Dear Maggie/Forum: I've gone to both the Golden Pass website and the SBB website and I'm a bit confused by the pricing information appearing on each of the sites:
When you go through the reservation steps using the Golden Pass site, after you've chosen a seat to reserve it takes you to a pricing page showing a charge per seat of 5 CHF (I'm trying to keep it simple, but this is for the Interlaken to Zweisimmen leg only). I gather that if I went through with the purchase, this would only get me a reservation and not the ticket itself. Also note that the site has not asked whether I have a Pass.
On the SBB site, the pricing is 84 CHF for a 1st class seat on the Golden Pass train and it has a "Discount/Half fare, etc." box to check that reduces the amount to 42 CHF.
So if I have a 4-day Swiss Flexi-Pass, do I have to pay for the ticket at a 50% discount, or do I just have to pay for a reservation. My understanding was that of Maggie's, i.e. if I have a pass, I only have to pay for the reservation, but I don't see how that is done using the SBB site.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance
