Comparison of Abo-Monatskarte vs. Deutschlandticket

Is the Deutschlandticket worth it for me or should I stick with my monthly travel pass?

For commuters who use more than one tariff zone in the VVO every day, the Deutschlandticket is usually worth it. If you have a monthly travel pass for one tariff zone, e.g. for the Dresden tariff zone, and take advantage of the benefits of monthly travel passes (e.g. taking bicycles/dogs or other people with you, as well as transferability), the monthly travel pass could remain the cheaper ticket for you.

In addition, one of the planned additional tickets (see point Validity) could be worthwhile for you.

The overview will help you compare the tickets:

Journey with bicycle or dog beyond the VVO

If you are travelling with your bicycle beyond the VVO, you will need a local transport day ticket for bicycles (Deutschlandtarif) at a price of € 6.00 (as of 13 December 2020) in addition to the Deutschlandticket.

If you travel with your dog beyond the VVO, larger dogs count as passengers and are charged like an adult person (booking under the term "dog" instead of a passenger. Small dogs (up to the size of a domestic cat) can travel free of charge in the transport container.

Will the existing range of tickets continue to exist, such as day tickets or the Bildungsticket?

Yes, all tickets such as single tickets, day tickets, weekly tickets and (subscription) monthly tickets according to the VVO tariff as well as the education ticket and trainee ticket will continue to be offered.

Can I make use of customer guarantees?

No, passengers with the Deutschlandticket cannot make use of the customer guarantees that exist in the VVO due to the high discount. Passengers with the Deutschlandticket are entitled to the applicable European passenger rights.   

How long will the Germany ticket (Deutschlandticke) be available?

The policy aims to offer the Deutschlandticket on a permanent basis. The introduction period for the Deutschlandticket is set for two years. After that, a decision will be made on how to proceed.

Why was the tariff adjustment implemented on 1 April 2023?

A tariff adjustment of the VVO tariff on 1 April 2023 was unfortunately essential due to the sharp rise in costs. The fare adjustment was decided by the representatives of the ZVOE in December 2022.
