I am not able to get prices let alone book a ticket from Budapest to Vienna on August 9.
For the worst, could I just buy a ticket once I am in Budapest?

What I tried: I went to the MAV webpage, following the Hungary-MAV guide. I am getting only to the point where I choose the date and put in my birth date. After that I press the "Tickets and Prices" button and get: "No offer available for the journey with these conditions. For a list of available offers click here" BUT that leads to a dead end. So how can I find offers and book them.

Thank you for your help, Karin

Karin, nothing to worry about here. It is just that MAV allows to book tickets only 60 days in advance, while for August 9 is out of reach yet. As of now last date for you can book is July 19. So just wait for a few weeks and you won't have any problems purchasing your 13 euro ticket ;)
... could I just buy a ticket once I am in Budapest?
Sure, full fare one-way ticket is around 8000 HUF (app. 27 euro), but if you sure about date and connection, then it makes more sense just to wait until sale for August 9 is open and buy 13 euro ticket instead
