I just purchased a European East Pass through raileurope.ca (for $344 CDN)
I was advised to buy first class by others who have travelled by train in Europe.
I have a few questions:
Is it necessary to buy a first class pass to reserve a first class seat on a train? (may be obvious but just trying to figure everything out)
I would like some advice regarding reservations. I am going to be travelling during the month of August (high season!) Would it be a bad idea to wait until I get to Europe to make my reservations?
I hear they’re way more expensive online but I worry that everything might get booked up. (especially the night train I hope to take from Warsaw to Budapest)
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. All of this is a little overwhelming.
Warsaw, Budapest, Vienna, Salzburg, Český Krumlov, Prague
