Convenient rail travel with the WESTbahn

The Relax Check-in

With our Relax Check-in, you can easily and quickly check yourself in, avoiding ticket checks by our crew*.

To start the Relax Check-in, simply scan the QR code on the (folding) table at your seat and follow the instructions on your mobile device. After the successful check-in, your seat is reserved for you all the way to your destination station – the display above your seat will switch to reserved and will display your starting and terminating stations after a few moments.

The Relax Check-in is available for all WESTbahn tickets, except for group tickets, tickets from Austrian transportation associations, bicycles, and pet tickets. You can also check in using your KlimaTicket Ö – provided it is linked to your WESTbahn-account.




Collect WESTpunkte & save money

The best part about the Relax Check-in is that you can simultaneously colleckt WESTpunkte (points). You receive one WESTpunkt for every 1 Euro of ticket price. These points can be used online for purchasing tickets and upgrades. Or better yet, use them to buy snacks and drinks in our onaboard WESTcafés – for just 22 WESTpunkte, you can already get a free espresso!

Please note, that collecting WESTpunkte is only possible for WESTbahn customers with a free WESTbahn account.
