Hi, I will be travelling to Interlaken From Milano, Itlay in September, In the SBB.Ch site I found the required ticket with offered discount , the problem is that I can book the ticket online but I can not have electronic ticket to print, and the only ways is either to get it from SBB ticket office inside Switzerland or to have it posted to me by mail. As I live in Egypt, the mailing option will cost 90 euros, as stated by the SBB ticket shop on the web. This is of course makes it very expensive. Nevertheless, to pick it up from SBB office inside Switzerland is impossible as I will start from Milano Italy. I need your help in this issue . Any ideas?Thank you

Welcome to the forum mowaffak! You can also order your seat reservation/train ticket through or Rail Europe World. They both charge less for delivery than the SBB and you could also combine this with an online purchase of a Swiss rail pass, if you need one. I hope that helps you out!

Thank you very much Annika. I just have booked the tickets (Milano-Interlaken) through Rail Europe World , and got a very good deal with very cheap shipment fees (12 Euros) to Egypt, instead of the 85 CHF by SBB. It was a great helpful tip from you.
