    Hi Saisree,

    Rail passes cover ticket costs for trains running ‘inter-city’ (between different cities) within the country or countries included on the pass.

    When applicable, reservations are a supplementary cost to a rail pass. Within Italy, reservations are required on Frecciarossa, Frecciargento, Frecciabianca, InterCity, and night trains.

    Connections from Milan to Zermatt take about 3.5 hours in duration and involve changing trains once in Brig along the way. Trains from Milan to Brig do require reservations as a supplement to a rail pass. Trains from Brig to Zermatt do not accept reservations, so the rail pass is all you would need to board.

    For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations from Milan to Brig by searching the route on our homepage (www.raileurope.com), checking the box that says ‘I have a rail pass’, and then indicating the type of rail pass with which you'll be traveling (i.e. a ‘Eurail Select Pass 3 Countries’).

    For planning purposes, you can still use the route search feature under 'Book Train Tickets' on our homepage (www.raileurope.com) just to view schedules for the non-reservable segment from Brig to Zermatt.
