If you book ahead at, you can get a discounted fare but will be tied to a particular train departure. If you buy tickets at the last minute, full fare is about $60 per person. That site has recently not been easy for US credit card approval. is a popular, competing rail operator on this route that's usually both cheaper and easier to book

Use Westbahn, buy your ticket on the train. One train every hour. Free wifi.

If I buy Westbahn tix ,you are suggesting no need to buy in advance and board the train and buy on the train from the conductor?
If I am traveling between the hours of 10am and 1pm which I would think is between rush hour i would have no problem getting a seat. so If I buy Westbahn in advance is there much if any of a discount as Laura has suggested doing on the other line? Thank you.
