Want to travel by train from budapest to prague May 23, 2015. I see that some tickets can be as cheap as 19euros. However, the Hungarian train website has no English section so am a little concerned about trying to navigate and getting the right tickets. Suggestions? Any problem with getting tickets the day of or the day before? I checked out the German rail site as that was recommended but it indicated I couldn't book this travel. Am confused. Any help appreciated.
You can select English in the top left corner by clicking on the EN. Here are some good instructions:
Buying the day of or the day before travel will be 2-3X the price of tickets purchased online, in advance.
There is no problem with buying tickets at a train station or travel agency in Europe, but advance discount rates are likely to sell out. If you book an international ticket online at http://www.mav.hu/english/, you must pick it up in a Hungarian train station. FYI, I'm not having any luck getting into a ticket booking on that site, at the moment, so try again another day.
