How to book railway tickets online?
Booking your train tickets online is the smartest way to obtain them as it allows you to save plenty of time and avoid such potential unpleasantries as a possible language barrier or already-sold out tickets. Norway trains are working on the Rail Ninja platform, an online service, boasting an intuitive user-friendly interface and allowing you to book rail tickets for any train in Norway in a matter of several mouse clicks. All you need to do is select your travel dates and destinations, fill out several forms, and "voila"!
What are the benefits of early booking?
The first rule of booking your train tickets (or any tickets) is the sooner you do it, the better. First of all, early booking allows you to save a significant amount of money as last-minute tickets often cost up to several times more than tickets bought in advance. Second of all, you need to keep in mind that a high-speed train is a popular way of traveling through Norway among locals and tourists alike, so rail tickets get sold-out fast and early booking is a sure way to anticipate the problem. Plus, don't forget that the earlier you book your tickets, the bigger choice you have in terms of seats and travel classes.
What do "Gr. lag", "Mva kr", and "Mva" mean on a NSB train ticket in Norway?
This abbreviations are related to the value-added tax (VAT) on the railway tickets. Gr.lag stands for "Grunnlag" and it is the basic price before VAT is inflicted. Mva is expressed as a percentage of the basic price and stands for a consumption tax, placed on the ticket (aka VAT). Mva kr is Mva, expressed in Norwegian Kroner instead of percentage terms.
