VRM guest ticket

The ticket for lodging establishments

  • Use public transport free of charge when staying overnight
  • Valid in the VRM area and parts of Hesse

Establishments offering accommodation within the VRM (Rhine-Main public transport association) area which participate in the VRM guest ticket programme will provide you with a special benefit during your stay! You will receive a VRM guest ticket from your accommodation provider.

This ticket entitles the holder to use local public transport in the VRM area free of charge. One guest ticket must be carried per person. Please note that guest tickets are not accepted on the ferries.

The VRM guest ticket is valid for the duration of your stay in the VRM area and the western area of the Rhein-Main-Verkehrsverbund (RMV area 63)*. Only the data entered by your host is valid.

Your individual VRM guest ticket is not transferable; only you personally may use the benefits of the ticket during your stay.

The VRM guest ticket cannot be purchased. You can only receive it through your host.

Please carry the guest ticket and the information sheet, which you can download below, with you at all times during your stay - as well as a valid photo ID document.

Since August 1st, 2021, the VRM guest tickets are also valid for trips to the Hessian train stations Lorchhausen, Lorch, Assmannshausen, Rüdesheim am Rhein, Geisenheim, Oestrich-Winkel and Hattenheim. Overnight guests with a VRM guest ticket can use all buses and trains in the so-called "RMV area 63", which includes the municipalities of Lorch, Rüdesheim, Geisenheim and Oestrich-Winkel, without additional payment.


This VRM guest ticket logo can be used by all participating accommodation providers on their homepage and in information brochures.

Please note these conditions for the guest ticket.

Remember also: when leaving the VRM area by bus and train, you must buy a so-called connecting ticket (except in the western area of the Rhein-Main-Verkehrsverbund (RMV area 63)). To better identify the area of validity, you will find the rail network diagram printed above.
