Currently, to get from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/hungary/budapest/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Budapest</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/dubrovnik" rel="nofollow">Dubrovnik</a>, you would first have to take an overnight train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/hungary/budapest/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Budapest</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/croatia/split/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Split</a> (the 'Adria' night service); however, this night train is seasonal and will only run until September 1st of this year. Additionally, within this time frame, the Budapest-Split night train will only depart on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.<br /><br />If your travel falls between September 1st and October 28th, you would have to take an IC (InterCity) train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/budapest-to-zagreb.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Budapest to Zagreb</a>, where you would connect to a night train that will take you to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/split" rel="nofollow">Split</a>.<br /><br />From <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/croatia/split/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Split</a>, you would reach <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/dubrovnik" rel="nofollow">Dubrovnik</a> by bus or another ferry. The bus takes about 3 to 4 hours in duration, and the ferry takes about 9 hours in duration. The bus and ferry are both not covered by any rail pass. Tickets for the bus can only be purchased directly through the bus company, and tickets for the ferry can only be purchased directly through the ferry company.<br /><br />Overnight trains require reservations, so you would need to have reservations whether you take the night train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/hungary/budapest/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/europe-travel-guide/hungary/budapest/indexhtml">Budapest</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/croatia/split/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/europe-travel-guide/croatia/split/indexhtml">Split</a> or the night train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/zagreb" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/zagreb">Zagreb</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/split" rel="nofollow">Split</a>.<br /><br />On the IC train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/budapest-to-zagreb.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/budapest-to-zagreb.html">Budapest to Zagreb</a>, reservations are recommended as a supplement to a rail pass.<br /><br />Only the night train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/zagreb-to-split.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/popular-routes/zagreb-to-splithtml">Zagreb to Split</a> is currently able to be reserved through our website. For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations for the train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/budapest-to-zagreb.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Budapest to Zagreb</a> and the night train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/zagreb-to-split.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/zagreb-to-split.html">Zagreb to Split</a> by clicking the 'Seat Reservations' tab on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom">www.raileurope.com</a>), entering the route, and indicating the type of rail pass with which you'll be traveling (i.e. a 'Eurail Global Pass'). For the full 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 the segment from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/budapest-to-zagreb.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/popular-routes/budapest-to-zagrebhtml">Budapest to Zagreb</a> and then another search to access the night train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/zagreb-to-split.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/popular-routes/zagreb-to-splithtml">Zagreb to Split</a>.<br /><br />Due to an error, when trying to access schedules and costs for overnight trains on <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/index.html">our site</a>, it has been necessary to adjust your preferred departure time by entering a time closer to the specific hour of the train's departure time. Therefore, when you go to enter the criteria of your search, you would want to choose some time in the early evening, like '06 pm' as your preferred departure time. By doing this, you will get the night train to display, and you can proceed to purchase your reservations.<br /><br />Even for when you do your search for the day train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/budapest-to-zagreb.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/popular-routes/budapest-to-zagrebhtml">Budapest to Zagreb</a>, I would recommend adjusting your preferred departure time to some time in the very early afternoon.<br /><br />Note: If you happen to need reservations for the night train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/hungary/budapest/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/hungary/budapest/index.html">Budapest</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/croatia/split/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/europe-travel-guide/croatia/split/indexhtml">Split</a>, you would have to call us. Again, however, this Friday is the last day that the Budapest-Split night train will operate this year, so that would mean you would have to call us today by 5:00pm CT to allow enough time for us to ship you the reservation document..

    Changed description to Hi! I am going to be traveling from Boston to Germany, Munich to Prague, Prague to Vienna, Vienna to Budapest, and Budapest to Dubrovnik. I want to know which pass to get in order to pay the least amount. I am with two other travelers and one of us is less than 25 years of age. Also should I just get tickets or the rail pass?
