I will be studying in Germany this fall. I would like to get the discounted student <27 BahnCard 25, but I'm having difficulty. First, the website won't let me get to the website to order without an address in Germany (though it will let me buy the full price one!). Second, I cannot find information regarding if you must show proof of being a student or of being a student in Germany. Does anyone know about this? I don't want to say I'm a student and not actually qualify! Finally, I saw some mentions online of retroactively getting the student discount – is this possible? If so, how does this work and what is the time limit for this?
It is starting to seem worth the difference in price to get the full price card rather than spend so much time on this! (Plus, immediate booking!)
Thanks in advance!
