"Buying a train ticket on board the train" Austria Transportation Tip by IanHB

Austria Transportation: 114 reviews and 133 photos

Beware! Train conductors can and do sell tickets on board - BUT - if you get on at a station which has a staffed ticket office, you may face a heavy surcharge (50 euros) for not buying the ticket at the station. At unstaffed stations, mainly on rural lines, there is no problem buying a ticket on board, and it is normal price. So buy at the station or on line if you can. The OBB have a very good on line ticket and timetable information system.
