Hand­ling of the Deutsch­landtick­et un­der travel ex­penses law

Information on the reimbursement procedure of the travel department:

  • Since reimbursement requires full monthly amortization, it is necessary that proof (in the form of a screenshot) of the regular fare be submitted with the travel expense report. If the amortization is only achieved with several business trips in the respective month, these business trips must be submitted bundled for one month with the travel expense reports. Proportional reimbursement is not possible!
  • Additional costs (e.g. further necessary travel by ICE) will be reimbursed as before.
  • The Deutschlandticket can only be purchased privately. Procurement by the department is not possible.
  • Since the Deutschlandticket is purchased as part of a subscription, it is pointed out that in the months in which no or no complete amoritization can be proven, no reimbursement can be made on the part of UPB in the context of business trip accounts.

The Travel Department is available for advice, also in advance when planning business trips.
