Greetings all! This will be my first time using Deutsche Bahn, and am figuring with the busy Christmas season, it's essential to get things squared away ahead of time instead of trying to buy tickets at the time of departure.
So in navigating the DB website, I'm not entirely sure of how their fare options work--I see they offer two different prices, the "Standard Fare" and "Savings Fare." So I gather that the "Standard" price is for any train/EC bus, and the "Savings" fare is only for a specific train/bus. But in clicking the "I" info graphic for "Savings Fare" they mention something about "Combination only possible with BahnCard 25." Does that mean the Savings only applies when you buy the BahnCard?
Also, I'll be travelling from the Frankfurt airport to Nuremburg--they offer as options Frankfurt(Main) and Frankfurt (Main) hbf; I understand the hbf stands for the Hauptbahnhof (main train station), but does Frankfurt (Main) mean the airport?
And how much time should I give myself to exit off the plane, gather luggage from baggage claim and traverse across the airport to the train platforms?
Thanks so much!
