» Seats’ occupation at sleeping car
Sleeping cars are considered as hotel accommodation units on wheels and are treated and priced as such. In this type of car, the sale of a single seat in a cabin is mandatory made by specifying the passenger’s gender, namely “Male” (“M”), “Female” (“F”). In the case where simultaneous reservation of all seats in a cabin is required, these are necessarily allocated to the same cabin and there is no need to specify the type of passengers (for families or persons wishing to travel together regardless of gender), the cabin being defined in gender perspective as “Indifferent” (“I”).
At one time in a sleeping car can be opened maximum two cabins, one for men (marked “Male”) and one for women (marked “Female”).
Only after the occupancy of the vacant seat from the already open cabin is allowed the sale of a new cabin for the respective type.
Passengers wishing to purchase a travel card with the bottom bed reservation and receiving the information that there is already open a cabin of the same type at which only the top bed is available, to have as reservation the bottom bed can only opt for the purchase of a full cabin, traveling in single regime (the passenger will pay the transport fare and the single cabin supplement).
» Seats’ occupation at berth cars
In the case of berth cars, seat sales are made taking into account the customer’s preferred bed position (top, middle, bottom) within the limits of the available seats, allowing simultaneous sale of all cabins in the respective car.
At berth cars, cabin seats (which may be 4 or 6 beds depending on their type) are sold regardless of gender or mixed regime.
» Not presenting at the car when leaving the boarding station
When the passenger is not present at the sleeping or berth car, to occupy the seat within 1 (one) hour from the departure of the train at the boarding station (indicated on the bed / berth supplement), the seat is considered to be free (art. 49.4 Uniform Norms for Romanian Railways, approved by OMT no. 655/2007, as subsequently amended and supplemented).
