Hi

I am planing to visit Swiss for 6days during September, and planning to buy 4days Swiss pass as well. My question is to get offer for Swiss pass should it be within that selected period of the pass? Please explain. Assume I consume Swiss pass first 4 days, and I need to go Mt Pilatus, Titlis, or Top of Europe at 5th day, then will I get discount for used Swiss pass.

Can I buy 2 for 1 Swiss Pass at Swiss railway station, or need to buy through online, if so how many days will take to send to UAE (Dubai).
Are there differences 2 for 1 offer Swiss pass and Swiss pass? If so what are the differences.

We have received our passes which have what I assume is the start date already printed out on the top left of them of the 01/09/2012.
There is no where else to put in a start date, just the spaces for the three free days of travel.

Hi Kamal,

I guess you need the 4-day Swiss Saver Flexi Pass for your 6-day stay. That would provide 4 free travel days and 2 days of discounted traveling. The 2-for-1 offer just provides a discount, the pass you'll get is a regular pass. Please check this page for details about the pass, including points of sale (on the right side) with shipping details and prices, and a downloadable map showing what's covered.

Please post further questions about this in this related topic. The current topic is about a different rail pass.

Hi benrudd1,

I'm sorry to hear so! I'm not sure where you purchased but I would advice to contact that reseller and ask them to solve this.

Hi

Also, I noticed that as per transport map, www.myswissalps.com/train/ticketspasses there are broken red lines in between interlaken to Zermatt.
Is that mean I need to pay extra if I want to go to Zermatt from Interlaken, or else is it totally free.
What does mean of this Lines with discount and given different color. Please clarify.
This is applicable for all the swiss pass as per that map.

Hi Kamal,

That's just to indicate a tunnel, but it's free as well.

Thank you so much for quick response and clarification.
Just a another quick question. When I am booking a pass, it request a date. Is it possible to change dates in case if I will change my plan? may be it for a day or couple of days change.

Hi Kamal,

You're most welcome! A Swiss Saver Flexi Pass will usually have a one-month time frame printed on it (as described in this topic). The free travel days can be selected freely, so that allows you to have your first travel day a bit later. The timeframe still ends on the date printed on the pass though.

Again I want to request you to please post further questions about this in this related topic. The current topic is about a different rail pass.

Hi,

I would like to ask what is the best route to travel from Bern to Wengen?

I have purchased the Berner Oberland pass and based on the rail network covered by this pass, I got 50% discount from Bern to Thun, and it's free from Thun to Interlaken to Wengen.

So is that mean I have to buy ticket from Bern to Thun first, and then transfer from Thun to Interlaken?

Can I buy direct ticket from Bern to Interlaken? Do I get any discount for this ?

Thank you.
Annika

Hello yului83. You can find the route in the Swiss timetable. As for tickets: you'll need a 50% discounted ticket from Bern to Thun. If you use a free travel day on your Regional-Pass, the trip to Wengen will be for free from Thun onward, so you won't need another ticket for this leg. If you use a discounted travel day, you also need a 50% discounted ticket for Thun-Wengen (so in this case you can also buy one discounted ticket for the entire leg Bern-Wengen).

Hello. My husband and I will be in Switzerland 16-Sept thru 22-Sept. I would like to purchase the 2-for-1 Bernese Oberland Pass for that time period. But we are leaving in less than a week to start our cross Europe trip. Is it possible to have the pass waiting for pickup at a rail station? Or can we purchase the passes when we arrive in Switzerland?

Thank you
Becky

Hi Becky! The 2 for 1 offer has to be purchased online. Estimated delivery dates can be found in our purchase overview in the upper right corner of the Regional Pass-page. Enter your country and click 'Show more information'. If you're not able to receive the pass at your home address in time, you can have it shipped to Switzerland. Pick-up at a rail station isn't an option, but delivery to your hotel or holiday apartment is. You can ask the hotel personnel to receive and hold the passes for you.
