    Hello, according to the website (railandbike.net/en/bi­ke-train/348-hungary/27-eurocity-ec/0#p4) there is bicycle transport possible until September on both EC 345 / EC149 train from Vienna to Budapest. Please confirm if this is true. However it's not possible to buy bicycle tickets online, is there any option to make a reservation and ensure there will be space for our bicycles?

      Hello, do you have a special date in mind? How many bicycles? I will check the availability. Ordering is possible by email. Thank you. Pavla

        Thank you for reply. There are two of us. We have decided to disassembly and completely pack bicycles into manufacturer cardboxes and transport them as standard luggage as there is faster and cheaper connection from Passau to Budapest by RegionalExpress, ICE and then EC train. These are all ÖBB trains so I suppose I should contact not with you but with ÖBB to confirm that we will not exceed luggage allowance, however I haven't found any information about restrictions on their site.

          Hello,thank you for the information. If you are buying the tickets from them it would be better to ask the directly.

          If you wanted to travel with the bicycles – not folded – it is also possible. But with 2 changes from Passau to Budapest – 9 hour trip.

          Kind regards Pavla
