I'm looking over transportation options for our upcoming trip (this July). I ran across the regional tickets and they look like a perfect fit for the days we will be hopping around within regions. I have 2 main questions:
1 - can I buy more than 2 days worth? I'd like to have 3 days worth in Bayern. When I got to Bahn.de to buy the regional pass it gives me the option to add a second day but not a third. Does anyone know if this is possible? Should I just purchase the 2 days, then go in again and purchase the 3rd?
2 - It's scary when it says it covers most buses and regional trains (I understand it doesn't cover ICE, IC or EC). I found a few images that show the towns it covers, but they don't include some of the towns on my itinerary. Does anyone know where I can find a map or something, to make sure these will be covered?
Here's the image for the Bayern: https://bahnland-bayern.de/de/tickets/bayern-ticket
And for the RP: http://www.vrminfo.de/fileadmin/data/pdf/2011/RPTicket-Karte.pdf
And here is my itinerary for the days I'd want to be using each ticket:
Oberammergau to Reutte in Tirol (and back)
Oberammergau to Munich
Munich to Nuremberg (I intially had this as a fast train, but I can take it regionally I assume so that it's covered with the regional pass)
Nuremberg to Reichenschwand (and back)
Mainz to Boppard
Oberwesel to Sankt Goar
Sankt Goar to Kamp-bornhofen
Kamp-Bornhofen to Braubach
Braubach to Stolzenfels
Stolzenfels to Ehrenbreistein
Ehrenbreistein to Rhens
I really appreciate any help on this! I have been researching my butt off, but I can't seem to find very many details on these regional tickets. Thank you!
