Hello Suvajit!

1) Yes, your Swiss Saver Pass is valid between Basel and Interlaken. Just make sure your pass is validated before using it. You can either do this yourself or have your pass stamped in the train from Paris to Basel or at the Basel railway station. Please review the map we link to at the Swiss Saver Pass page, under the header 'Swiss Pass features': it shows the exact network of validity throughout the country.

2) Train travel between Interlaken Ost is free up to Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen/Wengen. From there, a 25% discount applies to the rest of the Jungfraujoch trip, so you have to purchase 25% discounted train tickets. Fares can be found through the Swiss timetable and at the Jungfrau Railways website.

3) Mt. Titlis can be reached by cable car from Engelberg. Trains run from Lucerne to Engelberg. The Swiss timetable and the Mt. Titlis website will help you plan your trip.

Hi starworld,

The validation method is determined by the reseller you purchased from. Either:
1) you need the pass to be validated by railway personnel (they stamp it). You need to ask the personnel of the train to Zurich to do that for you. Please ask them before you reach Basel.
2) or you can validate the pass yourself by writing your name and passport number in the designated fields. If you're not sure what to do, you may ask railway personnel in the train as well.

In either case, you should have received instructions about validating your pass.

I hope this helps. Enjoy your trip!

I also ordered my halbtax pass for one month but didn't receive any instructions on how to validate it. It does have two empty lines on the right though. One is completely empty and on the other line Pass/ID-nr is written.

Is it correct that these lines are for 1. my name and 2. my ID number?

I'm just confused that there were no instructions and that it doesn't say I need to fill out my name.

Hi danielnl,

That's indeed what these lines are for. Your name should be spelled like it is spelled on your passport/ID.

Enjoy the Swiss trains!

Dear Moderator,

If one begins journey say at 11 PM and reaches destination after 12 PM (Technically next day), will a day be lost ?

Which date has to be written on the pass ?

Hello wajid,

A Swiss rail pass allows you to finish your trip that night, even after 12 PM. You may continue traveling until 5 AM on the day following the travel day. So if you'd like to start traveling on September 4, 11 PM, you would validate your pass for September 4, and you can keep traveling until 5 AM on September 5.
