Hello train travelers,

As of January 1, 2013, the prices of the Swiss Travel System passes will increase by 2.5% on average. This concerns the "official" (local) prices, but most resellers will probably adjust their prices accordingly on or shortly after January 1. Exact prices for each reseller are hard to predict, as prices depend on your country of residence and exchange rates, shipping rates, promotions, etc. If you have planned a trip to Switzerland for early 2013, you may want to order your rail pass on December 31 at the latest (or even before December 28: please read this). Most resellers allow to purchase passes for traveling 6 months ahead or even more.

To see current prices, just go to the appropiate rail pass page, which are listed below. Then select your country of residence, travelers and rail pass type to see all purchase options and prices of the various resellers.

A few examples of current and new prices (2nd class seats, shipping & handling not included):Discounts on hotel bookings, city tours and other day trips will increase from at least 10% to at least 15% (maximum: 50%).

Of course, there will be special offers in 2013 also. The Swiss Pass 4+1 for example.
