Bought a rail pass and trying to find how to reserve a bus/train trip to vienna from venice. Don't want the night train. I can find the schedule but not how to reserve. I'm assuming that this is covered by the rail pass. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks
Try here Rail Europe
It looks like you plan to take the bus from Venice to Villach and the train from there to Vienna. Reservations are required on the bus but not on the train. Since the bus is operated by Austrian Rail, I assume (but I don't know for sure) that your pass will be good on it. If so, there should be no need to buy your seat reservation in advance. Buy it when you get to Venice. However, to play it safe, call the experts at Budget Europe Travel Service. Their advice is free.
