I will be spending a little over a week in Central Europe and am trying to figure out the best way to buy rail tickets. We will be flying in and out of Budapest, so I would need a ticket from Budapest to Vienna, Vienna to Prague, and Prague to Budapest. I believe the triangle pass would be our best option, but I have a few questions on it:
- If we make reservations, can we reserve spots in 1st class?
- Can we make reservations on the high-speed trains?
- If we make a reservation and don't end up taking the train, does that count as one of our trips, or do we just lose the money for the reservation?
Thanks for your input!
