Tickets in Austria
The ÖBB sells domestic tickets using a price based only upon distance traveled, regardless of when you buy the ticket and which train you take. The basic fare is quite expensive, but Austrian Railways offer some interesting discounts. If you buy a ticket from Salzburg to Vienna that ticket is valid for any train that takes you to Vienna, even for a foreign train stopping inside Austria.
Tickets can be ordered (and paid for) on the web, including itineraries with connected trains and involving narrow-gauge railways (like in the Zillertal valley). You can also reserve seats for a small fee: that is definitely recommended if you travel with luggage. Tickets ordered online should be printed, to be presented, barcode-scanned and stamped when asked for by a ticket inspector onboard.
There are ticket machines at all sizable train stations and onboard some regional trains. For some suburban railways, you are required to have a ticket before boarding (these are noted with SB). Ticket machines do not display or print itineraries, and many train stations only display basic timetables. It is best to find an itinerary on the Austrian Railways website trip planner. Stations also provide pamphlets with detailed timetables, but they assume that you know which line to board to get to your destination and can only be obtained during office hours.
