Swiss Rail Passes on routes that recommend a reservation?

Jump to last reply

Hi! We have traveled thru Europe several times, and often on trains, but this is the first time we will be purchasing a rail pass and I have a few questions!

1.) We do not need to purchase individual tickets at all, correct? Just hop on a train and show your rail pass to the conductor when they come around and they will mark off a day.

2.) My two-year-old is always free on every mode of public transport, right?

3.) We will be doing the Golden Pass train from Interlaken to Montreaux and I have read it is best to make reservations for this train in the summer ( we will be there early July). How is it possible to do that with a rail pass? We would like to do the panoramic VIP seats if possible and I believe that there is an additional charge on top of your rail pass for that, but so far I haven't found a website that actually explains how to do that! If it helps, we will likely be doing a early afternoon departure, which I think is not as popular as the late morning trains.

Thanks for the help!
