Difference in ticket prices when booking for two passengers

New Author

Hello SBB Community,

I recently tried to book train tickets from Basel SBB to Paris Gare de Lyon for May 16th, 2023. When booking for one person, the price was 57 CHF. However, when I tried to book for two people, the total price was not 114 CHF (57 CHF x 2) but instead 128 CHF. Could you please help me understand why there is a difference in ticket prices when booking for two passengers?

Thank you for your assistance.
