Hi Preethy and Aimee! Great that you got to enjoy the Golden Pass route in such peace and quiet, Preethy. You were traveling in low season, and in that case seat reservations for the Golden Pass indeed aren't necessary. As for Aimee: if you're visiting Switzerland in the busier months of June-September, reservations are recommended for the leg Montreux-Zweisimmen:www.myswissalps.com/go ldenpass/packages. But if you only plan on doing the leg Lucerne-Interlaken in 1st class, you should be fine.
Aimee, I wouldn't buy an additional Jungfrau Travel Pass if I were you (I assume that's what you mean with JTP?), unless you intend to use local mountain transportation very intensively. The additional purchase costs probably won't make up for the extra benefits. Having two passes is only economical in rare cases. The Swiss Travel Pass covers quite a lot: https://www.myswissalp s.com/swisstravelpass/ validity. Train, but and boat rides are for free and mountain routes are discounted. Some, such as Schilthorn, are even entirely for free.
