Another Swiss Train Travel Question, SBB, RailEurope or myswitzerland?

Jump to last reply

We are planning to buy two 8 day Swiss Travel Passes, 1st class, to use when we arrive in Geneva late September. I was planning to just get the passes at the Geneva airport.
I have been looking at what segments of travel need reservations, namely one day on the Golden Pass route and another day when we leave Lauterbrunnen to go to Milan- (Venice is our final destination that day, and I'm planning to purchase the Milan to Venice ticket on an Italian rail site, so I'd like the Swiss portion to be reserved, so that our arrival time in Milan is pretty accurate for that connection to Venice).
While looking through the various sites, I noticed there is a sale on the 8 consecutive day 1st class ticket on Rick Steves RailEurope, with no shipping fee, also myswitzerland is running the same deal (not sure if shipping is free there tho) but this deal doesn't seem to be available on the sbb.ch site.
Any reason I shouldn't purchase these passes ahead of time and save some $$$?
Can I reserve the segments I want on any rail site if I've bought the passes through either RailEurope or myswitzerland?
Or do I need to book any reservations through the site I purchased the Pass from?
