I’m very frustrated!

Ceske Budejovice to Budapest Train Reservation with European East pass

I tried to reserve a seat online with European East Pass. However, I encounter an error message. To be more specific, I tried to reserve a seat on a morning train from Ceske Budejovice to Budapest (or Linz) on 26/9/2012. But it keeps showing the message, "Sorry, There was an error when sending your request. Please try again in a minute." I have tried to reserve again and again but it was the same.
Is this because the train are sold out or there is no available seat for reservation with European East Pass?

    Hi Leslie,

    A rail connection from Ceske Budejovice to Budapest involves changing trains once in Prague along the way. The trains from Ceske Budejovice to Prague are regional trains that don't even accept reservations, so the European East Pass is all you would need to board. Reservations are required on the connecting trains from Prague to Budapest, be it on the direct day train or the direct overnight train between Prague and Budapest. Due to the fact that one of the trains doesn't accept reservations, the full route won't display on our website when you do one search all the way through from Ceske Budejovice to Budapest.

    If you'd like to take the day connection from Ceske Budejovice to Budapest, you would just book reservations for the portion from Prague to Budapest on our website. You would do this by clicking on 'Book a Reservation for Your Pass' or 'Book your Rail Pass Reservations' on the homepage.

    However, the night train from Prague to Budapest is currently not able to be booked on our website. You can book reservations on this night train by calling us at 1-800-622-8600.

    These trains can be booked within 60 days of an intended date of departure.

    For planning, you can just check schedules for the first segment of this route from Ceske Budejovice to Prague under 'Check Fares and Schedules' or 'Find Fares & Schedules' on the homepage of our website.
