Sooboo said: I just followed the link to RailEurope site and after plugging in my information - 2 Adults, 1 Youth (age 20) for 8 days unlimited rail pass came to $1008. Because we are a party of 3, this makes best sense? thank you again!
Thanks for complimenting on our website! It's great that you have the opportunity to visit Switzerland again after so many years. Your itinerary is certainly doable; I can understand that you want to make the most of it. I would definitely recommend some hiking if you have the chance. There are plenty of suggestions on our website.
You can book
the Glacier Express whenever you like. You don't need to posses the pass in order to do so, but the most convenient way is to just order the reservations along with your passes. The price difference between 2nd and 1st class can be paid for at the Zermatt rail station.
The passes you selected add up to $1006 when purchased through raileurope.com
. You'd better make use of the 2-for-1 promotion
and order two 4-day Swiss Saver Passes (each for two adults) and an 8-day Swiss Youth Pass. The total amount will only be $792 in that case. To save even more, you can order the exact same passes through raileurope-world.com
. Start with adding two of the promoted 4-day passes to your shopping cart here
. Then add the Youth Pass here
. And finally use the promo code
to get an additional discount (only until September 5). This adds up to EUR 591 (about $740) excl. shipping and the seat reservations.

Enjoy your stay!
