I need help on the following:

1) Is Half Fare Pass holder entitled to 50% discount for Mt Blanc Express (Martigny-Chamonix).

2) What is the ticket price of the Mt Blanc Express?

3) Is reservation necessary for the Mt Blanc Express?

Appreciate urgent response as we are taking the express next week.

Many thanks and best regards,

Hi Andy,

Welcome to MySwissAlps!

1) For the Swiss section (Martigny to Le Châtelard-Frontière): yes. For the French section: no.

2) The Swiss section is CHF 38 for a return ticket, so you pay half of that amount. I don't know about the French section. The website www.mont-blanc-express .com may be useful.

3) No, it's not. The timetable allows you to check this for each train.

Enjoy the trip!
