My wife and I will be in Germany for the last couple of weeks in December flying into Frankfurt. We will be using a Flexipass. Rick's train info recommends not buying it online but waiting until we are in Germany. Being an advanced planning type person this causes a certain amount of anxiety. Does anyone know why this recommendation is made especially since it is for sale on the website? I know he says it is a paper ticket but is it because of mailing issues?
Also, with the Flexipass can you make train reservations in advance?
Thank you for any responses provided.
