Swiss Travel Pass, Panoramic Seat Reservations, and Mountain Excursions

Neuer Autor
0 Likes

Hello, I'm from Florida, USA. My wife & I are planning our first trip to Switzerland (2-weeks in September, 2020). Our flights and hotels are booked, now we're working on our travel itinerary. We would like to purchase the following: 

(2) - 15-Day Swiss Travel Passes (consecutive)
(2) - Seat Reservations for Panoramic Trains, specifically the Glacier Express, Bernina Express (bus & train), and the Gotthard Panoramic Express (boat & train).
We are also interested in booking some Mountain Excursions (Jungfrau, Pilatus, etc).
Questions:
a) Can we purchase the Swiss Travel Passes, Seat Reservations, and Mountain Excursions all at the same time? If yes, what is the website link where this can be accomplished?
b) With the E-Ticket Option, can we have both an electronic version for our phone AND a "paper-ticket" backup?
c) Are there price advantages to purchasing in advance? 
d) How far in advance can we make these purchases and seat reservations? 
Thank You.

Good Morning @FLhiker 

Thank you for your request. We are sorry for the late respond.

a) The Swiss Travel Passes, Seat reservations and the Mountain Excursions (except to the Jungfraujoch) can be purchased online (www.sbb.ch/en). Unfortunately it is not possible to book everything at the same time. You have to split the booking and buy the needed tickets/seat reservations separately.

b) It is possible to have an electronic version for the phone and a "paper-ticket" backup with the E-Ticket Option. For this you must create a SwissPass-Login and purchase the ticket, while you are logged in. If you login with the same account on the SBB Mobile App, you will see all your tickets on your phone.

c) By purchasing ticket in advance, you can get Supersaver ticket. As well you will get a seat reservation for the Panoramic Trains (as closer the travel date, as less seats are free).

d) Tickets and seat reservations can be made maximum 60 days before the day of travel.

I wish you a nice day.

Greetings, SandrineB
