GoldenPass Express Prestige Upgrades


I’m looking to book me, my wife and a 10 year old child on the GoldenPass Express Prestige Class between Interlaken and Montreux.

I’ve found the train and likely we’ll want the 9:08a departure from Interlaken Ost.

We currently have 2nd class Swiss Travel Pass with the Family Card (for free travel for our child).

As I understand it, we would need to upgrade point to point from 2nd class to first class, and then again to Prestige class, and add reservations (recommended)?

However, as I go into the SBB app, I only have an option to upgrade from 2nd class to 1st class point to point. How do I upgrade all the way to Prestige?

Regarding seat reservations I understand they won’t open up until 2 months out from our travel date.

Thanks for your advice.

You book the Prestige Class reservations on the Golden Pass app. I have mine booked for October and I booked it last November, so it is a lot more than two months before.

I have never had a Swiss travel pass, we have just bought a Saver Day Pass for our trip, but I believe you only need to upgrade to first 0to ride in Prestige, there is an extra reservation charge on the seat though.

Hope this helps.

Thank you. I’m assuming the “Golden Pass App” is only available to local residents? I don’t see the app in my App Store in the United States. I can use the website, however.

@Stevie Ricks, I am sorry, you are right, I meant the website, no idea why I typed the app.

Thank you for this timely advice. We are planning a trip on the Golden Pass train in October and I was wondering about when to get the tickets!
