Bahn and hacked credit card

Jump to last reply

I'm in a bit of a pickle here. I've never actually been to Europe, so I'm hoping for some advice from those that have.

For a month long Europe trip (from August to September), I've booked three tickets from bahn.com. These are online tickets that I have printed at home. Bahn requires me to use the credit card that I bought the tickets with as ID on the trains/buses.

My VISA card was hacked, and fraudulent purchases were made on my card. The card has been cancelled, but I still have it.

My question is this: does the conductor just look at the card to see if it matches what is on the ticket, or does he/she actually swipe it?

From my reading of forums, Bahn has an incredibly strict policy on this. If they do swipe I will just have to cancel the tickets I suppose, and buy new ones (incurring a fee and probably higher ticket prices).

Any information is appreciated.
