Train ticket prices in Austria and Germany

Jump to last reply

I am still sorting out my train tickets for our trip in May to Salzburg and Garmisch/Munich. On both the Bahn.de and Oebb websites, there are different fares if you buy early for a specific train (non-refundable and non-transferable) or for a flexible train schedule. Do the flexible train fares fluctuate much? Is there a benefit to buying them now versus just buying at the train station when we arrive? Or will they be the same price (and not fluctuate like airplane ticket prices)?

I am nervous that delayed flight will cause us to miss our train if we buy the discount fare ticket, so I am leaning towards paying full price (I am still researching the all inclusive train passes to see if they make sense financially).

Thanks as always!
