Hi, I am having no luck booming seat reservations for the Switzerland one country pass. Been on all the websites Interail has recommended and all say the reservation is unavailable or no required. 

Any help would be grateful.

In Switzerland you don’t need reservations, only on Panoramic trains like Glacier Express. 

Wich route are you trying to reserve?

Waste of money to reserve seats in Switzerland… except if you use the touristic trains.


You can travel on the hourly local trains over the route of the Glacier Express. On the Bernina Express route you can travel in the ‘ordinary’ coaches. My experience was that the trains had large windows, some of which opened. One train had a limited number of seats that were not reserved for parties - the ‘Golden Pass’ train from Montreux.
