    Hi Winnie,

    AD75 rates (the discount for travel agents) are not offered for regular tickets on most trains in Europe, including trains between Budapest and Vienna. In fact, the only individual trains in Europe that even offer AD75 travel agent rates are:

    1.) The Eurostar between London and either Paris or Brussels

    2.) Thalys trains between Paris and some of the larger cities in Belgium and the Netherlands.

    For a complete listing of agency discounted products, you would click on 'Travel Agent Resources' under where it says 'Agent Home' on the homepage of our travel agent website. On the next screen, you would click on 'Book Agent Discounts'. This would take you to the list of AD75-eligible items.

    If you need to purchase a point-to-point ticket for any train other than a Eurostar or Thalys, then you would have to do so at one of the regular offered rates. You would purchase tickets and check schedules by clicking on 'Find Fares & Schedules' on the homepage of our travel agent website and entering the route. Trains from Budapest to Vienna are high-speed 'Railjet' trains or 'EuroCity' trains.

    Otherwise, you could purchase the Eurail Austria-Hungary Pass, which is listed as one of the items able to be purchased at the AD75 travel agent rate. A Eurail Austria-Hungary Pass would cover the ticket costs for the trains from Budapest to Vienna. In addition to the pass, reservations are recommended on the trains from Budapest to Vienna. For travel with rail pass, you would purchase reservations by clicking on 'Book your Rail Pass Reservations' on our homepage, entering the route, and indicating the type of rail pass you'll be traveling with when you're prompted (i.e. the Eurail Austria-Hungary Pass).

    Generally, trains between Budapest and Vienna can be booked once within 90 days of an intended date of departure.
