Saver Fare vs Flexifare on Bahn.com

Jump to last reply

Hi, we are going from Goslar to Eisenach in Sept 16
The saver fare range from 29 to 39 E but the Flexifare (Flexpreis) range from 41 to 78 EUR. for one person
The saver fare range from 48 to 58 E for 2 persons
1)Is it correct that one person cost 29 E and 48E for 2 persons buying together at the ticket machine?
So each person only pays 24 E ?
2)Would the saver fare be still available if we just buy at the ticket machine 2 hrs before the journey?
What's the chance of getting the saver tickets this way ,maybe 30% chance ? Becuz we want to have flexible itinearary.
Or saver fare must be bought latest 1/7 or 1 hour before travel and ONLINE ONLY ??
3)l check for fare today 31/5/16 and notice some saver fare become even lower (18 to 25 E)few hrs before departure.So it means we can still buy saver fare at the ticket machine 2 hrs before departure ,is this correct ?
4)For promotion saver fare,the website states--Regional and local trains may not be used for starting and completing journeys.
https://www.bahn.com/i/view/GBR/en/prices/germany/saver-fare_19.shtml

But for The "Sparpreis" (saver fare for Germany) it states --
Regional connecting trains may be used before or after the long distance journey
https://www.bahn.com/i/view/GBR/en/prices/germany/savertickets.shtml

What is the difference between these 2 types of saver fare ??

Because this journey involves RB, ME, ICE, ERX which are regional trains ,correct ?

5)What does RB, ME, , ERX ,HEX stands for ?
l know RB is RegionalBahn.

Thank you very much
