Hello! I am trying to get from Austria to Venice in March. I found a direct route that states that I need to purchase a seat reservation from Villach Hbf to Venezia Santa Lucia but when I went to do so on my computer only a paper ticket is available. Since I would much prefer a mobile ticket I followed advice I saw on a separate forum and went to the Czech Rail website to see if I could purchase a seat reservation there. The confusing thing though is that when I found the exact same route for my journey it said, “no restrictions on the route.” I’m wholly unsure which information I should trust, could I even still use my eurail pass for this route if I don’t purchase a reservation since it’s from the eurail site itself that’s stating I need said reservation? I don’t know if opting for a paper ticket would be a safer option as I’m worried about it not arriving at my hostel in time.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you for taking the time to read this. 💓
