My wife and I are planning to travel by train from Nice to Budapest over the course of 2 weeks, stopping at a number of towns and cities on the way.
We'd prefer the flexibility of booking our tickets on the day of travel, but are wary of ticket prices rising the closer you get to the travel date (as happens markedly here in the UK). However, do European train ticket prices generally vary in this way, or would a ticket booked on the day cost the same as one booked in advance?
My initial tests on Rail Europe suggest that the price remains constant, but it would be good to get confirmation from someone more experienced in European train travel.
Our route is likely to be: Nice to Verona to Salzburg to Vienna to Budapest.
