Venice to Budapest Night Train Supplement Cost?

Hello - I'm planning a trip to Europe this coming spring and don't see much on here for the night train Venice to Budapest. I can price it out for the straight cost but I'm interested in the extra cost for a couchette sleeper if we already have rail passes. Has anyone been on this train (either direction I guess?) and know the supplement cost? I know when I did the night train Prague to Basel last year it was about 60 Euro each for the supplement with a rail pass (but it was a deluxe double cabin). Thanks!

A "dirty little secret" of railpasses is that the national rail companies don't really cooperate to help you use them. I don't know of any national rail company that offers night train supplement for sale online. Of course, you can usually get "reservations only" through RailEurope, but you will probably pay dearly for the "service". On the other hand, Euraide has offices in Munich and Berlin and will buy your night train supplement over there and send it over here for a fee ($50 per order, I think).

Thanks Lee. I know this...last year I did it all over the phone through the German rail people...they were so helpful thankfully. There really is no easy way to get this information online and Rail Europe prices are inflated of course and that website is no help in figuring out costs. We are estimating a 3 week trip and trying to get a sense now of the cost. Hoping someone on here has actually done the trip.

Euraide shows the cost of the supplements for most, if not all, of the night trains in Europe, online on their website, so if you just want an estimate, that is a good source.
