Train tickets

Here are the main train reservation systems in Europe. You can reserve your ticket and pay online. All you will need is a print-out copy. The conductors have a special scanner so they can see if your ticket is valid or not. This system is very convenient and saves time and money for many people who cannot buy tickets at the counter.

Even though some reservation systems are local, eg Czech or German, they will anyway sell tickets for other countries. Availability of sits and prices may differ as each country has their own allowance of sits.
