Whenever reservations are required, they are an additional cost to a rail pass." <br /><br /> The scenario: I priced the 'Swiss Travel Pass - Four day continuous - 1st Class' for a price of $453 USD. With that, reserving a 1st Class seat on the "Glacier Express" is showing a price of $42 USD, which is significantly less than the ticket price without the pass option selected, so I get the benefit of purchasing the rail pass for this scenic trip on a panoramic windows train. <br /><br /> Zurich to St. Moritz <br /> When I go to book a 1st Class seat on a 'Zurich to St. Moritz' train on 16 - December, selecting 'Swiss Travel Pass', I get this message: "The fares you requested are not available with the selected rail pass. Please select a regular fare and proceed to the next step." and the 1st Class ticket price shows as $163 or $200 USD for a 1st Class ticket. <br /><br /> Zermatt to Zurich <br /> When I go to book a 1st Class seat on 'Zermatt to Zurich' trains on 20 - December, I get this message when I select 'Swiss Travel Pass', "We are unable to find any schedules to match your request. Please try your search again to continue. <br /> It is possible the journey that you are searching for is made up of more than 2 connections, or includes other modes of transportation." <br /> BUT, when I DO NOT select the tick box that I have a 'rail pass', several train options show up with a 1st Class price of $279 USD. <br /><br /> My questions: I thought the costs of ALL non-reservation required 'inter-Switzerland' train travel was covered IN FULL by the Swiss Travel Pass? If so, why do I need to select pricing to book these two train trips? Are the two train trips I detailed above "reservation required" trains? I thought that was only for the "panoramic" train routes, i.e. 'Glacier Express' or 'Bernina Express'? <br /><br /> Thanks again! <br /> Eric question complete 3 2 1 comment chur to st moritz, chur to st. moritz, glacier express, landquart to st moritz, landquart to st. moritz, st moritz, st. moritz, swiss travel pass, switzerland, visp to zurich, zermatt, zermatt to visp, zermatt to zurich, zurich, zurich to chur, zurich to landquart, zurich to st moritz, zurich to st. moritz 7815293 Exchange ticket 2018-11-08T17:33:03Z 2018-11-08T11:00:43Z Katia Silvera katia_silvera I bought a ticket from Barcelona to Paris and I would need to change the date.

Given this I have started researching the Rail Europe options for Switzerland. <br /><br /> First question: The 'Eurail Select Pass 2 countries' option (Switzerland & Italy) comes up with a cheaper price than the ''Swiss Travel Pass', (criteria: 2 Adults, 1st Class - 8 continuous days). Does the 'Swiss Travel Pass' offer more amenities or train selections than the 'Eurail Pass'? <br /><br /> Secondly: when I go to book an individual train, for example "Interlaken to Zermatt", and put in either one of these pass options, a pop-up appears on the screen that says: "The fares you requested are not available with selected rail pass. Please select a regular fare and proceed to the next step." What does this mean? That the Pass is not valid and I have to pay for this train ride? The individual 1st Class ticket is quite pricey so I need to know the Pass benefit for this trip. <br /><br /> Next: I plan to take several scenic "panoramic" train routes during my visit (listing below), are all of these covered under either Pass option? Meaning my companion and I can reserve seats without having to pay an additional fare? <br /> "GoldenPass line" <br /> "Glacier Express" <br /> "Bernina Express" <br /> "Gotthard Panorama Express" (or the regular Lugano to Lucerne train if the train with the panoramic windows is not running. Please confirm this point?) <br /><br /> And lastly, for the "Bernina Express" the plan is to get off the train in Tirano, Italy, and then take a bus ride from Tirano to Lugano, Switzerland, and then board the "Gotthard Panorama Express". to Lucerne. With the "Eurail Select Pass 2 Countries" (Switzerland & Italy) is the bus ride from Tirano to Lugano covered with this pass, meaning we will have to pay no additional fees to board the bus? <br /><br /> Thanks so much in advance !!!! <br /> Eric question complete 6 2 1 comment 7813744 Train tickets in Spain (Seville to Pamplona) appear unavailable within 60 days? 2018-11-05T15:22:47Z 2018-11-04T14:58:35Z Sophie Ashley sophie_ashley Hello I am looking to get from Sevilla Spain to Pamplona Spain early in the new year. Ideally on Jan 2, 2018. When I use these cities and this date, and other dates in December and Jan I get an error message saying they can't find any trains. When I search in early november I get results. I have read some about how tickets aren't available more than 62 days in advance, which would bring me to Jan 5. Why can't I buy these tickets for Jan 2? Why does it say there are no trains.
