    Change in reply by Jeff to Hi Kelsey, The direct train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/budapest-to-prague.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/budapest-to-prague.html">Budapest to Prague</a> does pass through <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/slovak-republic/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/slovak-republic/index.html">Slovakia</a> along the way. Therefore, to take this train you would have to either purchase the 4 country <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html">Eurail Select Pass</a> to include <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/slovak-republic/index.html" rel="nofollow">Slovakia</a> or a regular ticket for the segment of this ride that passes through <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/slovak-republic/index.html" rel="nofollow">Slovakia</a>. Specifically, the ticket you would have to purchase would be one from Szob (at the Hungary/Slovakia border) to Breclav (at the Slovakia/Czech Republic border). You wouldn't actually get off the train in either Szob or Breclav; this would just be so you'd be covered to pass through <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/slovak-republic/index.html" rel="nofollow">Slovakia</a> in the case that you get the 3 country <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html">Eurail Select Pass</a> to include only <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/hungary/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/hungary/index.html">Hungary</a>, the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/czech-republic/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/czech-republic/index.html">Czech Republic</a>, and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/austria/index.html" rel="nofollow">Austria</a>. Therefore, you would remain on the train for the full duration of the ride between <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/hungary/budapest/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/hungary/budapest/index.html">Budapest</a> and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/czech-republic/prague/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/czech-republic/prague/index.html">Prague</a>. You can purchase this ticket by entering 'Szob' and 'Breclav' as your cities on our homepage, <a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">www.raileurope.com</a>. Since you wouldn't actually be getting off the train in either Szob or Breclav, you can disregard the times that display for departure and arrival. Any departure will do for the date you plan to travel, as the ticket we issue to you would just be used as an 'open ticket' anyway, meaning it would be valid on any of the trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/budapest-to-prague.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/budapest-to-prague.html">Budapest to Prague</a>. You might just want to opt for the 4 country <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html">Eurail Select Pass</a> that includes <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/slovak-republic/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/slovak-republic/index.html">Slovakia</a>, as it is very likely that it would still be less expensive than getting the combination of the 3 country option of the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html">Eurail Select Pass</a> and the supplemental ticket from Szob to Breclav. To check costs for the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html">Eurail Select Pass</a>, you would click here: <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html">https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html</a>.
