FAQ about night trains

1.What types of accommodation on night trains do you offer?

2nd class Sleeper cabins: Bed 1 pers., 2 pers., and 3 pers. – more comfortable cabins for 1, 2 or 3 passengers.

  • There is a sink, a wardrobe and the bunk beds are already made (sheet, blanket, pillow). You can lock the door. A small breakfast is usually included in price.
  • Toilets are communal. Newer sleeper carriages are generally air-conditioned, have 230 V sockets and communal shower.
  • The compartments are separate for men and women. This does not apply if you buy all the beds in the cabin (e.g. 2 beds in Bed 2p cabin). Children 0–9 years old travel regardless of gender.

Deluxe sleeper cabins: Bed 1 pers. Delux, Bed 2 pers. Delux, Bed 3 pers. Delux – 1st class accommodation for 1, 2 or 3 passengers. More information about booking is in question no. 3.

  • There is a sink, a wardrobe and the bunk beds are already made (sheet, blanket, pillow). You can lock the door. A small breakfast is usually included in price.
  • Includes a private toilet and shower. Newer sleeper carriages are generally air-conditioned and have 230 V sockets.
  • The compartments are separate for men and women. This does not apply if you buy all the beds in the cabin (e.g. 2 beds in Bed 2p cabin). Children 0–9 years old travel regardless of gender.

2nd class Couchette cabins: Couchette 4 pers. and 6 pers. – cabins for 4 or 6 passengers offering a lower level of comfort for a lower price.

  • A sheet, a blanket and a pillow are provided. You have to make up your bunk bed. Breakfast is not included in the price.
  • Toilets and wash-rooms are shared by the entire carriage.
  • These compartments are always communal for men and women.

2. Should I buy the ticket in advance?

YES. We recommend it because beds and couchettes can be easily sold out during the summer and winter season. The booking for most of the trains opens 2–3 months before the departure. Although tickets can be bought before departure at a train station, it is not very wise to rely on the very last moment as all compartments may already be sold out.

3. Can I have a 1st class cabin?

YES. Most of the overnight trains in Europe (e.g. Prague – Budapest) offer 1st class private cabins for 1–3 passengers. These deluxe cabins have usually a private shower and toilette and a small breakfast is served in the morning. If you want to check the availability of these cabins, send us an email (info@czech-transport.com).

Some of the night trains in Eastern Europe offer 2nd class cabins only. In that case there are shared social facilities at the both ends of each carriage.

4. How to get night train tickets?

Please, use our booking form. Train tickets are sent to a provided address (home / work / hotel), for more information about delivery methods see our FAQ about delivery.

5. Can I have breakfast / dinner on the train?

YES. The service is different on very train. Generally speaking restaurant and bistro cars are not available at night. You can buy refreshments from your carriage attendant, have dinner/breakfast at a train station or bring your own food on board. On most trains if you book a bed cabin, you receive a small breakfast (tea/coffee/cro­issant).

6. Where to put my luggage?

There are no luggage cars or compartments on most of the overnight trains. Passengers store their baggage inside their cabins.
