My wife, my 3-year old daughter and I are visiting Switzerland this march and plan to take the GE from St Moritz to Zermatt. Since we are travelling from Geneva Airport to Interlaken, Zurich, St Moritz and Geneva, I plan to buy the 4-day Swiss Pass.

i. is there any price difference between buying the swiss pass in advance in sterling and buying upon arrival in swiss francs? (assuming exchange rates are the same)

ii. how do holders of swiss pass book and pay for the seats supplement on GE?

iii. do i have to pay the seat supplement for my 3-year daughter? Even if i do not have to pay, will they accept payment so i may ensure a seat for my daughter?

iv. I cannot access to the catering site aboard GE. how do i arrange for special meal? (i dont take red meat and a teetotal)

v. Can we disembark GE at Visp or Brig station?

thank you.

Hi Nik,

i. Yes, there's a difference: A purchase in advance (click "UK" on the Swiss Pass page) costs GBP 287.40 = CHF 430. Purchasing in Switzerland would cost CHF 452.20.
ii. You need to arrange for that separately. Please refer to the seat reservation page.
iii. You don't have to pay the supplement for children up to 5 years, but you do have to pay if you want a guaranteed seat for her.
iv. Please refer to the page I mentioned with ii.
v. Yes, you don't have to complete the whole trip. You can book a section as well.

I hope this helps. Enjoy the ride!
