Sorry to bother you again, pls advise us for the questions as following.

1)Can we use the Saver Flexi Pass to ride on the train from Zurich to Zermatt?
2)Are we necessary to book the ticket in advance if we go there in May,2012?

Look forward to your reply.

Hi Forum: My wife and I will be staying in Lauterbrunnen for six days in mid-September of this year. I'm trying to work out what choice of pass will be best for us. Some details of our trip:
- Upon arrival, we will be taking the train from Geneva to Lauterbrunnen.
- We plan on taking:
~ the train(s) from Lauterbrunnen to the Jungfraujoch (round trip).
~ the cable car to the Schilthorn
~ probably several other cable cars
~ boat trip from Interlaken to Brienz
We will depart Lauterbrunnen for Milan.

Given our plans, a) is the Swiss FlexiPass the best choice and b) is the train from Lauterbrunnen to Milan covered by the Swiss FlexiPass?
I appreciate your thoughts and help with all of this. Gary

Hello Sin,

1) Yes, Zurich to Zermatt is covered completely. Please check the map linked from the Swiss Flexi Pass page to see all details about where it's valid.
2) You wrote in you other post that you've purchased the pass. There are no more tickets required.

Hi Gary,

The 2-for-1 4-day Swiss Saver Flexi Pass would be a good choice. Even though you're only making two longer trips, all in all it would still be cheap to make use that offer. Please check the map linked from the Swiss Flexi Pass page to see all details about where it's valid. The Italian part of your trip will not be covered by the pass, the Swiss part is free.

Dear Sirs,

Since we got the Swiss Flexi Pass, are we need to book the seat in advance when we want to ride on the train from Zurich to Zermatt.

Look forward to your reply soon.

Thanks.

Dear Moderator,

It seems that the 2 for 1 offer is only for 4 day pass.

Is there any similar offer for 8 day Swiss Pass?

Thanks and Regards

Hi there,

My wife and I would be heading to Interlaken from Zurich Int' Airport in late April 2012.We're planning to take advantage of the 2 for 1 saver pass, but there are a few queries that I'd like to ask for further clarification:
1. I believe the train service agents are located at the basement of the airport. Can I take advantage of this offer when I've reached there or does the offer only exists for online bookings?
2. If so, which train service agents would offer me this 2 for 1 offer? I've checked 'RailEurope' but I guess they do not have this offer.
3. My wife would be entitled to go for the Youth Pass as she's below 26. Can I purchase an adult ticket for her to take advantage of the Saver(Flexi) Pass offer?
Thank You,
Khuskhus

Hello Khuskhus!

1. I'm not sure whether the offer can be obtained at railway stations too. Please ask the Swiss railways to be sure.
2. The offer is offered by STC only. Just click the links in Arno's initial post. The offer is included on the Swiss Pass page as well; select the appropriate pass on the right side.
3. Yes, you can buy the 2 for 1 offer for your wife below 26 too.

Hi Annika,
Thank you so much for your prompt reply. Though I have a few more questions before I make the purchase online:
1. How do I use the Pass? Do I just report to any train service that travels from Zurich to Interlaken at the airport basement, when I get there?
2. I believe I do not have to do any reservations for my train ride from Zurich to Interlaken?
3. Will there be any additional charges for the both of us, when we report there?
Thank you again.

Hi Khuskhus,

Once you receive the pass, fill out the travelers names and passport numbers to make it valid for traveling. Then just board the trains. There are no other charges, and reservations are not required for most of the trains, incluing Zurich - Interlaken.

Thanks Annika for the prompt help,

As you mentioned that, this offer is valid between April 1 and May 31, 2012 and between September 1 and November 30, 2012.

My journey dates in Switzerland are 29 May 2012 to 05 June 2012 which now can not be changed.

So can I use this offer and buy 2 such passes of 2 for 1 and use it for 8 days ( one pass for 29 May 2012 to 01 June 2012 and another for 02 June 2012 to 05 June 2012)?

Will both be valid and even first pass also can be valid on 01st June 2012?

Dear Moderator,

I wanted to buy the 2 for1 pass for my travel to Switzerland in April 2012 and I am situated in India.

When i try to book the pass through the mentioned web address I am charged additional 30 CHF for delivery in India. Is there a way or any other site from India itself by which I can avoid the delivery charges ?

Also, how long does it take to deliver the pass ?

Regards,
Prachi

Hi Atul,

The pass should have a start date within the time frame mentioned in my initial post. If it starts on May 31 it will be valid through June so you can use all the travel days included in the pass. The pass cannot start in June.

Edit on March 1, 2012:
Previous promotions similar to this one used to require a start date within the given period, but remaining travel days could be used in the following month. We've found that this is not the case this time (at least for passes issued by RailEurope, but I expect other resellers to stick to the same rules). The passes can be used for traveling up to and including May 31 or November 30. Further details are in
my initial post.

Should anyone have ordered the passes while assuming traveling in June or December as well, please contact the reseller you purchased from to be sure about how your specific pass works. The resellers are listed in my initial post.

Hello Prachi,

I am not aware of any other options. It's still a lot cheaper than regular passes, even with the shipping fee included. Detailed delivery information is available on the Swiss Pass page if you fill out your country and pass. Delivery to India takes about 5 business days.

Enjoy your traveling in Switzerland!
