Can you book tickets online from oebb.at

Hi all,

I have a question, I am looking to book ticket from Vienna to Innsbruck on 18th June, for 7:36 train, so my question is that can I just book online and take a printout and show to ticket checker in train, or I need to do something else at station ?

Please let me know

Regards

You can book online - they have it all in English language. Is cheapest and best option.

It depends on your travel time and how busy it will be - there is in general no need to book tickets for June now - you have trains every hour. You can also do it one day before or just show up on the train station and buy a ticket. If you want a cheaper deal per-booking might be needed.

You won't get a cheap deal on the day so pre-book. Pre-booking does, however, tie you to a specific train. There is only a limited number of discounted tickets so don't leave it too late.

oh by reservation i did not mean booking ticket, which i am looking to book today .. but like seat reservation, i understand that for some trains, we need to book seat reservation over train ticket itself, is that the case on this train ?

it isn't compulsory. Just get to the station about 10 minutes before the train leaves, choose an unreserved seat and make yourselves comfortable.

please pardon me if I am repetitive here, but i got a bit confused, I just booked a ticket in switzerland and they asked me to take the confirmation number and go to station shop and pick ticket from there. So, just to be sure,

On oebb.at I booked ticket , after that there is option of "print ticket online", when I click this button i get a pdf.

Now my question is that do i need to take this pdf to some train station and get it stamped/ verefied, or just take a print out and get into the train ?

Just take it on the train with the card you used to pay for it and some photo ID (you should have your passport with you).
