I'm trying to book 3 persons (myself, my husband and adult daughter) in sleepers for the night train from Florence to Vienna.
When I try to book it on Rail Italia(the easiest sight, I have heard) it gives me the SmartFare option of chosing an Economy Triple (T3) Sleeper for $294 total, but when i go to book it, it says it is not available. (Other sleeping arrangement options are shown as sold out but not this one?). It does give me the Standard (more expensive) option for a T3 sleeper at $550!
When I try to book it on Trenitalia it shows me that there is the option to chose "Cabina a 3 - Intera" - the only option I see for three people and what I assume is the same as the Economy Triple T3 Sleeper listed above - charging $530 (129 Euros)/pp.
When I try to book it on OBB, it only gives me the option of chosing a 4-bed couchette for 177 Euros total...but I am not sure if this is the same type of sleeping arrangement - couchette vs sleeper? AND, can I book a 4 bed couchette for just 3 of us? This seems much cheaper...but I am thinking I must be doing something wrong?
