Do I need to make seat reservations for travelling in Bernina express with 2nd class swiss pass? We are a family of 4, 2 adults and 2 kids aged 13 and 11 and plan to take the Bernina express roundtrip from Chur to Tirano and back.

How much do seat reservations cost in USD?

Hi napp6. Yes, you should arrange for your seat reservation. You can do so by filling out your country of residence in the upper right corner of the seat reservation page, or alternatively click the right Bernina Express link under the header 'How to purchase railway seat reservations ' at the same page.

Thanks Annika for your prompt response!

However, the seat reservation at rail europe, the link you provided, does not work.

I was able to finally book the Bernina Express seats at http://www.rhb.ch Very effecient website.

I was very dissappointed with the rail europe online reservation website. It can be very misleading.

Hi napp6,

The RhB site is indeed a good one. The Rail Europe seat reservation page may have had a temporary problem. I currently see available Bernina Express seats for pass holders there. The only thing that's a bit weird is that the system marks that train as a bus. It's really a train you'd book there though. Anyway, good to hear that you completed your booking!
