I will be traveling on my own to Germany in a few days, and will take the train on Deutsche Bahn.

I am 17, and have no credit cards, debit cards, etc. My parents will be booking the journey in advance with their credit card. I just have no idea what valid ID I could use that falls under the requirements, especially if passports aren’t allowed.

  • I assume your parents would not be completely comfortable with that solution but I think carrying their credit card with you should work in practice. – Relaxed Sep 2 '15 at 20:43
  • I also assume that for some reason "get a prepaid card" isn't a valid solution? Here in Italy you can literally get one in minutes. – Federico Poloni Sep 8 '15 at 9:34
