Travelers with an ÖBB customer account benefit especially in the pre-Christmas period. The familiar advantages, such as up-to-date information on offers, pre-saved payment methods, and preferred connections, are extended by four free seat reservations for existing customers.

It means that passengers can enjoy their journey before the Christmas holidays in a relaxed and reassuring manner. All holders of an ÖBB customer account with newsletter registration will automatically find four vouchers for upcoming journeys in the tab My subscriptions & vouchers from next week.

Those who have not yet selected a newsletter registration in their customer account can do so by December 1, 2022, and, thus, also benefit from the voucher campaign. The campaign period starts with the receipt of the voucher and ends on February 26, 2023. During this period, the reservation vouchers can be redeemed for journeys on ÖBB long-distance trains.

A pleasant & stress-free journey with ÖBB

With this thank you, ÖBB not only rewards its loyal regular customers but also benefits from better planning of customer flows in the weeks before Christmas. In addition to additional trains and service staff on peak travel days, reservations are a proven means of avoiding congestion. Therefore, all travelers are requested to obtain information on the capacity utilization of trains in advance (e.g., via the ÖBB timetable information service SCOTTY or ÖBB Live) and to plan their journey accordingly.

With ÖBB Live find the right seat quickly

The tool "ÖBB Live" (to be found at the travel preview in the ticket shop or online at ÖBB Live) makes it even easier to find the right seat. In all ÖBB-operated trains in Austria, it shows, among other things, where to find which carriage with which equipment (carriage number, carriage class, bicycle stands, quiet zone, family zone, WC, on-board bistro, Infopoint, barrier-free seats, etc.), and additionally provides a forecast occupancy rate of the individual carriages in the ÖBB Railjets. It means the best possible orientation on the platform and helps when looking for a seat.
