In France it is hard to book if you are not at the train station. I tried to book a ticket from Paris to Budapest and when calling the Austrian rail company they were able to book a reservation from aschaffenburg to budapest for me. I had to book Paris-Aschaffenburg at the station.
Well i went to the station and to my surprise the reservation would cost me 96 euros! I thought this must be a mistake so i looked online and online for the same train i pay less not using my interrail pass then i pay when i use it. It is the same train!
The train in question is the 8 august 19:06 train from Paris to aschaffenburg wich arrives at 01:22. The price difference is €20 and i got the other price from trainline.
This surely must be a mistake right? What did i do wrong?
