I am trying to make reservation for Bernina Express and Glacier Express.

Please advise how many coaches for each connection ? I am looking to book the first class seats but they are always full. In some days, it shows the Coach 22-23 and in some days it shows the Coach 12-13.

Will the RhR to release all the seats at one time or there will have seats released in different lots ?

In addition, can I cancel the reservation and to release the seats to other ? I understand refund is not possible but I want someone can take my reservation on the train that I will not ride on.

Kind Regards

Peter

Hi Peter,

Typically there are 2 first class carriages on each train I believe but it can vary. I am pretty sure they release all their seats at once. The only way for seats to open up once they are booked is if someone cancels their reservation - so yes, if you cancel your seats they will become available to someone else.

Hi Peter,

>> I am trying to make reservation for Bernina Express and Glacier Express... I am looking to book the first class seats but they are always full.

For each train:

> For which date/s are you trying to book?

> At what station will you board the train?

> At what station will you get off the train?

> How many seats do you want to book?
