Vienna to Budapest Train Reservation Mistake

Jump to last reply

This is kind of a long story.

So I went on raileurope.com to purchase train tickets for my family for Vienna to Budapest (August 20th). While creating the itinerary, the website asked me when I was LEAVING for Europe, for which I selected August 13th. Perhaps I initially selected the wrong dates for the train BUT next thing you know, the website says the seat reservations for the train are for August 13th. (???) I called the railjet company and they said that even though the reservation is for the train leaving on August 13th, the tickets are still valid for the duration printed (which is well past August 20th, our actual departure date from Vienna to Budapest).

My question is, is it worth the extra money to change the reservation dates? How crowded will the 7pm train be if I don't make a reservation? I made a mistake not booking with the OBB in the first place and there's no way to prove that I selected the correct dates or not, so it looks like I'm going to have to hand over the extra money.
