I dont think so - and for €11 a sleeper is a bargain!

Yeah :) , that's true. One more question about the Thessaloniki - Beograd route or well for the whole Balkan railways, are delays frequent?

There are seats on Belgrade - Thessaloniki night train, and they are free. There is also one day train on that route.
To go to Athens, you have to change trains in Thessaloniki.
On Belgrade - Sofia - Istanbul route, there used to be direct sleeper only for 15 - 20 EUR supplement (3, or 2 bed compartment), but from December 2008. it isn't runnig anymore. Don't be fooled by timetables which say that it's running. They told it will run again in July, but still no...only way to find out, if it started running again, is to ask directly on Belgrade or Istanbul sirkeci stations.
All in all, if you need to go from Belgrade to Istanbul, you need to take ordinary seat to Sofia at 7:50, and then change there to night train to Istanbul, frome where you have couchette (not more than 10EUR) or sleeper.

This is probably a slightly ditzy question, but I'd rather be sure.

My friend and I (both female) are planning to travel from Beograd to Thessaloniki next year, among other journeys. Can we take two beds in a 3 bed sleeper at 20 EUR each, and presumably some other person taking up the third bed, or do you have to have three people and completely occupy them?

Thanks for any help! :)

Hi!

You dont have to fully book a sleeper compartment, if you make two reservations in a triple sleeper the thrid bed could be occupied by another person or not. I've travelled several times in a 3 or 4 bed sleeper and ended up having the whole compartment for my own. :)

Timetables should be the same as of now - but there is the big timetable change in mid-december (as every year) which might affect these connections as well. As soon as there are reliable informations we check all topic and correct the data if neccessary. ;)

http://forum.interrail.net/no-international-connections-to-from-greece-from-01-01-2011-t5508.html

Like all international train routes to and from Greece, the overnight train «Hellas-Express» and the day train «Olympus» from Belgrade - Skopje - Thessaloniki have been discontinued indefinitely last February, due to the dire economic situation in Greece. The advice: take a long-distance bus...
