How to use
Validation
» Passes must be validated within 6 months of issuing date by a railway official in Germany (station’s desk) who also fills in the passport number
» Passes must be validated prior to boarding the first train/ship
» An Inspector on international trains to Germany may also validate a pass when the holder of the German Rail Pass arrives in Germany. In that case, the starting date for validity to be shown on the pass is the date on which it is inspected
» The date of travel has to be entered in the correct way before boarding the first train/ship, by the traveller, in the corresponding box of the calendar

7:00pm rule
» If a direct overnight train starts after 7:00pm on a validated German Rail Pass, the pass holder must enter the next day’s date on the pass, provided it falls within the validity of the pass

Each time before boarding a train, bus or boat, it is important that passengers record their trip in the Travel Report on the Pass cover (in blue or black ink). If passengers travel without having entered the trip in the Travel Report, they risk a fine and payment of a full fare ticket.
