A group trip needs to be well-planned. For groups of 10 persons or more you will need, in addition to the group ticket, seat reservations for all travellers. Secure your preferred seats on the train with our free domestic seat reservation.
Free reservation with an ÖBB group ticket or an ÖBB Schulcard
When you travel with an ÖBB group ticket or an ÖBB Schulcard (for youth groups), you will need seat reservations for all travellers, if the group includes 10 persons or more. This reservation is free for domestic routes within the ÖBB network. For trips abroad, it costs 1 Euro per seat and direction of travel. Warning: For international fixed price trains, special reservation fees apply.
How to book seats
You can reserve seats for your group - exclusively with an ÖBB group ticket or an ÖBB Schulcard - free of charge at the following places: online, via the ÖBB customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org and at the ÖBB ticket counters.
