Discount on trains

I will be travelling from vienna to Salzburg then to innsbruck and back to vienna. If I get the cards like vienna card , innsbruck card, will the inter city train travel be cheaper ?

Also is it cheaper to book the grin tickets in advance?

Dear Radha!

There are no discounts on the inter city train connections (the vienna card, salzburg, card, innsbruck card, etc... are only valid for the city - the public transport in the city is free but not the train connections from one city to another)

But there are interesting offers called "Sparschiene" from the ÖBB: oebb.at/en/…index.jsp - There you can get tickets for 19 € (but these tickets you have to buy online and they are limited)

Best regards

You can also get cheap fares ALL the time (not just for advance purchase) from the other carrier between Vienna and Salzburg, Westbahn:
