Hope someone can help me - we will have swiss flexi passes that will be valid for a day when we will be travelling from within Switzerland to Zurich and then travelling on to Lindau (Bodensee). I see there are plenty of trains from Zurich to Lindau either direct or with a change or 2. Just wondering how we go with the flexi pass as we will be travelling "beyond" Switzerland. Do we need to pay extra or how do we sort out what train we can get with the pass?. Can we only get on a train that goes from Zurich to the "border" with the pass and then get on another train and pay from there to Lindau or how will it work? Any help would be much appreciated!

Hello ozziegal! Welcome to our forum. The Swiss Flexi Pass covers all trains, until that train reaches the border (please check the map we link to on the Swiss Flexi Pass page to see which towns are on the border). You just need to make sure you have purchased a ticket that covers the leg from the border to Lindau. Such a ticket can be purchased locally, and through various online resellers as well (such as the timetable, or the along with your passes). If you have your pass and the additional ticket, you can just stay seated at the border. One more thing to keep in mind is that your pass does not include seat reservations (some international trains may require them).

Does this answer your question?

That's great. Thank you. I thought that must be the story but its good to get confirmation. Now just checking the quickest routes from Zurich that take best advantage of the pass. Looks like it may just be easier to use pass to Winterhur and pay from there as the connections are quicker rather than going to St Margrethan or Romanshorn etc. We'd save by going right to border with the pass but would lose a lot of time.
