Can you hop on an OBB Nightjet at stopping stations (not starting station)?

Dear Eurail Community,

I would like to ask, I have booked an OBB Nightjet reservation from Amsterdam to Innsbruck.


As you can see the route is as below.


The thing is, I am planning to hop on the nightjet train at Dusseldorf Hbf and not from Amsterdam Centraal.

Is this okay? Will i be considered no show? Will my sleepers still exclusively booked for me or not?


Thank you very much.

It's allowed to re-sell your place 15 minutes after the booked station if you don't show.

So you may be lucky or not. If there’s someone else on your place, it’s gone. 

With an expensive sleeper compartment, I wouldn’t risk.

You could send a message to Nightjet advising them of your plans and then hopefully the train manager and booking staff will be advised. They should then only need to change your reservation in their system to protect your berths.

Hello Hektor and Yorkie,

Thanks very much for the replies. The OBB team has responded me, stated that I can only board 15 mins after reservation time. So I have to board from Amsterdam, or reschedule my starting station.

Thanks all!
