We will be visiting Switzerland soon. We are a family of 5, 3 children under 15. I will be purchasing 3 x junior travel card @ CHF 30 each for my 3 children from Geneva train station. I was purchasing mine and my husband’s ticket on sbb.ch and the cheapest fare available for us was Supersaver Ticket, Half-Fare Travelcard. It gave me an option to upgrade to 1st class by adding 48CHF for the trip. There is an info box however next to kids junior travel card that says “It is not possible to upgrade class, change routes or change trains using a supersaver ticket.” and “Reduced prices for Half-Fare Travelcard holders, children between 6 and 15, dogs (always 2nd class).”
This has caused me a bit of confusion.
a) If it’s not possible to upgrade class on a supersaver ticket, why does it give me an option to upgrade at extra cost? Is it possible to travel in first class with a supersaver half fare travel card?
b) If I upgraded my supersaver ticket to first class option, can my kids travel with me in first class on their junior travel card?
Appreciate anyone who can help.
