seat reservation advanced time

New Member

Hello everyone!

I just bought Swiss travel pass and plan to reserve a seat of Glacier Express, but to find that "seat reservation not possible"!

The date is 28th December, nearly a month from now. Why is it not possible?  Anyone got an idea? Thanks!!!seat reservation.png

Hello @wylswiss


The Glacier Express seat reservation is available here:


It is not possible to reserve these seats on the but at the SBB counter or through our Rail Service under the number 0900 300 300 (CHF1.19/min). Kindly note, with the second two options are no online-tickets available.


Have a nice day.
