Yes ,you got it correct but now I had a situation again that I didn't knew about this Swiss border thing..Can I not use my Euro Rail Pass since the train is Direct from Zurich HB to Paris...And I have already taken 1 free on 1 swiss pass which I intent to use when I start back from Germany from Basel onwards... Also let me know ,since I will be having a connecting train from Basel to Chur and have to change at Basel..How to Validate the pass at Basel .
Is this promotion pass has to be used in uninterrupted 4 days in a stretch or I use it any 4 days out of my stay??
I am levying tomorrow..
Hello Akjay. If you already have a pass, it shows the dates on which it's valid. If you have a regular Swiss Pass
, it's valid on 4 consecutive days. If you purchased a Swiss Flexi Pass
, the free travel days don't have to be consecutive.
So you do have a Eurail Pass for Germany and France only? In that case it's not valid in Switzerland and you will have to buy a regular ticket covering the leg Zurich-Basel.
Validating your pass has to be done according to the instructions you received along with your pass. A date may already be printed on it and you may only have to fill out your name and passport numbers. Other resellers require you to have the pass stamped by a railway official. You can do so at the railway station of Basel.
Connections and all their details, such as changes of trains (just click the 'plus' symbol) can be found through the timetable I mentioned. Have a nice stay!
