I was on the International Journey Planner
and came across different terminology.
The first, for example on the SC 74 train from Breclav to Prague, says Compulsory Reservation in bold.
The second, for example on the D825 night train from Zagreb to Split, or the 701 train from Rijeka to Zagreb, say Please reserve in non-bold writing.
I am just a little confused about exactly what these mean. Do they:
a) Simply mean that tickets cannot be bought on the train but should be purchased at the station?
b) Mean that tickets should be bought further in advance than on the day at the station?
c) Mean that supplements apply to all that mention 'reserve' (which appears to be 90% of trains anyway) or just ones in bold complusory reservation or to neither?
Are these questions answerable, or is it going to have to be a case of see what the score is when you're out there? It's just frustrating that nowhere seems to clearly indicate a comprehensive list of which trains charge, as this would allow much better journey planning in my opinion.
