For the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/swiss-pass-5934" rel="nofollow">Swiss Travel Pass</a>, you would click here: <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/en/pass/swiss-travel-pass-82" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/en/pass/swiss-travel-pass-82">http://www.raileurope.com/en/pass/swiss-travel-pass-82</a>.<br /><br />The <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/swiss-pass-5934" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/pass/swiss-pass-5934">Swiss Travel Pass</a> would be valid to cover the ticket costs for the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/glacier-express-7528" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/train/glacier-express-7528">Glacier Express</a> and your trip from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/zermatt" rel="nofollow">Zermatt</a> to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/lausanne" rel="nofollow">Lausanne</a>.<br /><br />The trains from Zermatt to Visp and Visp to Lausanne do not accept reservations, so the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/swiss-pass-5934" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/pass/swiss-pass-5934">Swiss Travel Pass</a> is all you would need to board. For planning purposes, you can still use the route search feature under 'Book Train Tickets' on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">www.raileurope.com</a>) just to view schedules for the route from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/zermatt" rel="nofollow">Zermatt</a> to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/lausanne" rel="nofollow">Lausanne</a>.<br /><br />Unlike the trip from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/zermatt" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/city/zermatt">Zermatt</a> to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/lausanne" rel="nofollow">Lausanne</a>, the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/glacier-express-7528" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/train/glacier-express-7528">Glacier Express</a> will require reservations as a supplement to the rail pass. For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/discover-europe/article/st-moritz-zermatt" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/discover-europe/article/st-moritz-zermatt">St Moritz to Zermatt</a> by searching the route on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">www.raileurope.com</a>), 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. the 'Swiss Travel Pass'). Generally, the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/glacier-express-7528" rel="nofollow">Glacier Express</a> can be reserved once within 90 days of an intended departure date. The <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/glacier-express-7528" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/train/glacier-express-7528">Glacier Express</a> can sell out quickly, so it is recommended that the reservations be purchased as soon as possible..
