Vienna to Budapest by rail

Looking to travel to Budapest from Vienna on 14th July by Jetrail service out of Munich to Budapest via Vienna. Appreciate this is cross-border But having difficulty getting fares from Austrian rail company.(oebb).Raileurope quote E92 for two yet Mav-Start website quotes E26. Unfortunately final booking page is in Hungarian and I haven't completed the booking. Anyone got any experience of this company and does the fare sound right ?

www.oebb.at

Make a query > Click on "tickets and prices"

When traveling from Austria to Hungary you need to book with ÖBB - and not MAV.

Rail Europe prices are usually terrible, but €46 per person for Munich-Vienna-Budapest doesn't sound too bad!

I doubt very much whether rail europe can offer the journey at this price as this is less than the official price. Don't forget that they will also add a booking fee and a delivery fee. Don't use them.

Munich - Vienna €29 www.bahn.com

Vienna - Budapest €19 www.oebb.at

I just had a look and yes, there are tickets available for €19 in December, sometimes even less.

Bear in mind that the closer you get to Christmas the more chance there is of the discounted tickets being sold out - once the €19 tickets go, then the price goes up to €29 and so on.

You need to use this site https://ticketing.oebb.at/inet/pub/en/ticket
