We wish to travel from Milan into Switzerland and then use a Swiss Rail Pass

We are flying into Milan in June and will spend 3 days there. We then plan to travel by train to St Gallen for 2 days and then Zurich for 4 days. after that we plan to explore Lausanne and the area around Interlaken. All travel will be by train.

What is the best way to do this and is it worth getting a Swiss or Swiss/Italian Rail pass>

Hello Walter,

Thanks for the question.

You can purchase Swiss Travel Pass for your travel in Switzerland.

To purchase Swiss Travel Pass click "Here".

You will need to purchase point to point ticket from Milan to Chiasso and from Chiasso you can travel with your Pass. You can follow the below route for point to point ticket:

- Milan to Chiasso - Suburbano train.

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.

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

You would need to 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. You need to select the fare which is preferable to you and then add it to Cart. Once added, you need to mention the names of the passengers to make the payment on the next page.

Hope this helps!!!

Best Regards,

Leora, Rail Europe Travel Expert.
