comment Travel from London to Paris or Zurich by train without a Schengen visa
Are you in effect asking if you need a Schengen visa to enter the Schengen area? If so, what is your citizenship?

You are right, I forgot about the transit visa exceptions. I have modified the answer.

"You might need a visa" is a rather pointless answer to the question "do I need a visa?". Except for that, a visa is issued by either UK or Ireland and not for the CTA. Having a UK visa does not necessarily entitle you to go to Ireland and vice versa, although both countries are in the CTA.

comment Is it possible to buy the ticket on board in German train?
It might be easier to understand what you're writing if you made less use of "its" and "theys", where it's not really obvious what you refer to.

comment Is it possible to buy the ticket on board in German train?
You wrote that "if they have empty seats on the train, they'll let you in" and I found that statement utterly confusing, since there is neither no one there to let you in if there are free seats on the train, nor is anybody there to prevent you from boarding if the train is full. And when it comes to DB operations, what is "it"? Are you talking about the network or the trains and if you are still clinging to DB owning most of the rail network, what relation does that have to who operates the trains?

The deep link to the search result is only valid for a short period.

If a train with mandatory reservations is full, you won't get a ticket, but noone will stop you from getting on the train (contrary to what you wrote in your edited answer). In Germany, there is usually no ticket control when entering the train and it is up to the passenger to either have a valid ticket or be sure to be able to buy a ticket on the train. You are also wrong in your statement that DB operates most of the national network. DB owns 34.000 km of the network, but private companies are running their stock on most of it.

First of all, this only applies to trains operated by Deutsche Bahn. There are several other train operators in Germany, each with their own regulations where and when to buy tickets. The statement is not even true for all DB long distance trains. Some of them, especially the ICE Sprinter and night trains often have obligatory seat reservations and tickets are not available in the train if they are full. You must at least check this with the conductor before departure.

comment Train from Budapest to Zagreb - buy in advance or at the train station?
These are direct connections, but there are actually only two daily connections, IC200 and IC204. The third I found (the night train from Budpest to Split with stop in Zagreb) only operates twice a week. There are several more connections with one or more train changes. You can find all of these on the DB route planner, so I don't understand what you have been looking for.

There are three daily trains from Budapest to Zagreb, so this does not seem to be a particulary good advice.

comment Travelling by train in Germany, what's the best option to buy the ticket?
@nsn When? As far as I can see, there are no intercity trains stopping at Cologne/Bonn Airport.

Is the question if you need a visa? If so, is it somehow relevant that your daughter has a British passport?
