Hi Rajesh,

You can arrange for that at any staffed train station: myswissalps.com/ train/practical/ 2nd1stclass. The price is half the difference between 1st and 2nd class, so that's CHF 56.50 for each adult, and nothing for the child.

Enjoy the train ride!

Thanks. Can you also please advise if this upgrade to 1st class can be done before the date of travel or it has to be done on the same day of travel.

We are arriving in Zurich on 4 July and travelling from St Moritz to Zermatt on Glacier express on 7 July. So can the upgrade be purchased from the staffed station on 4th or 5th july.

Regards,

rajesh

Hi Rajesh,

Sure, you can buy it whenever convenient for you. Just mention you'll need the ticket for July 7.
