I am sure these questions have been asked before but i couldnt quite find the answers I need.

My first trip is from Germany (my home country) to London. Is this already a travel day? I read on the “travel in your own country” site that outbound and inbound journeys are not extra travel days. 

My second question is if i can travel through Germany during my trip. I am planning on traveling from Paris to the Gardasee. I found a trip with a transition in Munich. Can I take this trip?

Hallo,

nach London wäre ein Fahrttag. Dass der “outbound day” kein extra Fahrttag ist, stimmt. Aber das bedeutet, dass man damit nicht extra fahren kann, sondern dass du an dem Fahrttag auch in Deutschland fahren kannst.

Deutschland durchfahren kannst du zwar, aber dann ist der “inbound day” auch weg und du hast keinen weiteren Fahrttag mehr, um z.B. nach Deutschland zurückzufahren.

Die Grundregel ist: An zweien deiner Fahrttage kannst du auch im Heimatland fahren. Aber nur an zweien…

Ich hoffe, das macht es klarer.

The rules on the 2 in/out days are simple.

On 2 of your flexipass or continuous pass days you can travel in your own country as well as any of the member countries. 

You do not need to leave your country on these days, so you could use them to get to an airport or ferry terminal.

These can be taken at any time during your pass validity, not necessarily on the first and last day.

They are optional so, if like me you live near an airport with low cost flights I fly out and use all my days outside the UK.

They are part of your flexidays - not extra days.

Any transport in your home country will trigger one of these 2 days, and once both have been taken the app will not allow any further travel in your home country.

So crossing Germany from Paris will take one of these days.

Ab P zur jene See-etwa der älteste See die damals zo in jene 50er Jahre von Ferienlustige DE ´entdeckt´ wurde geht es auch sehr jans jut über Swiss/Schweiz-mit als Grossvorteil das mann dann also auch erheblich viel spart wegen dortige Himmelhohe Fahrpreise-und zu sehen gibt es auch viel mehr als mal wieder durch Bayern. Es sei denn-du bist wieder so gespannt auf sparen das mal wieder die NachtZúege herausgespukt wurden-und hast auch noch keine Schlauheit entwickelt um die ebenso Himmelhohe Zuschläge für Direkt züge über FR Grenzen zu meiden.

Und ausserdem ist ja M mit weiss/blau ab ein Paar Wochen wieder so ans feiern dass alles total aus+vollgebucht sei und das HBF voll mit Bierleichen liegt. Ist ausserdem auch noch unter Grossum/neubau.

So if I understand well, I could use my Global Pass to LEAVE my home country Germany by rail twice during the pass validity, there’s no restriction that I need to enter once and leave once?

I’ve already used one outbound trip, if I test book another outbound trip the app seems to accept it… 

Thanks!

Indeed, that's how the app works.
