Hi,

I will proceed from Interlaken to Venice, and i will hold 8days swiss saver pass (family of 3 members).

Understand that Swiss Pass only free of charge for travel from Interlaken to Up to Domodossala. After that, i have no clue for buying ticket up to Venice. Can you please advise me this? how i proceed to buy ticket from Domodossalla to Venice?

Thank you.

Hi airy2310,

You can usually just purchase along such a ticket when you order your Swiss Saver Pass. Where are you from? That may help me to provide more details as for the best reseller.

Hello airy2310,

In that case this site would be appropriate as they sell both the pass and the tickets to Venice (here), and they ship worldwide. You have to sign for the delivery, but if your PO box location is manned that should not be a problem (at least in my experience), as you can sign when you collect the parcel. Don't forget the promo codes listed in our forum as you may be able to use them for a discount.

To just order the pass without the ticket you also have the alternative of this site. They allow collection at a Swiss airport, or shipping to any Swiss address such as an hotel. All other purchase options are at the Swiss Pass page.

If you stay in Zurich as well: hotels near the Zurich airport and rail station are listed here and here by the way. Hotels in Interlaken are listed here.

One more note: if the booking system can't find train connections from Domodossola to Venice, it may help to split the journey in two legs: Domodossola - Milan and Milan - Venice.

Hi,

1 more question. From timetable i saw, there is not only connection from Domodossola to Minalo, follow by to Venezia.

There is another route: Interlaken OST-Spiez-Milano-Venezia Mestre-Venezia S.Lucia. Is Swisspass only up to Spiez? then i need to purchase point to point station to Milano to Venezia?

Hi,

The other route you mentioned is via Domodossola as well, as the town is located between Spiez and Milano (there's a map to be downloaded from our Swiss Pass page). Domodossola may initially not be listed in the timetable if you don't have to switch trains there, but that's not relevant for your tickets. If you view the details of the train in the timetable you'll probably see that it stops in Domodossola. Your Swiss Pass is good to Domodossola. You need a ticket from there to Venice (or two separate tickets if necessary, as explained earlier).
