Welcome to MySwissAlps, Amell!
Within Switzerland, you can simply board any type of train (except for some special panoramic trains) at any time with your Swiss Travel Pass, without the need to make reservations in advance. Please check our validity page to see what's included.
International trains are an exception to this rule. Trains crossing the border often require a seat reservation, and you'll have to buy additional regular tickets for the legs that are not covered by the Swiss Travel Pass. In your case, this applies to the Italian legs of your inbound and outbound trip, up to/from Domodossola or Chiasso. Whether you need seat reservations can be checked in the Swiss timetable: fill out your departure and arrival station and click the 'plus' symbol for your connection. An 'R' in a square means you have to arrange for seat reservations.
