Hello Rajeev, welcome to MySwissAlps!
It depends on your exact plans whether or not you need an extra Swiss Pass
, or more probably, a Swiss Half Fare Card
on top of your Eurail Global Pass
. If you follow the links you can download maps that show what's covered for each pass. In short: Eurail passes cover trains and some boats for free, plus discounts on some mountain transport routes. Swiss passes cover trains, buses, boats and many museums for free, plus discounts on most mountain transport routes.
Reservations are not necessary for Swiss trains, unless the timetable says differently. Please check this page
for details and reservation links.
Enjoy your stay!
