I am seeking some guidance. I reserved our seats successfully for GEX travelling 21 Sept from St Moritz to Zermatt on the 903. That was back on 1 July!! I have now gone to purchase the tickets and I can not get option for 903 on 19th for tickets.
On sbb.ch ticket shop it does not give a fare/buy option for GEX only standard trains. On glacierexpress.ch buy tickets, it advises the train is full and only offers 905 on Thursday 22 Sept. I have sent an email to glacierexpress.ch using their "contact us" facility from website asking question but not received a response yet.
Are you able to clarify how I purchase the rail tickets?
We have (print at home) Swiss Half Fare Cards. I have been able to purchase our other train tickets from sbb.ch easily - and because we have planned schedule I have purchased smartsaver fares from Zurich to St Moritz and Zermatt to Geneva and received great savings. We are then in Lauterbrunnen for 3 days but will wait to see what the weather brings and use our half fare cards as we decide what we do each day. (We pick up a rental in Geneva as we are then doing self-drive Austria, Italy and back to Geneva)
I have very much appreciated all the advice and ideas everyone contributes, especially Arno, Annika and member Slowpoke :-))
