Hi!I don't want a sleeper or couchette so I wonder if I'll have to pay any extra fee for my seat (you didn't write about seats),could you help me? 😧

Pete @ 11-07-2010 16:09

Hi.

There are no seats available in this night train as much as I know.
And I always recommend to use couchettes in Eastern Europe where you can lock the doors.

An option for you could be the day train:

Bucuresti Nord Gr. A Dep: 0530
Budapest-Keleti pu Arr: 1847

Does this night train stop at Brasov along its way? Is it possible to take it in Brasov?

Pete @ 24-10-2010 15:34

I just added the times for Brasov in the first post... 🙂

Robert_Antonio @ 27-10-2010 08:30

Both the night trains contain seat cars, which you can use without supplement or reservation. But consider that these cars have ordinary seats, unlike the Ruhesessel in German or Scandinavian night trains.

Hi!

Does the EuroNight train (EN472) cost 9 Euro for a 6 bed sleeper compartment as well, or is that price only for the D 346 train?

Flo @ 10-04-2011 20:55

Hi!

EN 472/473:

o 6 person couchette: 16,4 EUR/person/way

o 4 person couchette: 23 EUR/person/way

o 3 person sleeper: 39 EUR/person/way

o 2 person sleeper: 52 EUR/person/way

o 1 person sleeper*: 108 EUR/person/way. (*1st class ticket needed)

is there a day train for budapest?? and what about his schedule?? if we take the night train with a IR pass, will we be charged with 2 days or just one??

Pete @ 25-04-2011 13:07

Hi.

Using the direct night trains mentioned above with an InterRail Flexi Pass it is always TWO travel days, as the trains leave Bucharest before 1900h. See the rule for night trains: https://rail.cc/en/interrail-night-train

To avoid loosing TWO travel days using only ONE, you have this option:

1
Bucuresti Nord Gara Adep: 0545 | IC train
Timisoara Nord arr: 1415
Timisoara Nord dep: 1635 | IC train
Budapest-Keleti pu arr: 2050
IC trains in Romania requires a supplement: https://rail.cc/en/interrail-train-reservation

2
Bucuresti Nord Gara A dep: 2045 | night train: https://rail.cc/en/bucharest-belgrade-night-train/f4775
Timisoara Nord arr: 0529
Timisoara Nord dep: 0640 | IC train
Budapest-Keleti pu arr: 1050

kostasx91 @ 25-04-2011 15:14

thank you very much.. but i have another question concerning the second choice.. the 1900h rule applies only on direct trains.. but the train ( the one you suggested me) it's not direct because we have to change at Timisoara.. or am i wrong?? ( i dont know exaclty the meaning of the direct train so :P )...
thx in advance

Pete @ 25-04-2011 16:00

Hi.
The rule says: you have to use a direct night train with no changes between 19:00h and 04:00h in the morning. After 04:00h in the morning (like it is in this case: 05:29h) you can leave the night train and use other trains the whole day long until 23:59h.

kostasx91 @ 23-06-2011 11:31

peter, another question.. how can i book some couchettes for the night train?? can i do it from the internet??

Pete @ 23-06-2011 11:37

Hi.
The Rail Pass discounted reservations are only available offline at a station ...
But not only in Hungary or Romania, as well in bordering countries and Germany, .....

the problem is that we will arive at bucharest 12 hours before leaving for budapest.. is there any chance that we will not find couchetteS?

Pete @ 23-06-2011 11:45

Mmmh. Hard to say. But I think you will get a place. Where do you come from?
If booking isn't possible anymore at the station, you can directly ask the staff at the train.

my and my friends will start our trip from sofia.. ( we are from greece ).

Pete @ 23-06-2011 11:57

Then buy the reservations in Sofia. Should be possible!
In the main station, main entrance, turn left - a floor (left hand) under the main big timetable display. There you will find the RILA office (blue, white color).
It is the office of the Bulgarian national railway company for international (!) train tickets. There you should get your reservations!

Hi
Some friends and I will be going to Bucharest in September and then onto Budapest. We will stop at Brasov for most of the day on way. We want to get train 472 from Brasov to Budapest. I understand the basic fare is 40 euros then you pay a supplement dependant on cabin. I see prices for 472 from the Romania railways website which says Bucharest to Budapest. The only mention for Brasov to Budapest supplement is for train 403. Does anyone know how much the supplement is from Brasov to Budapest on 472.
