(LaTeX) Abstract:
In this paper, we generalize the Ski-Rental Problem to the Bahncard PRoblem
which is an online problem of practical relevance for all travelers.
The Bahncard is a railway pass of the Deutsche Bundesbahn
(the German railway company) which entitles its holder to a 50% price
reduction on nearly all train tickets.
It costs 240 DM, and it is valid for 12 months.
Similar bus or railway passes can be found in many other countries.
