How to book

When booking your journey, simply select the respective city as departure or destination as you would if you were booking a normal flight. You’ll find a combination of trains and flights that match with your search criteria. We also made sure you have enough time at Frankfurt International Airport to arrive and get to Terminal 2 and check in.

Before your departure

You’ll need to check in for your train journey online at www.rail-checkin.com within 72 hours of your train’s departure and print your rail boarding pass. You’ll need to show this to the conductor, along with your ID. Without a rail boarding pass, you will be asked to buy another ticket.

General check-in process

  • Open the website www.rail-checkin.com
  • Enter your name and either your flight e-ticket number or record locator.
  • Choose whether your trip is outbound or inbound. You can add up to 4 passengers if they are using the same train for the entire route and are listed in the same flight booking.
  • Choose your train connection (this is pre-selected for interline travel).
  • Confirm your booking.
  • Check your email inbox and download your train ticket.

During your journey

If you’re flying in Economy Class, your train journey will be in Second Class. When you fly First Class or Business Class, your train travel will be in First Class.

Terms and conditions for your interline journey on Deutsche Bahn
