The price on MAV will be in €s but the transaction will actually be in Hungarian florins - MAV will convert the currency during the transaction.
Reservations are optional for this journey - so rail pass users don't need to reserve.
However, seats will actually be assigned when booking tickets online on MAV.
But if you book at the international rail desk at Nyugati station you will have to request that an optional reservation be added to the booking.

Note that these trains to Bratislava now depart from Budapest-Nyugati station and NOT Budapest-Keleti station.
Final Destination: Praha, Hamburg, Warsaw
All trains also call at: Vác
An unusual aspect of this route is that you could be travelling on a Czech, Hungarian or Polish train.
It's not a particularly stunning journey, but there are views over The Danube between Vác and Slovakia, from the left of the train (when facing the direction of travel).
