Any German Train experts out there? I need a bit of help!

Hello,

We will only be using the train from FRA airport to Wurzburg, and then from Bamberg back to FRA airport.

I found this discount on the www.bahn.de website.
http://www.bahn.de/-S:4OBxCN:dsHrzdN..._advance.shtml

It is called the Savings fare 25 and Savings fare 50, for roundtrip train travel. Since our train from Bamberg stops and switches in Wurzburg, we effectively have RT travel to and from FRA--Wurzburg. Since we would be staying over the weekend, it appears we could get 50% off the proce of our tickets.

We will be traveling from and to FRA airport on 2/11 and 2/15. I know there is a 3 day advance purchase requirement to get this discount. Unfortunately, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to purchase it!!!

Can anyone help?

Oh dear, I can't make the link post properly...
I will try it again and put a space where I think the problem is.

Go to the schedule page:
http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/e

Departure station is frankfurt(m) flughafen fernbahnhof
Arrival station is Wurzburg

Fill in the dates and times of your outward and return journeys. Bear in mind these reduced fares are limited to a specific train; allow plenty of time in case your flight is late.

Select the number of travellers.

You will be taken to another page where you select your outward journey.

Then you go to a page where you select your return journey, and there should be a column "savings fares" Click under this column.

There are a limited number of seats on each train sold at these special fares, so you might not get it at this late date.
