation much more affordable to everyone in Germany.
How Much Does It Cost
Like the name suggest, the Deutschland ticket will cost 49 Euros. You can choose between a yearly or monthly subscription.
When and Where Can I buy The 49-Euro Ticket
The ticket is scheduled to be introduced from 01.01.2023. For users who already have a BVG subscription, you do not have to do anything. You will receive a letter from the BVG informing you about the transition. Before the new year, you should receive your new Fahrkarte in the mail.
How to Get a 49 Euro Ticket
The Deutschland-Ticket can be purchased through various channels, including the Deutsche Bahn (DB) website (bahn.com), the DB Navigator app, and DB Travel Centers throughout Germany.

To be eligible for the 49 Euro Ticket, travelers must have an account with the corresponding German railway apps (e.g., Deutsche Bahn, MVG, BVG) and a valid bank account for the monthly cost debit.

Comparing the 49 Euro Ticket to Previous Offers
The Deutschland-Ticket is the successor to the 9 Euro Ticket, which was available only during the summer months of 2022. The 29 Euro Ticket, which could only be used in Berlin’s A and B zones, is no longer valid or available. The Deutschland-Ticket offers more extensive coverage and flexibility, making it an attractive option for travelers in Germany.
You could buy the 9 Euro ticket with the BVG app or Jelbi App earlier this year. It is expected that this should be available for non subscribers this time as well.
