Hi Peter!

Thanks for the great info on night trains from Vienna to Zurich. I have been using the European Rail planner you suggested, to find the best routes around europe. Whilst I have been trying to avoid trains with supplements, I think from Vienna to either Zurich or Innsbruck is going to have to be paid for (due to the insane length of time of a trip without surcharges)...

I wondered if you could help me by telling me how you found out the surcharge costs of different trains?? Especially costs for passengers with an interrail card?? This would be very helpful and let me plan my trip with more certainty to the costs of certain routes, and also figuring out which trains with surcharges will be the best options to take...

Hi Steve.
I found them out by using all these trains and asking the staff in the trains for details.

Is there any way to reserve ourselves for this train journey online?

What is the difference between a sleeper quad and a couchette for 4 people?
there will be two of us (2 adult males) travelling if that makes any difference.

There is no option to make the reservation online as far as I know. You could try at though.

The 4bed sleeper will be male only whereas the 4bed couchette can have male and female occupany. In the sleeper you have washbasin en-cabin and IMO the beds are more comfortable.
