Things to know

Who can buy a rail pass?

Any person living in a non-European country can use the Austria Pass. Please note that residents of Russia and Turkey are not eligible.

Seat Reservation

A seat reservation is a guaranteed seat on board a train.

Seat reservations are compulsory for high speed, international and night trains. However, as you will be travelling with a rail pass, you will only have to pay for a small reservation fee, as opposed to the usual standard fare.

Seats are generally available for reservation up to 90 days prior to departure and are limited. Book early to secure your seat!
We are not currently offering online seat reservations for high speed, international and night trains covered by the BritRail passes.You can book your seat reservation directly from train stations once you are in the United Kingdom.

Our tip:
Most regional trains do not require a seat reservation. Just hop on board with a valid rail pass, find a seat and relax as the train takes you to one of the many destinations served.

  • "Amazing !!"    
    As a family we really enjoyed travel using the pass but as compared to Swiss pass, Austria pass has limited options of travelling on the internal city transport systems. Might be a country specific policy.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "My family trip to Austria"    
    I have taken my family for a vacation to Austria in May 2014 and used Austria Rail pass to travel within Austria. We stayed at Maria Alm and took the train from Saalfaden station to visit Salzburg,Vienna and Innsbruck. The train travel was very efficient, convenient and comfortable, and we enjoyed the travel by train a lot. It gave us a country side view and a peek into the culture and customs of Austria and its people. The views of the snow clad mountains, lush green meadows and historical structures created a lasting impression on us and the train journey gave us the opportunity to experience the natural beauty at a close distance.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Value for money austria pass"    
    We were able to explore Austria using the rail pass. It is very convenient because we can take any train we like.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "RAIL for Reliable "    
    It was some of the best experiences in life which will go deep in our mind as a quality product from EU. People and government around the world must learn from the management and technical support of this system to make the lives of peole safer and comfortable as in the present scenario we must depend on such efficient means of commuting to avoid more environmental losses through individual pumping of Carbon in the surroundings. I salute the excellent service providers and maintenance people of the whole Railway system    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Lovely experience"    
    If you are in Austria, it is almost a crime to not take the train... And if you are taking the train for more than a couple of days, then you just HAVE to take the austria pass.. The entire experience was lovely... Tips: 1. Not all rail companies accept the pass.. We boarded WestBahn train after confirming with the train conductor that the pass is accepted, but it turned out that the pass wasnt valid on it... Well, blame the conductor, but we had to pay for the journey... 2. Trains leave on EXACT time, almost to the second. So dont be late. Be extra careful if you have connecting trains. 3. It would be cheaper to buy your drinks n food from the city/railway stations than from the trains.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Austrian pass"    
    We bought an Austrian pass - it was very cheap and we travel the whole of Austria on/off for 7 days. The trains are in an excellent condition and very clean - you got a whole "compartment" for yourself with air condition. We also enjoy the high speed train restaurants. There was never a problem to use the pass. Buy the ‘saver’ if you travel 2 or more. It is really the cheapest way to travel in Europe. You do not have to reserve seats upfront – not even for the scenic routes – get on and there you go.    Value for money  Convenience
