Frankfurt airport to Mainz hbf by train

I will be landing in Frankfurt airport and travelling by train to Mainz hbf and there will be 4 of us going. I have checked the bahn.de website and after doing the clicking the bahn.de website it shows under the standard fares column that fares not available. What does this mean?

Does anybody know how much a train ticket would costs from Frankfurt airport to Mianz costs? Is there any group ticket similar to the Bayern ticket which is costs saving for small groups which I could buy from the ticket machines to get to Mainz? thanks for all suggestions.

If you use the RMV website that lists local transportation, then you will find fares. To make it easy though, a group ticket from the airport to Mainz, that will be valid for up to 5 people, will cost 14.70 euro. You will be able to use this all day long in Mainz too.

The ticket machines at the airport have touch screens, they switch to English and are very easy to use.

With 4 the RMV mini group ticket is anyway cheaper than single tickets (which are EUR 3,90 each). RMV tickets cover the regional trains and S-Bahn trains from the airport (regional train station in the basement of Terminal 1) to Mainz. And also the trams and buses in Mainz.

Thank everybody for your response. I think I will get the group ticket which I believe is also valid for use for trams and buses in Mainz. My intention is to go from the Mainz hbf to M ombacherstr 80 (2.3 km) where I will pick up my rented car from Avis. Checked from goggle map and it seems quite close to the Mainze HBF. Is there a certain website where I can check what buses/trams I can take from Mainz HBF to this location and make use of the group ticket?

Would it I be able to know which busstop to get off or can I ask the bus driver? Thanks. Or should I just take a taxi since it is only 2.3 km away? BTW how does taxi rates go in Mainz?

thanks

www.rmv.de handles all local public transportation in the Mainz/Frankfurt area

>Would it I be able to know which busstop to get off or can I ask the bus driver?

You can always ask the bus driver to stop at a certain station, or just ask a neighbour
