    Hello,

    A Swiss Pass does cover the Glacier Express, Bernina Express, and GoldenPass scenic routes. Reservations would just be a supplementary cost to the rail pass. For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations by clicking on 'Book your Rail Pass Reservations' on our homepage.

    The Glacier Express runs between Zermatt and St. Moritz and does require reservations in addition to the rail pass.

    Reservations are also required on the Bernina Express in addition to a rail pass. The Bernina Express consists of a bus between Lugano and Tirano and a train between Tirano and either St. Moritz or Chur. When you go to purchase reservations for the Bernina Express on our site, you would piece together the connection by doing a separate search for each segment. Therefore, you would do one search to access the bus between Lugano and Tirano and another search to access the train between Tirano and either St. Moritz or Chur.

    The GoldenPass route runs between Lucerne and Montreux, and it involves changing trains twice en route; once in Interlaken and once in Zweisimmen. On the GoldenPass, it is really only advisable to have reservations on the segment between Zweisimmen and Montreux. Reservations aren't really necessary on the segment of this route between Lucerne and Interlaken, and the segment between Interlaken and Zweisimmen.

    If you decide to purchase reservations for the entire route of the GoldenPass, you would just break up your search once in Interlaken when you go to purchase the reservations on our site. Therefore, you would do one search for the segment between Lucerne and Interlaken and another search for the segment between Interlaken and Montreux. Otherwise, you can purchase reservations only for the segment between Zweisimmen and Montreux, and then the Swiss Pass is all you would need to board the train between Lucerne and Interlaken and the train between Interlaken and Zweisimmen.

    Generally, these trains can be booked once within 90 days of an intended date of departure.

    For a trip up Mount Titlis, you would still have to purchase the separate Mount Titlis Pass. You would check costs for and purchase the Mount Titlis Pass by clicking here: http://www.raileurope.com/activities/mount-titlis/index.html.

    If you'll be traveling with the Swiss Pass, you would purchase the '1 Day Round-Trip Journey From Engelberg - For Use Only With Swiss Pass' option of the Mount Titlis Pass.

    Reservations are not accepted on the Mount Titlis trip from Engelberg. The Mount Titlis Pass is an open voucher that is all you will need to board. The trek up Mount Titlis is by cable cars that do not have set schedules, as they operate continuously. The first cable car is from Engelberg to Trübsee, the second cable car is from Trübsee to Stand, and the third cable car is from Stand to Titlis.
