To board Wilhem tel express from bellinzona I need to travel from lugano to bellinzona. I found euro city 310 appropriate. Can I use swiss travel pass for this journey. Is there a separate reservation required

Hi kochumon,

Yes, the Swiss Travel Pass covers Lugano-Bellinzona. The type of train isn't relevant. You'd best check the validity map at isstravelpass/validity.

As for the Wilhelm Tell Express: if you want to use the official Wilhelm Tell Express package, reservations and a surcharge are required: lhelmtellexpress/ticke ts. If you just use regular trains and boats covering the same route, but without the extras, you don't need additional reservations or surcharges.
