Hello Monika,

Thanks for the question.

You can purchase the Eurail 2 country pass for Switzerland and France for your travel. This pass will allow you to travel in all regional and domestic trains in the countries.

To purchase the pass click "Here".

Keep in mind that seat reservations would be mandatory for all High-Speed, Night, Scenic and Border Crossing trains. But, you will avail pass holder/discounted fares for these journeys with the pass.

In order to book seat reservations, please visit our website.

The pass seats can be reserved by clicking on “Seat Reservations” & feed in the Departure city and the Arrival city along with the travel date and preferred time & the number of passengers (Senior, adults, youth and children), and then click on “search tickets”. Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares.

Please click on the “Fare Details” tab to view details regarding the type of fare, type of seat, whether a reservation is included or not and the After Sales Policy.

The route for Bernina Express train is as below:

Chur/Davos/St. Moritz > Bernina Pass > Poschiavo > Tirano (> Lugano)

The route for Glacier Express train is as below:

Zermatt > Visp > Brig > Andermatt > Disentis > Chur > Davos/St. Moritz.

You can plan accordingly and book seat reservation under the pass as per the route you wish to take and schedules and fare will be displayed.

Hope this helps!!!

Best Regards,

Amar, Rail Europe Travel Expert.
