Hi Dhara4567and welcome to MySwissAlps.com!

July is usually a busy month, so finding seats on trains might be a bit more difficult than in other months. First class is usually less crowded than the second class. Read more about the differences between the 2 classes here: www.myswissalps.com/forum/topic/1st-class-upgrade-with-2nd-class-swiss-travel-pass.

If you want you can upgrade your Swiss Travel Pass.

Did you know that you can check the 'Occupancy rate' of the trains? If you visit the SBB timetable, it will show you each route and each train. 3 red people sign means highly occupied. See the attached screenshot.

If you see that a train will be crowded, then you can take the next train.
