first class, green car

What is the difference between first class and Green car?. If I buy first class do I still have to reserve seat?

Hi there,

I'd recommend reading our blog post about it! We have all the details for you listed there.

Don't forget that Green Class is traveled a lot less than ordinary class and therefor much more quiet and relaxed.

Hope this helps!
Daniel

Greetings: I guess my question should have been: Is Green car First class? Because when I look to buy the pass on your site in gives pricing only for regular and First class, so should I understand Green Car as being First class?

thanks

Hi again!

Ah yes, I get it now. Green Class is indeed 1st class where ordinary class is the equivalent of 2nd class.
