Thank you for your email. Typically, it is less expensive to purchase the tickets in advance than to purchase them on the day of travel as there are more restrictive, but less expensive fares available on our site up to 120 days prior to the the travel date. The tickets are issued as e-tickets, and we will email you the final confirmations to print out, which we automatically email to you once the order is completed. The confirmations that you print out, on these trips are your tickets that you will give to the conductor on board the train.
July is considered high season, but on the routes you are traveling, the schedules will typically remain close to the same all year.
