We are traveling to Switzerland in July. We have purchased the 3 day Flexi Pass. From everything I read it appears that I do not need reservations to travel from Basel to Interlaken OST and Interlaken OST to Murren. We will be arriving in Basel via the high speed train from Paris. We do have reservations for this. We were hoping to make the 12:01 or 13:01 train to Interlaken, however, when I looked it up it is a Intercity Express or Intercity train. My concern is that when I was on RE website the 12:01 train is labeled reservations required and the 13:01 train is labeled reservations recommended. I would really like to NOT make reservations to save money and allow my plans to be flexible, but I want to be sure that I should be ok not making them.
Also I am also traveling from Murren to Lucerne on the 18 and Lucerne to Basel on the 20. I am assuming I will not need reservations for these either.
Finally, if a seat on a train is reserved for any leg of the trip, do they label it so we know not to sit in it?
