Can I use swiss family pass (travelling with myself/my wife and two kids (age 11 & 4) planning to purchase 4 days pass (1st Class) from 19th to 22nd July 2017. I am travelling Eurocity Train 158 (1st Class from Milan to Chiasso)

Once I purchase Swiss family pass. I have to book the same seat in Eurocity train 158 by using swiss pass. or just continue my journey. Kindly suggest. If booking is required how to book continue the journey from Milan to Luzern.

Hi Nandakumar,

So you and your wife each need to buy the 4 day Swiss Travel Pass and with that purchase you can add-on, for free, the Swiss Family Card to cover your 11 year old (the 4 year old is free).

No reservation or pre-booking is needed for the Swiss leg of your route (Chiasso to Luzern).
You can buy a ticket for the Italian leg (Milan to Chiasso) here.

You don't book any specific seats - simple buy the ticket for the the Italian route and have your Swiss Travel Passes to cover the Swiss part - you can stay seated on the train for the entire journey (no changing seats required).
