From next Sunday there will be the possibility of traveling from Vienna to Budapest for as little as 9 euros – with the Regiojet train company. It also allows itself a swipe at other operators.
The private Czech railway company Regiojet will start a Vienna-Budapest train connection from Sunday, June 13th from 9 euros. The company doesn’t skimp on criticizing the competition either. The aim is to offer passengers another option “how to travel comfortably by train than at the absurd prices of the current state operators,” Regiojet director Ivana Sachsová was quoted in a broadcast on Friday.
Traveling by train will be significantly cheaper than with the ÖBB, according to the private railway. Regiojet wants to connect Vienna with Budapest twice a day in each direction. The standard tariff will cost 11 euros, “Relax” 15 euros, “Business” 25 euros.
Operations between Prague and Vienna, where there are four daily train connections in each direction, have since been fully resumed.
