An app currently offers the popular 49-euro ticket ten euros cheaper. However, if you want to save money, you have to be quick – the offer will expire soon.
Frankfurt – Since 1 May, travellers have been able to use the 49-euro ticket. It applies monthly to local public transport - this includes underground and suburban trains, trams, trams, city and regional buses, but also regional trains. With a price of 49 euros, the ticket is significantly more expensive than its predecessor, the 9-euro ticket. Nevertheless, it enjoys great popularity, especially among commuters, as it is much cheaper than previous monthly tickets. Thanks to a special offer, consumers can now get hold of the ticket at an even lower price.
Save ten euros on your Deutschlandticket with mo.pla's "digital premium"
The mo.pla app currently offers the ticket for only 39 euros. The app, which specialises in nationwide mobility services, is available as a free download on both Android and Apple devices. Users can use the app to conveniently call on-demand buses and taxis, for example, but also to purchase tickets for public transport online. This is also the case with the 49-euro ticket.

At the launch of the Deutschlandticket, the provider launched the "Digital Premium" campaign. "Mobility in Germany is going digital. Secure your reward at the start," advertises the app. Consumers who buy their Deutschlandticket via mo.pla receive a one-time discount of ten euros for the first month. However, the offer is only valid for a short time: the digital premium expires on 31 May.
The 49-euro ticket can also be paused via the app
Buying the 49-euro ticket via mo.pla has another advantage: with the "last-minute function", the ticket can be cancelled up to 24 hours before it expires. Since the ticket is only offered as a subscription, other providers often require cancellation by the 10th calendar day of the current month – otherwise the 49-euro ticket will be extended by another month. If you don't want to use your Deutschlandticket for a certain period of time, for example due to holidays, you can also take a break via mo.pla. "As flexible as you are. The Deutschlandticket with the pause button," explains the provider.
Employees can also take advantage of a special discount. The 49-euro ticket can also be used as a job ticket for 34.40 euros. As a rule, long-distance buses and long-distance trains such as ICE, IC and EC are not included in the subscription. (tt)
