Looking for some help / to have my anxiety alleviated! Have purchased a Eurail for 2 people to travel across Europe. I’ve managed to book as far as Vienna, but from there, almost all trains are giving me the ‘prices unavailable’ error. This is the specific route:
Vienna - Bucharest: 3rd Jan 2024
Bucharest - Istanbul: 7th Jan 2024
Istanbul - Ankara: 14th Jan 2024.
I’m particularly concerned about the Vienna - Bucharest leg as we’d love to get a Night train (the Dacia 347) but that requires a reservation. I’ve tried on OBB as well as the Romanian carrier’s website but both show ‘tickets not available’ or similar.
I understand the December 10th schedule change makes ticket bookings open far later than normal, but most of my research (as well as the OBB website) says night trains/long distance routes should have become available by mid-October.
I feel like it’s safe to assume the schedule hasn’t been released yet and to just keep checking. My question is whether anybody has had any luck booking trains for these routes, particularly the Vienna - Bucharest night train (or similar ones), or if everybody’s still experiencing the same issue.
Thanks so much in advance for your help!
