Good evening from Mike and Karen in Australia.
I would like some advice on purchasing the Swiss Travel Pass and booking scenic trains with seat reservations please.
Our plan is to purchase the Swiss Travel Pass, 8 day first class. (Booking first class due to the extra room for luggage and difficulty in lifting heavy items overhead)
we arrive in Zurich 28th August 2020.
Saturday 29th August 2020 we will travel on the 06:05 Golden Pass train to interlaken and then make our way to Wengen. (How do we reserve 1st class seats for this trip)
Tuesday 1st September 2020 we will travel from Interlaken via Brig to Chur on the Glacier Express Train. (How do we reserve 1st class seats for this trip)
Wednesday 2nd September 2020 we will travel on the 08:32 Bernina Express Train Chur via Pontresina to Tirano. (How do we reserve 1st class tickets for this trip)
Wednesday 2nd September 2020 we will disembark the Bernina Express Train in Tirano and catch the bus to Lugano where we have seen on this forum that we should sit on the left side of the bus. Can you please advise (How we reserve 1st class tickets for the train) and (How to reserve two tickets on the bus trying to ensure we can choose a seats on the left side of the bus.
I have tried to use the different sites but have become a little confused when trying to make reservations. I was wondering if I can make reservations for the four trips in one go or do I need to make one reservation then pay for this before making the next reservations as I thought there may be a way to make all the reservations in one go and make the total payment in one transaction.
I was looking for advice if I should look at purchasing the Swiss Travel Pass now and make all the reservations now or is there any benefits on waiting until closer to the travel dates to make the purchase and make the reservations.
Any assistance and advice will be greatly appreciated.
Regards Mike and Karen.
