You can make reservation on the Bernina Express up to 6 months out from your travel date. The Glacier Express by comparison is limited to 3 months out. It seem that you have to make reservations for the train and the bus sections as two separate transactions. Seems odd but there you have it. I’ve tried booking through from Chur to Lugano but could never make it work.
You can actually reserve seats on the train, put that in the shopping cart then reserve seats on the bus and put that in the shopping cart and then pay for both items in the cart in one transaction.
Once you have selected seats you need to fill in passenger details and select a reduction if you have your own ticket or pass. See attached. You don’t need to have already purchased a pass to claim the reduction.
There is no option for the Swiss Family Card so if you have kids you can just nominate “No Ticket”. It doesn’t really matter what option you select at this point if you just want a seat reservation. Just so long as it is an option which leaves you with just the reservation cost and no ticket costs AND you have the correct ticket/pass when you board the train.
