Train between Budapest and Prague

Is it worth the extra to go first glass instead of second class on the Budapest to Prague train. What are the pros and cons?

Cheers

In short, no. There is very little difference, apart from the price. A €19 second class ticket is perfectly sufficient.

Which site are you looking at? Don't use a rip-off re-seller such as Rail Europe/Eurail, etc.

Buy from http://www.mav-start.hu/english/index.php - here is a guide europetrainsguide.com/Advice/How-to-Buy-Trai…

Hi there! I am finding the same thing with rail Europe and Eurail, their prices are extortionate!!

Would you please be able to recommend some sites I can look at for getting from Sofia to Belgrade to Budapest? I've taken down the one you recommended for Budapest to Prague already :)

you buy those when you are there. Belgrade to Budapest is €15, Sofia to Belgrade is about €23, plus about €20 for a sleeper supplement, if there is a sleeper car on that train at all.

You can't buy these tickets online.
