Please Help! Purchasing train tickets in Austria and Czech Republic

Jump to last reply

I'm traveling to Austria and Czech Republic next week and am planning on taking trains to get around. I haven't bought any tickets yet and I am trying to figure out -
1) Can I buy tickets in advance online?
2) Is it advisable to buy tickets in advance to get a seat?
3) If you don't buy tickets in advance how do you buy them once you arrive? i.e. automated kiosk vs. ticket counter And will the lines be long?

Also, what is the difference between a ticket and a seat reservation? Do I need to have both for any of these trains? (I don't want to have to stand) I think most of these are regional trains if that makes a difference.

Thanks so much for any help you can give!
