We have Swiss Travel Pass and have questions about three train trips (travelling late May and early June)::

1. non-stop Luzern to Lugano--fare is covered, but do we need seat reservations and if so how far in advance advisable to make them and do we need to pay for them?

2. Lugano to Venice--what part is covered by STPass? seat reservations needed? if so how far in advance and cost? via Chiasso or Milan better?

3. Venice to Zurich--same questions as #2 above

Thank you for this very helpful site and service.

Hello JRoger,

Welcome to MySwissAlps! Please find your answers below:

1. No, you don't need seat reservations unless you decide to travel by the special Gotthard Panorama Express train.

2. The leg up to Chiasso is covered. Validity details can be found at ravelpass/validity. You need an additional ticket Chiasso-Venice: ickets/italy. The timetable will provide all possible connections: ble.

3. Likewise, the leg Chiasso-Zurich is covered and Venice-Chiasso has to be paid for separately.

You can also study "Traveling beyond the area covered by the pass" at ravelpass/howtouse.
