http://www.german-transfer.de

Economy Shuttle EUR 262,00

Exclusive Shuttle EUR 340,60 (this service is comparably to a taxi, taxi would be even more expensive)

travel time 2,5 hrs

train

ICE normal price EUR 118,00

ICE discounted special EUR 58,00

travel time 2:05

You can check for the specials at the DB timetable

Note: the specials are restricted in numbers and are only valid for the booked connection. While normal price tickets are flexible.

Another option are Rail&Fly tickets from your airline

Depends on distance and number of people, might occasionally be true but not for Frankfurt to Freiburg with only 2 travelling.

Airfare cheaper than taxi to the airport (as an Easyjet ad goes) can happen these days!

If you're really interested in saving money, and you happen to be traveling on a weekend, you can get a "happy weekend" ticket for travel of up to 5 people for 18 euros (last time I checked) and it lasts for 48 hours (I think). The only negative-you have to take local trains, so you will be travelling for several hours longer. If you're strapped for cash, though, it might be worth it. You have to buy these tickets from the older machines, and I don't think you can do this online.

> up to 5 people for 18 euros (last time I checked) and it lasts for 48 hours (I think).

That must have been quite some time ago.

The Happy-Weekend-Ticket is now EUR 35,00 and only valid either Sa or Su. Or more exactly

Sa midnight till 3am Su

Su midnight till 3am Mo

(thus at max 27 hours)

> The only negative-you have to take local trains, so you will be travelling for several hours longer.

One of the worst routes for local trains only.

Travel time by local trains will be 4,5 - 5 hrs.

> You have to buy these tickets from the older machines, and I don't think you can do this online.

The old machines mostly don't exist anymore. But you can buy it from the new ones as well. Online is also possible.

Your airline may participate in the Rail&Fly programme bahn.de/international/…rail_fly.shtml.
