Hello Rossana,

Thanks for the question.

For your travel it is best to purchase the European East Pass. The European East Pass allows you to travel on the regional and domestic trains in Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria and Hungary.

Kindly note the European East Pass has validity of 5 days within 1 month, however additional days can be added as per your travel days.

To purchase the European East Pass click “Here”.

Keep in mind that seat reservations would be mandatory for all High-Speed, Night, Scenic and Border Crossing trains. But, you will avail pass holder/discounted fares for these journeys with the pass.

In order to book seat reservations, please visit our website.

The pass seats can be reserved by clicking on “Seat Reservations” & feed in the Departure city and the Arrival city along with the travel date and preferred time & the number of passengers (Senior, adults, youth and children), and then click on “search tickets”. Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares.

Please click on the “Fare Details” tab to view details regarding the type of fare, type of seat, whether a reservation is included or not and the After Sales Policy.

Hope this helps!!!

Best Regards,

Amar, Rail Europe Travel Expert.
