I'm planning to take the night train from Zurich to Prague in April with the Eurail 3 countries select pass.
I checked this page [u]https://rail.cc/en/night-train/zurich-prague-cnl40470/38[/u] and it has a list of the available categories and the respective prices. When I clicked the BUY ONLINE link it leads to DB Bahn, and over there the available categories and prices are completely different. When I checked on raileur*pe and tgv-eur*pe, again the prices are completely different.
What baffles me more:
a) on raileur*pe it shows the price for the reservation only, and it's different than the ones shown on the railcc page
b) on db bahn and tgv-eur*pe, they show the price for ticket + reservation, and the prices are cheaper than the reservation prices on railcc. that doesn't make sense at all because that means the eurail pass would be redundant.
So I'm wondering why all this is, I hope someone can help me clarify?
Plus, what is the best (cheapest) way to get the reservation for the night train? Can I just get the reservation at the station on the day that I'm traveling?
Thank you very much! :)
