I have a question about SBB and hoping someone here can help. I didn't see any way to ask SBB on their website....
I am trying to purchase tickets from Bregenz to Milan (change train in Zurich HB) in August. I found the times and trains (EC196 and EC319) on the SBB website. Everything is good except the only thing stopping me from purchasing right now is a question is about the seat reservations.
The SBB website says seat reservations are recommended for the Bregenz to Zurich train (CHF 5) and compulsory for the Zurich to Milan train (free). I agreed to get seat reservations on both trains and the system says it gave us 1 window seat + 1 window seat for both trains. I think it is choosing "best available" which is probably a window view, but we don't both need windows if we would be sitting in different rows. SBB does not tell me if we are sitting in the same row or facing each other or even in the same car. I don't really care which car we are in, but I would like to sit next to my wife and prefer one of us has a window seat.
Is there any way to see what seats SBB has chosen?
Or are the seats changeable if I purchase them (blindly) and then find out the seats after I get them?
I am in the US, so I will be printing them out. From the rules, it sounds like by printing them, I lose my ability to get a refund/exchange if needed, but I guess that is ok. If I am going to reserve seats, though, I would like to reserve our two seats together. Thanks.
