Here is a link to the site in English https://westbahn.at/en/ . There are discounts for seniors.

Apparently only available in tobacco stores https:/… and only on trains between Monday and Thursday inclusive.

Otherwise you just buy the ticket on the train - no need to book in advance. A ticket bought in advance is valid for a year on any Westbahn train anyway.

WESTBAHN does not offer discounts for early booking as their fares are basically low (in comparison to ÖBB), but they sometimes have promotions as mentioned in the other thread (which you have already seen as I could see). The standard fare between Vienna and Salzburg only is 23.90€.

ÖBB's standard fare is around 50€, but they also offer disocunted tickets for 19€ which are subject to advance booking and availability!
