Tickets for children between the age of 6 and up until the age of 15, only costs 2 euros per journey on the WESTbahn network in our Standard Class, when travelling in the company of a family adult (free seat reservation included. This fare is not bookable with our WESTpunkte bonuspoints). Up to 4 family children can be taken along per adult. Family children must be related to an adult with a valid WESTbahn ticket, that includes for example also grandchildren or nieces and nephews. Please note that the family child fare is not applicable to school groups. Book your school group ticket here.

Children under 6 years of age accompanied by a full-paying adult can be taken on your lap free of charge in the Standard Class. Please note that no seat or reservation is included – if a dedicated seat is required, you can simply book a 2 euro family child ticket.

The family child ticket is available through all sales channels or directly on the train at no extra charge. If you would like to travel Comfort- or First Class with your family, the upgrade fare is added to the family child ticket.
