Hello AAAGs,

You're traveling on 4 non consecutive days, so that makes the 4-day Swiss Saver Flexi Pass a perfect fit. The train to the Rigi is included for free, as well as the trip to Melide (Swiss Miniature). The entrance for Swiss Miniature is not included.

All details and purchase options for the pass can be found here.

Hi,

First of all I must say this forum is really helpful and benifit lot of people like us.

I am traveling to switzerland with my wife from 17th Sep 2012 to 21st Sep 2012. Below would be my itinerary.

17th London to Swiss
18th Mt titls
19th JungFrau
20th Milan/venice
21st back to swiss
22nd Back to London

Please help me in planning my trip by answering the below queries.

If I want to visit Mt Titlis and JungFrau, at which city I should stay so that it would be cheaper and take less time to travel?
Is it feasable or possible to travel from swiss to Italy on 20th Sep morning, spend some time in Italy (venice) like citytour stay one night at Italy and on 22nd Morning bac to London. So that we can reach london by 22nd eve (before 5 pm)?
Is it worth buying 2 for 1 swiss pass?
Do I need to reserver the rail seats in advance?
Can I visit Mt titlis and JungFrau using this 2 for 1 swiss pass?
Can I travel to Venice using 2 for 1 swiss pass? If no is there any other pass for Italy as well? Is it worth buying? Does 2 for 1 pass help me in saving som cost of travel from swiss to Italy?

Thanks,
Ramit

Hello Ramit. I think Arno already answered your questions on the validity of the Swiss (Flexi) Pass (just check the validity map he mentioned), traveling into Italy and seat reservation in this topic, right?

As for your other questions: the 2 for 1 deal is definitely a good option for you. I'd spend my nights in Lucerne and/or Interlaken if I were you, as these towns provide good access to the Rigi and the Jungfraujoch. You can plan your trips with the aid of the timetable, including your trip to Venice. Of course this is possible, but mind that you'll have to make two pretty long train transfers to achieve this. If you're up for this, you can best buy regular return tickets from the Swiss border to Venice.

Hello, I will purchase this pass and read somewhere that one can get a discount on TGV Lyria tickets but I can
not find any information on how to do this. Does anyone know?

Hi cacheson. As far as I know, such discounts come from the fact that any Swiss leg of a trip to France will be for free or discounted with a Swiss (Flexi) Pass. It's discussed in this previous topic and this one. However, there are economical deals for a trip from Switzerland to France, independent of your rail pass. Please check this topic on cheap France-Switzerland tickets for specifics. The (spring) offer mentioned there still seems to be valid.

Hi,

I've just order the Swiss Pass 2 for 1 through the website www.swisstravelsystem.co.uk, the billing address is in UK, my place; but the delivery address is my friend's address in Germany. However, I dont know what is the procedure to get it? I did not see any blank to fill the payment details as: bank account,v.v.... So can you please let me know when can I get the Swiss Pass and how can I pay? My departure date will be on 9 September 2012.

Thanks a lot,

Duong

Also, as I do not know that I can buy Swiss Pass on the day of arrival in Switz, so I book it online. However, as my planning is changeable, so I prefer to buy directly. Do you know how can I cancel the order right now? Is it any cancellation fee applied?

Thanks very much,

Duong

2) Do I require to book the seat by holding swiss passes say for example from interlaken to basel or tirano to st.moritz?

Thanks & Regards,

Hi Duong,

We don't work with the website you mentioned, but we do work with swissrailways.com, which looks similar. Since you prefer delivery to Germany, you better not order from their UK website. Instead, order from their website for the rest of Europe. That's slightly cheaper as well. Just go ahead and fill out everything they ask for. Payment options (American Express, Diners, Mastercard, VISA) will be presented at the final step.

All purchase options (including buying locally if available) are presented on the Swiss Pass page. Cancellation fees are usually 15% of the purchase amount, but you best check that at the website you decide to place your order.

Hello Chia,

1) A link can be found on the seat reservation page.
2) It's explained on that same page. You don't need reservations for trains other than some panoramic trains and trains bound for surrounding countries.

I hope this helps you out!

Hello kausikdhume. You can buy 2 sets of the offer for 8 consecutive days. As far as we know, the 2 for 1 deal has to be purchased online. All details on the offer, including the purchase options, are explained in the original post of this topic. Information on the Swiss Pass itself is available at the Swiss Pass page.

Hi, just a very urgent question. Since I am so confused about the option to buy Swiss Pass. I read so many information and now I just realized that I get lost. I've already ordered the ticket on the www.swisstravelsystem.co.uk as I posted above, however I did not fill out any information about my payment detail to choose (although I filled in every details therein but no blank about the payment), so I am worry whether I can receive the Swiss pass or not. is there any way to check? As I did not receive any confirmation from that website....
Also, I will travel from Milano to Tirano on 9 September, and I thought that in any case, because I did not pay the ticket yet, I can buy them on the day I arrive Tirano railway station. But now, I've just read on your topic that I can not buy directly from there... Is it true? Is there any way I can buy for sure in Switzerland? I need your respond as soon as possible. Thank you very much.

Hi du.duong. You should contact the reseller, Swisstravelsystem, to ask about your order. They should be able to tell you whether is has been placed correctly. I'm not quite sure what you mean with your second question. Do you need a train ticket Milano-Tirano? That can just be bought in Milano before boarding. If you mean buying a Swiss Pass: no, that won't be possible in Milano. A regular Swiss Pass can be bought in Tirano, but the 2 for 1 offer (I assume that's what you bought, since you post in this topic) can only be ordered online as far as I know.

Dear mod,

Many thanks you for your answer. I've just contacted with Switzerland Travel Centre, and that my previous order had not been made. Thus, I have to place new order. I've just done it and got the confirmation from the website suggested by your forum. Hopefully, there will have no more problem to me :-)

Thank you again.

Hi,

Can I please ask a very quick question? When I proceed to place the order, the website said that my order will pay in Swiss currency, the shown price in euro just for information. So, is it convenience for me to use Euro currency in Switz? or I have to exchange into CHF ?

Many thanks

Duong Du

Thank you
