Does the BahnCard 25 get you discounts outside of Germany?

Does the BahnCard 25 get you discounts outside of Germany?

Just curious. It isn't pricey. I could get a 1-month subscription (I have a 4-week trip coming up) and if other rail companies accept it, it'd be very worth it. If you know where discounts are available, please advise!

Krist, I am sorry - but this is COMPLETELY wrong (except for the bit about France).

There is no separate Railplus card in Germany. It's included in your Bahncard.

And I am 100% sure about that because I have a Bahncard 25 and the majority of my train trips are international ones. And if you look at the link that I posted in #4 you will see that the very first paragraph confirms this. (For some reason the link talks about "Flexpreis" but I can confirm that the discount is in fact applied to all tickets. I paid less than 50 Euro for a first class ticket from Lübeck to Zürich last month)

Hi Krist and Aviatrix, I have a BahnCard50, I want to go to Brugg AG from Stuttgart. There is a train from Karshule to Basel (ICE 371). After that I have to switch to the SBB train (IR36) to go to Brugg AG. In that case, does my bahn card will give me 50% discount or will it be ineffective for this trip ? Do you know anything about that ?

With your bahncard you will get 25% off on the Swiss part of the trip if you buy this as a through ticket.

At this link it is exactly all laid out: https:/…tee_alliance.shtml

I couldn't find it in English but use Google translate.
