Quer-Durchs-Land-Ticket questions

Jump to last reply

I think I know the answer to some of these, but wanted to make sure before I do any planning:

1. Can the Quer-Durchs-Land-Ticket be purchased by a non-German citizen?

2.Can it be purchased fairly easily in train stations such as Frankfurt? What about smaller stations like Frankfurt-Hochst?

3.If purchased with a credit card, does a non-chip American card work; or are there manned booths/ticket offices to use if machines require a chip card?

4.If these tickets are the bargain it looks like they are, then why don't they get much mention, like in travel books and such?

5.Is the biggest disadvantage with these tickets the inability to use the faster (ICE) trains?

(If the possible July trip pans out, I may be wanting to take 2-3 day trips solo from and to Frankfurt and ran across these tickets when exploring tickets and passes. The German Railpass will not be a good choice for me as I won't want 4 days of travel.)
