Hello travelers,

You will get a free 2-day "Tell-Pass Winter" if you book a hotel room in or near Lucerne. The Tell-Pass allows free traveling on all modes of transport in the region (except ski lifts).

  • You need to book at least 2 nights between January 1 and March 31, 2017;
  • Each traveler gets a Tell-Pass (you'll get a voucher when checking into the hotel);
  • The offer does not apply to groups, only to individual travelers/families.

More information:

Yes it does, assuming you mean the Swiss Travel Pass. Free traveling versus discounted traveling on cable cars/cogwheel trains. Except Mount Rigi, which is included for free in both passes. Please see here to compare:

Hi dipanwita,

You don't have to apply, you'll get vouchers for the passes when you check into the hotel. You will get vouchers for all travelers. Promotions like this sometimes have a maximum number of passes they'll issue in the entire season. I have not heard about such a limit in this case, but of course you can contact the hotels after you've booked, just to let them know you'll be taking advantage of the offer.

Enjoy your stay!

Hi Hafizah... if this hotel is included in the list of hotels for this promotion, then u might get the free passes... however, provided they do not run out of stock like this year... we faced this... we booked a hotel that was in promotion list.. we even called them to make sure that we get the tell pass... but unfortunately, by the time we arrived, the tourism office already stopped giving the passes as they ran out of stock, with huge number of travelers availing the passes.. we traveled during early March, 2016... hope you don't face the same as you are traveling early January... but, you might as well be prepared, just in case, to avoid disappointment :)

Hi,

May I get the list of hotels in line with this promo? Also, is the Tell Pass Winter valid for April 5-17? Or is it a Tell Pass Summer?

Thanks!

Hi Hafizah,

Yes, as far as I know you will still get the Tell-Pass. There is no hotel list yet. I think nearly all hotels in Lucerne participate. Please see the Tell-Pass map for where it's valid. Prices can be found in the timetable (please read the instructions).

Hi luthienbabe,

There is no hotel list yet (see my above post). You need the Tell-Pass Summer in April.
