The Supervisory Board was informed of the changes beforehand. According to this, Deutsche Bahn will increase the so-called flex prices by an average of almost seven percent from December 11th. The prices for the three Bahncard subscriptions, with which passengers receive a discount of 25, 50 or 100 percent per journey, will increase by 4.9 percent.

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 Germany 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. (dpa)
