Reserve train tickets Bern to Wengen if already have BO regional pass?

Jump to last reply

Traveling from Paris to Wengen for 2 adults and 2 children. I plan on buying a BO regional pass because we will spend a week in Wengen. So my tickets from Bern to Wengen will be covered under the BO pass. I will need to buy a ticket from Paris to Bern, as that is not covered under the pass.

1. Do I purchase a ticket from Paris all the way to Wengen and then when I pay online, somehow get credited for the section from Bern to Wengen that is covered under the BO Pass? Or do I just buy a ticket from Paris to Bern, then make a separate reservation using the BO Pass? I want to book in advance so that I can reserve seats so that all 4 of us can sit together.

2. Do I do this online or over the phone? I don't want to wait and buy the tickets on the day of travel- it's way too stressful for me to do that, and I'm concerned we would not be able to sit together if I don't reserve seats in advance.

3. The train I want to take only has a 5 minute transfer time in Basel. That can't possibly be enough time. But I see no other options for this train. If we miss the next train, can we just get on the next one that comes along to Bern? Even if we have a seat reserved? How do I choose a ticket that has a longer transfer time than 5 minutes? I'm looking at the TGV that leaves Paris at 10:23am and goes to Basel, arriving I think around 1:26pm, The train for Bern leaves at 1:31 I think, which is not enough time. I don't want to take too late of a train, though, because I have to arrive in Wengen between 4pm and 6pm to check in to our chalet.

So complicated! Trains stress me out because I haven't ridden them for 20 years! Help a girl out!

Many thanks!
