Deutsche Bahn has a long tradition of issuing a special, inexpensive all-inclusive ticket in cooperation with supermarkets: DB has already cooperated with the Lidl ticket or the Aldi ticket in recent years. However, these tickets were only sold for a few days. In contrast, the Edeka no-matter.where ticket is apparently not only intended as a short-term sales campaign, but will also enable long-term cheap ICE travel.

▶︎ For the first time, Deutsche Bahn is cooperating with Edeka and is bringing a flat-rate ticket to supermarkets that has never existed before: it has a longer sales period until March 2023 and a validity for train travel until December 2023. In contrast to the Aldi ticket, the ticket can also be used on any day; at Aldi, no trips were possible on Friday.

Where can you buy the Edeka no matter where ticket?

You can purchase a no-matter-where ticket in all participating stores of the Edeka network. These include the Edeka supermarkets themselves, but also Marktkauf, Budni, nah & gut and trinkgut.

It will probably be a while before the tickets are available as gift cards at all ticket offices. It is to be expected that the “no matter where” tickets will not really be available as gift cards in all Edeka stores in Germany until August.

▶︎ Unfortunately you will not be able to purchase no-matter-where ticket and any Netto Marken-Discount, which also belongs to the Edeka Group.

3 limitations of the Edeka no-matter-where ticket (egal wohin ticket)!

The Edeka no-matter-where ticket (egal wohin Ticket) sounds like a top option for anyone looking for cheap ICE train tickets. However, you should be aware of the following limitations.

Before redeeming your your Edeka booking code for an ICE ticket you should remember that:

1. Edeka train ticket cannot be redeemed for all train connections

A quota applies to the Edeka no-matter-where ticket. This means that the ticket will not be offered on trains that are already heavily used. The aim is to prevent heavily booked trains from having to be cleared. Therefore, customers should switch to trains that can be booked in the system. This can be an earlier or later train on the same desired travel day for the same route. In addition, you must have booked the ticket at least 2 days before the desired trip.

2. No advance check is possible with the Edeka train ticket

You first buy the booking code at the Edeka checkout and can then enter it at to check whether you can still use the ticket for your desired connection. Since there is no advance availability check and the contingents that apply to the Edeka ticket are not generally known, the purchase is marked with a question mark.

3. No cancellation or exchange possible

Once the Edeka booking code has been redeemed for a ticket, it cannot be canceled or exchanged, as would be possible with a saver price ticket for a fee of €10. In the event of a delay or cancellation of the train, regular passenger rights apply; in this case the ticket will be valued at 19 euros. A BahnCard discount or collecting BahnBonus points is not possible with the Edeka no matter where ticket.
