STS Pass

I've brought the Swiss Travel Pass for 8 days which will be started at March 30, 2018.

Do we still need to purchase train ticket and or reserve seats for the following routings?

March 31, 2018 Zurich to Luzern

April 2, 2018 Luzern to Zermatt

April 3, 2018 Zermatt to Gornergrat

April 4, 2018 Zermatt to Chur (Glacier Express, tickets bought)

April 4, 2018 Chur to Zurich

April 5, 2018 Zurich to Milan (International tickets bought)

I've searched online to see if I can reserve seats in advance, I found no seat is available to reserve but it showed me the price of flexible fares. I'm so confused.

Thanks!

Regards,

Grando Ng

Hello Grando,

Thanks for the question.

You can follow the below for seat reservation.

- Zurich to Lucerne, Lucerne to zermatt via Bern and Visp, Chur to Zurich - seat reservation not required as these are intercity and eurocity train which you can travel free with the pass.

- Zermatt to Gornergrat - With the pass you will receive discount when you purchase locally for mountain train or cable car.

Hope this helps!

@Lai Kuen Ng,

I am also thinking of buying the 8days swiss pass. May i know what you meant by Glacier Express, tickets bought?

Do you mean, you bought on top of your 8day swiss pass? Do you get any discount?

Appreciate your reply.

In order to secure our seats and it seems a must to reserve seat at Glacier Express. is I have paid the surchage of seats reservation for 2 passengers as well as three courses lunch for each of us. Seat reservation for each from Zermatt to Chur is CHF 33. I believed it is a discounted price.
