Hello lkln123! The Swiss (Saver) Pass allows free urban travel in Zurich and unlimited train travelling throughout Switzerland. So the trips to Geneva, Bern and the entire Glacier Express route are covered as well. Please refer to the map under the link 'Overview of the network on which the Swiss Pass is valid' at the Swiss Pass page to see where the Swiss (Saver) Pass is valid. All you have to pay for additionally is seat reservation
for the Glacier Express.
If you want to be able to make use of trains, buses and boats for free during all three days of you stay, my advice would be to purchase a 3 day Swiss Saver Flexi Pass
(this is cheaper than a regular Swiss Saver Pass, as the shortest and therefore cheapest variant of the regular Swiss Saver Pass is the 4 day variant). The Swiss Saver Flexi Pass covers the same area as the regular Swiss Saver Pass. Please refer to the map on the Swiss Flexi Pass page
The Swiss Card
is something different. It allows a free round trip from the border or airport to any destination in Switzerland and back again, and a 50% discount on days between the inbound and outbound journey. The Swiss Card would be economical if you plan to make long and expensive trips on the first and last (third) day of your stay, and a rather short trip on the second day.
I hope this clears things up. You may want to take a look at our pass overview
and review the detail page of each pass for features, network maps, prices and ordering options.
