Class upgrade

Treat yourself to a trip in first class

If you have a ticket, a day pass or a GA for the 2nd class, you can subsequently convert your ticket into a 1st class ticket. This allows you to travel in 1st class on a specific route or for a whole day or even a whole month.

Tip: travelling with a Supersaver Class Upgrade is particularly good value. Look out for corresponding offers in the BLS Mobil App or in the BLS Webshop.

Supersaver class upgrade for a specific route

Would you like to enjoy the comfort of 1st class at the best possible price? Then look out for the Saver Class Upgrade in the BLS Webshop and benefit from a discount of up to 70% on your upgrade from 2nd class to 1st class.

A Saver Class Upgrade is only valid for the selected day of travel and the selected public transport connection (train commitment). It can be combined with almost all 2nd class tickets or travelcards (e.g. GA Travelcard, Point-to-Point Travelcard, Saver Day Pass etc.). The only exception: the Saver Class Upgrade cannot be combined with supersaver tickets.

How to purchase your Saver Class Upgrade:

  • Saver Class Upgrades are only available online.
  • Enter the desired route and travel day in the online timetable.
  • Select your preferred connection and click on the corresponding price in blue.
