I have a 2nd class Swiss Pass Ticket and I have made Reservation for a Class 1 ticket for the Glacier Express travelling from Zermatt to St Moritz on 19 Oct 2016. It seems like the 2nd Class tickets have been fully reserved. Where can I buy the upgrade tickets to upgrade my Class 2 Swiss Pass to Class 1 for this single journey and how much is the cost?

Can I buy the upgrade tickets in advance?

Hi Jonathan, welcome to MySwissAlps!

I assume you have a Swiss Travel Pass. You can buy an upgrade ticket at any staffed station, even just before your trip starts. The price is CHF 56.50.
