About tickets and reservations

You can buy a point to point ticket for the Glacier Express, but it's recommended to look into the rail passes as they provide free or discounted traveling.

Note that you need to book your seats in advance. The reservation includes a supplement for the extra services of the Glacier Express. You can book seats 3 months ahead of time.

You're not required to travel the full stretch from Zermatt to St. Moritz. The reservation fee for 1st and 2nd class varies by the traveled distance and the season, and needs to be paid per person and single journey. The cheapest season is mid December to late March.

Reservations for Excellence Class cost CHF 420 per person and single journey, regardless of the traveled distance and season. You also need a 1st class ticket or pass.
