Nightjet am Bahnsteig mit Kunden

Tickets and rate information

Simple booking - stress-free travel.

Your reserved seat in the travel category of your choice is already included in your ÖBB Nightjet ticket. It is therefore only valid for the respective booked train, the respective date and the selected route. You can generally buy tickets up to 180 days prior to departure. Travel dates falling into the period of the annual timetable change in mid-December may be subject to shorter booking periods.

Standard

Low-price tickets for all passengers from 15 years of age.

Sparschiene

Sparschiene tickets are in demand. Those who wish to travel at particularly low prices should keep in mind that Sparschiene tickets are limited and the price depends on the demand.

Changing categories on the train

In case you would like to change your travel category once the train has departed (e.g. from a seat to a bunk in the couchette coach), please contact our train team. Provided there are places available, you can change your category against paying a surcharge and travel in even more comfort.
