Business Discount & Product Bonus

The new bonus programme for 2021

There’s good news for the new year: From January 2021, ÖBB business customers will be able to benefit from our new business discount and a product bonus programme.*

The new ÖBB business conditions remain turnover-dependent, but now comprise two modules:

  • Business discount: For all companies with any turnover in their business account
  • Product bonus: For companies with an annual turnover of € 50,000 or more

The previous ÖBB annual bonus will expire at the end of 2020 and will be replaced by the new model from January 2021. The frequent traveller bonus for 2020 will be settled and credited as usual.

Here you can see at a glance what benefits you can expect at each level:

How does the bonus classification system work?

The new ÖBB Business discount is based on the ÖBB turnover in the business account within a defined period of time. This observation period runs for 12 months, from 01 November to 31 October, and determines the discount level for the entire subsequent calendar year.
For example, the turnover for the period 01.11.2020 to 31.10.2021 determines the discount from January 2022 to December 2022.

Your company's classification is automatically determined afresh each year and is valid from the beginning of January.

Classification for 2021

We will use the turnover from 2019 for the classification in the first year, i.e. the business conditions from January 2020. If the turnover from 01.11.2019 to 31.10.2020 was higher than the annual turnover in 2019, this figure will be taken into account.**
