I need to make this trip on June 6th. I gather SBB is the site to make such reservations because while they have the Italian trains loaded, Trenitalia does not have the Swiss trains loaded.
While I want to get to Varenna early, it seems, the most efficient thing to do is to catch the 12:33 option (unless I am willing to leave around 7-8am.) In either case, as I was clicking through the process of making an advance purchase, when it came time to add passengers, I see a "Reductions" drop-down box to describe the discount a passenger might be entitled to. I have a month long/tourist Swiss Half-fare Card. However, the Half-fare option in the drop-down says "Half-fare travelcard 1/2/3 year". Would I just select this option, or is this another instance of me trying to go through a reservation process meant only for Swiss residents?
Also, I will be traveling with a 10 year old child. Since I have a Family Card that came complimentary with the Half-fare Card, I would anticipate his travel for the Swiss leg is free. However, there's no option to select Family Card for him in the Reductions drop-down. Plus, when I look at the final fare details, I see he is charged the same amount as I am for the Wengen to Brig leg.
Any clarifications regarding this would be quite appreciated.
