Hi zippy,

No problem. The Swiss Pass and seat reservations are independent components, so you can buy them separately or at the same time. It is explained on the reservation page.

A Swiss Saver Pass includes the 10% discount, and you can use it by yourself if your companion does not travel along for a day (see the Swiss Pass page).

Since you're from the UK you can get your Swiss Saver Pass from the official Swiss railways shop: en/products/swisspass. Shipping is free and there are no exchange rate costs because you can pay in GBP.

Enjoy the rides with the Swiss trains!
