I need advice on train tickets from Salzburg to Prague

Jump to last reply

There are 7 in our group so we can't book them all at once on the website (max is 5). So we're trying to book them in two groups - 3 in one group and 4 in the other.

From other research I was directed to do this through the Czek train's website at https://www.cd.cz/eshop/default.aspx. We're trying to go the first week in June. So each family has someone on the phone trying to book the two sets of tickets at the same time (from different homes) so that we know we can be on the same train. We've tried just about every train in a three day window and no matter which train we try to get on it will allow one person to get to the purchase window but the other person is told there are no tickets available. If the first person who was able to book backs up in the purchase process and the other person proceeds then they can buy tickets and the other person is now told they can't. While I understand some of these trains might be almost full I can't believe EVERY train between the two cities in a 3 day window has just enough for one family to buy but not the other. It's like the system realizes there are two purchases trying to occur from the same area and blocking one. I know that doesn't make sense. I just can't figure it out.

So then I tried it from the Austrian train website at https://www.oebb.at/en/. While the site wasn't nearly as user friendly it did seem to allow me to purchase one set...but for $200 more a family.

The other option is to call Rail Europe's US line where they say they can get all 7 seated together...for almost $1500 more!

Any advice? I'm going to try and call Byron tomorrow.
