Construction on rail line.

We have the global pass. I am looking to make a seat reservation from Rome to Brig. We are looking for the 9am - 2:45pm with a changeover in Milan. On your website it shows this is available but on the SBB website it says there is construction going on and there are no trains from Milan up to Simplon and you need to take a bus. Can you confirm that? And how do we go about making the reservations?

    Hi Magdalena,

    It does appear that there is construction on the rail line between Milan and Brig for upcoming dates. I would recommend that you call us at 1-800-622-8600 to verify regarding the specific date you're attempting to book for, as we would not be able to provide or verify schedules on this forum.

    Reservations would still be required on the train from Rome up to Milan. You would be able to book reservations for the train from Rome to Milan by clicking on 'Book your Rail Pass Reservations' on the homepage of our website,

    It is possible that the rail pass is all you would need for the remainder of the route up to Brig, but it would depend on the specific route for the day you'll making this trip. Normally, you would just take a direct train from Milan to Brig, for which you would also need reservations; but it appears this train won't be running for the date you'll need.
