I'm starting my Interrail-adventure next week and my first train will be from St. Pölten to Zürich. I want to catch the train as early as possible, because I plan on travelling from Zurich to Milan on the same day, so I only use one travel-day.
My question is the following: the train departs on the 3rd of May at 20:40 from Budapest and arrives in St. Pölten at 23:59 (still May 3rd) with the departure at 00:01 on the 4th of May.
Will this cost me one or two travel days, as I'll be boarding the train right on the edge of those two days.
Which time counts? The departure time or the time of arrival?
Thank you in advance,
