Hello we are 2 adults and 2 kids (7yrs, 3yrs) with the following itinerary:

Day 1. Zurich airport to St Moritz
Day 8. Glacier express from St Moritz to Zermatt
Day 12. Zermatt to Zurich

We'd like to travel 1st class, reserve seats for each of us prior to travelling, and we'll have a lot of ski gear.

My questions:

what pass is most cost effective (1month swiss flexi pass?),
does it apply to all train trips listed?
does an accompanying Swiss Travel System Family Card ensure free tickets for the 7 & 3 year olds and their own seat?
Can I / how can I pre-book seats (is there additional expense?)?

Many thanks for your assistance.

Hello Markdoug, and welcome to our website,

A 3-day 1st class Swiss Saver Flexi Pass would be ideal for your trip. It covers everything for free, except for the seat reservations. The children travel along for free with the Family Card you mentioned. Again, this does not include seat reservations. All about booking seats can be found here. That page also includes information about the luggage service. That would be worth your consideration if you do not want to carry your skis yourself.

Have fun!
