my husband and I are planning to travel from Lugano to Zermatt on 19/06 on the combination of Gotthard panorama and Glacier Express

how can I reserve seats?

when ever I try to search it comes up invalid

we arrive in Switzerland on the 17/06. Is it too late if I wait until then to reserve the seats?

thanks in advance

I would just take a regular train from Lugano to Andermatt via Göschenen then book the Glacier Express from there at /. The premier part of the Gotthard route is the boat trip which you are not including.

If you are too late to get a seat on a suitable Glacier Express ( acierexpress) connection you can always follow the same route on a regular train and save the reservation fee.

Use the SBB Timetable ( metable) to plan your travel. If you are not familiar with using the timetable it will pay to first read the instructions on that page.
