I'm trying to book a train ticket on from Saarbrücken to Bonn. If I try searching "nur Nahverkehr", suggests the "Saarland-Ticket". It seems like this might be valid in the Rhineland-Palatinate as well, and from there I guess some nearby cities, but I can't find a description of exactly where it is valid.

What area is covered by Deutsche Bahn's "Saarland-Ticket"?

According to a PDF on the Saarland- and Rheinland-Pfalz-Ticket have the same validity: practically all regional routes inside the Saarland and Rhineland-Palatinate, as well as a few into neighbouring states. The PDF lists all routes where the ticket is valid.

According to the DB website, the Saarland-ticket is valid in:

Alle Nahverkehrszüge, Verkehrsverbünde sowie fast alle Linienbusse im Saarland und in Rheinland-Pfalz

So all local trains, metropolitan public transport and most buses in Saarland and Rhineland-Palatinate. Conversely, the Rheinland-Pfalz-Ticket is also valid in Saarland.

I guessed as much. The part that I was confused about (and isn't mentioned on the description of the ticket) is that it is also valid for some cities near the border of Rhineland-Palatine, including Bonn. – Max Apr 26 '14 at 14:36
