Rail - Bavaria Day Ticket

Travel all day for €13.80 

Bavaria (capital city: Munich) is the biggest federal state in Germany. It covers an area almost twice the size of Switzerland and has a population nearly three times that of Scotland. From the north west to the south east of the state is over 300 miles.

And yet, you can travel around it to your heart's content for a full day from just €13.80.

You'd do that by buying a Group Bavaria Day Ticket

A good deal for Scotland fans

That could be particularly useful for Scotland fans going to Bavaria for the opening game in Munich. Especially if you have no match ticket, as it will cover all your use of public transport in the region. And if you do have a match ticket, but are staying outside the relatively small Munich transport region and/or for more than the 2 days covered by the match ticket, it could be useful for you too.

The Bavaria Day Ticket is valid from 09:00 (00:00 at weekends) until 03:00 next day. You can use it for travel on all regional trains, all buses, trams, underground and S-Bahn (suburban overground) services (but NOT on long-distance express trains). For one person it costs €29 a day. You can also buy it for a group of up to 5 people. The cost for a group of 5 is €69, equating to €13.80 each.

By comparison, the standard single fare one way between Augsburg and Munich is €18.70, between Regensburg and Munich €36.60 and between Nuremberg and Munich €31.90.

The table below compares the cost per person of a Bavaria Day Ticket for 1 person or a group of 2, 3, 4 or 5 people bought for 1, 2, 3 or 4 days with the cost of each person subscribing instead for a Deutschlandticket for the month of June (cost: €49 each). As you can see, the Bavaria Day Ticket works out better in many scenarios. 

For example, a group of 4 buying a 2-day ticket will pay €29.50 each rather than the €49 each for Deutschlandtickets. 

For a period of 4 days or more, however, the the Bavaria ticket always costs more per person even in a group of 4 or 5 than if each person bought a Deutschlandticket, as the red shading in the table shows:

So, if you're going to be in Bavaria during the Euros and using public transport for 2 or 3 days, it's well worth taking a look at the Bavaria Day Ticket.
