Hi, my family (2 adults plus 1 kid) plans to take the Glacier Express on the 12/June/2018 from Zermatt to Chur. I understand that we need to check availability and make booking for this train. Can someone helps by sending me the link for making the reservation?

likewise, we would like to make booking for the Bernina Express on the 13/Jun/18 from Chur to Lugano. By the way, if we want to go back to Lucerne on the same day (13/Jun/2018), do we have sufficient time to take another train back to Luzern?

Alternatively, can we take the Glacier Express from Zermatt to Andermatt on the 12/Jun/18 and connect to another train to Luzern? Do we have sufficient time to do so?

Please advise.

thank you.

Joselyn

Hello Joselyn and Welcome to MySwissAlps,

You can make reservations for the Glacier Express here and the Bernina Express here.

Are you travelling with any sort of pass? If so be sure to select the correct option during the purchase process. Or you can just nominate you have a ticket (even if you don't) if you just want to secure a reservation at this stage.

"..... if we want to go back to Lucerne on the same day (13/Jun/2018), do we have sufficient time to take another train back to Luzern?"

Yes, if you don't mind a long day. The fastest route from Lugano to Lucerne will take about 2 hours. So you should be back in Lucerne by 7:00pm-ish. Check the Swiss Train Timetable (www.myswissalps.com/ti metable).

"Alternatively, can we take the Glacier Express from Zermatt to Andermatt on the 12/Jun/18 and connect to another train to Luzern?"

Yes, but I would recommend you don't miss the Glacier Express from Andermatt to Chur and especially the Bernina Express.

Hi, thank you for your prompt response. Please be informed that I have actually purchased the 8 days Swiss Pass and I have tried few attempts to make the bookings for the Glacier Express and Bernina Express. But I didn’t manage to do the bookings as the link I used need me to pay. Can you please send me the right links for making such reservations again?

I sent you the correct links above. The Swiss Travel Pass does not cover the cost of seat reservations. As I mentioned, part way through the payment process you will get to nominate what sort of pass you have.
