    Hi Tamanna,

    For your itinerary, it would be more economical to purchase the Eurail Austria-Hungary Pass, as opposed to regular tickets.

    However, any order placed on our website takes 24 to 48 business hours to be processed in addition to the time it takes to ship the documents; an additional 2 to 3 business days to be shipped if the option of standard delivery is chosen or an additional 1 business day if the option of express delivery is chosen.

    Therefore, if you need the documents by tomorrow or within the next couple days, then you would have to call us at 1-800-622-8600 to place your order and request overnight delivery. By calling us, you would be able to bypass the potential 24 to 48 hour processing time and ensure that your order is able to go out today, so you can receive it tomorrow. The last shipment on any given weekday leaves our office at 6:30p ET.

    In the meantime, you would check costs for the Eurail Austria-Hungary Pass by clicking here: http://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-austria-hungary-pass/index.html.

    There is no 3 day option of this pass. The minimum number of travel days that can be put on a Eurail Austria-Hungary Pass is 4.

    For travel with a rail pass, you would want to be sure to factor in any reservations costs as well, as reservations would be recommended on each of the requested trips that comprise of your itinerary. You would check the reservation costs by clicking on 'Book your Rail Pass Reservations' on the homepage of our website, www.raileurope.com.

    Once you have checked the reservation costs for each of these segments, you would then add those costs to the cost of the Eurail Austria-Hungary Pass.

    To determine your overall most economical option, you can then compare the total amount from that to the cumulative total of the point-to-point ticket costs you found for the same trains. Regular point-to-point ticket costs are checked by clicking on 'Find Fares & Schedules' on the homepage, as opposed to 'Book your Rail Pass Reservations'.
