Train term tranlation

I went on the German railway website, put an itinerary in and under price it says "95,10 EUR (Res. Info)". Am I to assume 95 is 95 Euro? What does the , mean after the 95 and what is the 10?

The , after the 95 is equivalent to our decimal in $95.10.

You need to watch Rick's travel tips video. The Europeans use a comma for a decimal point (€95,10 is 95.10 Euro), and a decimal point for a comma ($10.000 is $10,000). Their 1 looks much like our 7, but with a drouping top bar. That is why they use a line through the seven to avoid confusion.

So, 95,10 EUR is 95 EUR, 10 Cent.

Yes, it does mean 95.l0 euros. The European way is to put a comma where Americans put a period. And vice versa, so if it says 100.000 - it means 100,000. Also pay attention to the dates - day first, then month. Also, the time in Europe is what's called here military time. All these things were so confusing to me when I came to US, but after so many years here I really have to stop and think to figure it out the old conutry way.
And don't forget, it is not polite to call people by their first names. So it is Frau Meyer rather than Helga, and Herr Schmidt rather than Peter:)
