ÖBB Vorteilscard

For all those who like to travel flexibly by train.

The ÖBB Vorteilscard is the right choice if you are looking for flexible travel throughout Austria. This card gives you a 50% discount** on every ÖBB standard ticket. The card pays for itself with just a few journeys per year. The Vorteilscard is available in the variants Classic, 66 (only online and mobile), Youth, Senior and Family, through the ÖBB app, in the ÖBB ticket shop, at ÖBB ticket counters and in ÖBB travel agents.

Vorteilscard Comfort: The digital option with more comfort!

The new Vorteilscard Comfort is the ideal offer for those who like to travel economically AND want to reserve their favourite seat on the train. The Card comes with all the usual benefits of the Vorteilscard Classic/66 and offers an additional 50% discount on seat reservations, and all this for only € 86.- for the first purchase, or at an advantage price of only € 76.- when changing from an existing Vorteilscard!

The Vorteilscard Comfort is a purely digital product and works without a plastic card. Simply order online or on a mobile device and easily add it to your account in the ÖBB app. This means you always have the Vorteilscard Comfort conveniently with you on your smartphone.


Please note that you need to provide your Vorteilscard Discount Card number details when buying a ticket. You can conveniently save this information in the app or online in your ÖBB account. This saves you having to re-enter your details when booking via your account in the future.

** Please note that the price of an ÖBB standard single ticket depends on the selected sales channel and the time of booking. The earlier the ticket is purchased, the cheaper it is. When booking online or by mobile, the price is lower than when buying a ticket at the counter or at a ticket machine. The ÖBB Vorteilscard always reduces the price of the ÖBB standard single ticket by 50%.
