Hi Ari,

So you have made a reservation in 2nd class? You'll need a 1st class reservation and then upgrade to a 1st class ticket (your Swiss Travel Pass acts as a 2nd class ticket).

The upgrade can be done at the station any time before boarding. The reservation should be done as soon as possible. If you have already reserved a seat in 2nd class you will want to contact the company you used and explain you really wanted a 1st class reservation.

There shouldn't be a charge but the company may have a change fee or your reservation may be non-refundable.

The upgrade cost is 1/2 the price between 1st class fare and 2nd class fare. For that route you are looking around 60chf.
