Standard luggage allowance extends to a single small bag as well is another piece of luggage that can be larger. It is also possible to travel with a bicycle but not every train can accommodate its transport. As such, it is expected for passengers to be aware of which trains are able to do this as these will be marked both online and at the station. A bicycle ticket is required for this and this must be pre-ordered online or at a ticket office. Pets are also allowed on-board. For dogs or cats, they must travel in a transport container, or, if too large, with a muzzle. However, this stipulation does not apply to seeing-eye dogs. A ticket for pets must be booked, which runs that same cost as a single child's ticket. Anyone with mobility requirements should contact Deutsche Bahn in advance.

While rail travel always requires a budget of some kind, there are ways to stretch them further. The first strategy is to remain flexible with dates whenever possible. This will allow travelers to target off-peak departure times that will often be significantly cheaper than those operating during the busiest and therefore most sought-after time periods. Planning a trip as far ahead of time as possible is also a money-saver, as last-day bookings can often be twice as expensive as the same journey booked 14 days in advance. For passengers who know how to fill time on their train ride, choosing a longer journey time will also help to shave cash off the overall cost of traveling between the two cities.
