Tickets verses Rail pass

Hi,

I am looking at the following trips in Switzerland in September 2017.

The cost if I buy tickets is $1,506.

If I buy the Switzerland pass it costs me $753.

Is it more cost effective to buy the pass or just the tickets?

Hello Andrew,

Thanks for the question.

As per your Itinerary it is best to purchase Swiss Travel Pass for your travel.

To purchase the Pass click "Here".

Children below 16 years are free if accompanied by at least one parent having a Swiss Pass. We issue a Swiss family card for children.

With a Swiss Travel Pass you can travel free within Switzerland on the STS (Swiss Travel System) network on trains, buses and boats. Also with a Swiss Pass you would get discounts on mountain excursions within Switzerland. These discounts can only be availed locally by showing your Swiss Pass to the ticketing office in Switzerland.

With a Swiss Travel Pass you can travel free on intercity trains within Switzerland. You will require compulsory seat reservations on Scenic trains.

Seat Reservations for Scenic trains can be done by following the below procedure.

In order to book seat reservations, please visit our website www.raileurope.com.au.

The pass seats can be reserved by clicking on “Seat Reservations” & feed in the Departure city and the Arrival city along with the travel date and preferred time & the number of passengers (Senior, adults, youth and children), and then click on “search tickets”. Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares.

Please click on the “Fare Details” tab to view details regarding the type of fare, type of seat, whether a reservation is included or not and the After Sales Policy.

Hope this helps!!!

Kind Regards,

Leora, Rail Europe Travel Expert.
