- The Inter-City Hotel chain in Germany offers free local transport passes to its
visitors. Presumably by selling in bulk in this way they get a significant
discount on what the visitors would have to pay if they bought them for
themselves. But perhaps of greater importance is to ensure that visitors
actually have the information enabling them to plan journeys, and this should
also apply to journeys to points outside the city where they are staying (if
they are staying in a city).
