Reserve seats to Zermatt from Milan on 8 Dec

Hi

Need your advise if we need to reserve seats in advance for our train travel from Milan to Zermatt. There are 6 of us travelling together. Our plan travel date to Zermatt is 8 Dec. I checked on the train schedule that there is a 11:23 train and we would like to get on at that timing . We currently have the Eurail - Italy and Switzerland Flexi Pass . How do I go about to reserve the seats ?

Thanks

Hello Joanna,

Thanks for the question.

You will need to purchase seat reservations from Milan to Brig with your Pass and from Brig to Zermatt you can travel free with your Pass as it is via Intercity train.

Kindly follow the below procedure to purchase seat reservations.

Kindly note that pass seats can be reserved by clicking on "I have a rail Pass" on the home page of our website under "Book Train tickets" & then select the name of the pass and 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". 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.

Hope this helps!!!

Best Regards,

Thanks for your advise and the detail steps to make the seat reservation. Had a bit of trouble initially as the selected timing was not available when i was checking out and had to redo again. Finally got the seats confirmed.

Hello Leora,

It is Joanna again. I have received my seats reservation for Milan to VISP and tickets from VISP to Zermatt. In your earlier reply you mentioned that with my Italy and Switzerland Flexi pass , it includes the travel from Brig to Zermatt. Could I get a refund for the VISP to Zermatt tickets? Actually for the VISP to Zermatt train we would like to we get on the glacier express or panaromic scenic train to Zermatt. How do I go about doing that?

Thanks

Hello Joanna,

Thanks for your reply.

There are regional trains from Brig/Visp to Zermatt as this is a small route and Glacier Express trains are not available for this route individually. Brig/Visp to Zermatt is free seating and seat reservations is not mandatory for this route with a valid Pass.

May I know your 8 digit booking number that starts with 40 or 41 so that I can check the After Sales Policy of your booking and can assist you accordingly.

Awaiting your reply.

Kind Regards,

Leora, Rail Europe Travel Expert.
