munich to Salzburg: why are there 2 different "flex preis"?

Jump to last reply

In April, we will be flying to Munich to begin our Eastern Europe trip. Our flight will arrive at MUC in the morning and we will take the train from the airport to Salzburg (changing at Munich HBF). I can't book the saver fare because I can't be sure our plane will be on time or how long customs will take. But I'd still like to have our tickets in hand so we can hop on the first available train. So I want FlexPreis tickets, purchased on line. However, the OEBB website has a mystery I can't figure out. There are 2 kinds of trains on that route: S,M and S,RJ. The travel times are virtually identical, so if one is an express there's no advantage in it. Nonetheless, FlexPreis tickets for the S,M train are 34.5 euros and the ones for the S,RJ train are are 41. Which leads (finally) to my question: if I buy the cheaper S,M FlexPreis tickets will we be allowed onto the S,RJ train, if that one's leaving first? If not, why does OEBB advertise that a Flex Preis will get you onto any train? And if so, why the price difference? It all makes no sense to me. And another thing: how can you reserve a seat, if you don't know what train you'll be on? Another mystery. Please, I'd love to hear from anyone who knows the system well enough to explain. Thanks,
Barbara
