    Hi,

    If that's your itinerary, you could even narrow it down more and purchase the 4 country option of the Eurail Select Pass. The countries you'd include on your Eurail Select Pass are Croatia/Slovenia, Hungary, the Czech Republic, and Austria. Croatia and Slovenia are counted together as one 'country' for the purpose of the Eurail Select Pass. If you go with this option, you would also have to be sure to take a specific route from Budapest to Prague that involves going through Vienna instead of through Slovakia. I would only add about 45 minutes to your total journey time to go through Vienna, as opposed to taking the direct train through Slovakia.

    You would purchase the Eurail Select Pass here: https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html.

    The pass would cover the ticket costs on each of your trains. Reservations would be a supplementary cost. Reservations would be recommended on each of your trains.

    For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations by clicking the 'Seat Reservations' tab on our homepage (www.raileurope.com), entering a route, and indicating the type of rail pass with which you'll be traveling (i.e. a 'Eurail Four Country Select Pass').

    Zagreb to Budapest

    From Zagreb to Budapest, you would take a direct IC (InterCity) train. It would be recommended that you have reservations for this train.

    Budapest to Prague (via Vienna)

    Since Slovakia would not be covered on your Eurail Select Pass, you would just take a route from Budapest to Prague that goes through Vienna instead. Such a connection involves taking a Railjet train from Budapest to Vienna and another Railjet train from Vienna to Prague. On these trains, reservations would be highly recommended in addition to your rail pass. When purchasing reservations for such a trip, you would just have to piece together the connection by doing a separate search for each segment. Therefore, you would do one search for trains from Budapest to Vienna and another search for connecting trains from Vienna to Prague.

    Prague to Vienna

    From Prague to Vienna, you would take a direct Railjet train on which reservations would be highly recommended in addition to the rail pass.
