Climb aboard, check in and relax
The "Komfort Check-in" feature is available only through the DB Navigator app and for passengers with mobile or online tickets. The service can be used without a seat reservation. Just board the train, find your seat, check in on your smartphone and validate your digital ticket yourself. This process replaces ticket inspection. The train crew is notified that you have checked in and that you don't need your ticket inspected, even if the crew changes.
The Komfort Check-in feature is now available on all ICE trains throughout Germany, excluding ICEs traveling to and from France. The digital service is also avialable on six Intercity Lines and in some cases in cross-border traffic with the ICE.
