Budapest to Salzburg via OBB Website

I know under most circumstances rail websites will not allow you to book a trip originating in a different country. This has been the case in the past when I traveled from Budapest to Vienna. The mav-start site will not allow me to book from Budapest to Salzburg but will allow me to book Budapest to Vienna. In the past when trying to book via the OBB website for a journey originating in Budapest it has given an error. I was just on the OBB website and it allowed me to book a trip from Budapest to Salzburg.

Will the OBB website allow me to print a ticket from home? I am looking to book three tickets in business and don't want to run the risk of not being able to get a business class seat for the 5.5 hour journey.

Last time I purchased our outbound tickets from the Keleti station. My wife is pregnant and I want to ensure she is as comfortable as possible.

Thanks

It will let you print a ticket from home. Also, check if booking BUD-VIE and VIE-Salzburg on two websites separately will save you money

You'll be able to print your ticket at home.

If you book early you can use the reduced "Sparschiene" tickets (limited allocation to specific train, no exchange, refund, etc.) for €84 in business class (vs. €153,20 regular ticket)

The new ticketing website http://tickets.oebb.at is a visual-overloaded you can still use the old one under http://fahrplan.oebb.at

Any ideas on how to book a business class ticket on the new website? Sparschiene" tickets look to only be available on the new website.
