Swiss half fare pass and Glacier Express & Bernina Express tickets

Jump to last reply

I'm heading to Switzerland this September. Thanks to all the advice on this forum, I've decided to purchase the Half-fare pass for the train trips.

Have a few questions that I hope fellow Fodorites can help with...
1. Can I, should I and how do I purchase Half-fare pass from in advance and from abroad (I'm based in Malaysia)?

2. If I can buy the half-fare pass in advance, how do I use it to purchase the Glacier Express and Bernina Express tickets?

3. Can I reserve specific seats for Glacier Express and Bernina Express?

4. If the answer to 3 is yes: I will be travelling from Zermatt to St Moritz, and from St Morits to Ticino. Should I get seat on the right-side or left-side (with the destination ahead of me)? How do I know which seats are right-side or left-side ie which seat numbers?

5. For the rest of the train travels Switzerland, I deduced that I don't have to make advanced booking. Is that so? Even for Interlaken - Lucerne?

Really appreciate your opinion. Thanks.
