Hi,

I have my EuRail Global saver pass with me.
I'll be in Switzerland for 4 days in March last week just want to know that i need to buy any other swiss pass also.
Or no swiss pass will be required as i'm having the EuRail Global saver pass.
One thing more will i be getting bus and train transportation free with the help of the EuRail Global saver pass or only train will be free.

And what is reservation charges that i need to pay on the Lucerne to Interlaken route and whether these reservation can be done online if yes then please help to provide the URL for this.

Regards
Rajeev

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!

Just one more query. I have my Swiss saver pass with me, just want to know what reservation charge i need to pay on the Golden Pass panoramic line from Interlaken to Lucerne.
I need to book the tickets in advance or it can be done on spot in Interlaken also on the same dame.

As the Hotels check out time in interlaken is mostly 11:00 am want to know whether the hotels provide any locker facilities to the customers after there check out.

Hi rajagilent. Seat reservation information is available through this page. If you get to the Golden Pass page, enter details about your journey and pick a 1st or 2nd class seat, prices will be displayed.

Some hotels may offer lockers or another luggage storage facility. You can best ask them in advance. If not, lockers are available at the railway stations of Interlaken.
