I have a 14 night trip with the following itinerary:

Fly New York to Zurich. Two nights in Lucern. Five nights in Wengen. Two nights in Bern. Three nights in Dijon, France. Two nights in Zurch. Fly back to New York.

Can I use the Swiss Travel Pass in any way to go from Bern to Dijon, and from Dijon to Zurich?

Should I go with the 8 day or 15 day Swiss Travel Pass?

Hello jamesx and Welcome to MySwissAlps,

The Swiss Travel Pass only operates up to the Swiss border.

See aintickets/france for Dijon.

A clearly mapped out itinerary is the basis for deciding which pass (if any) suits. Based on your itinerary you need to do the sums based on the cost of all your planned trips on trains, boats, cable cars etc. You can use the Swiss Train Timetable ( metable) to work out the fares for any trip. When you go to buy a ticket the fare you see on the right hand side of the page will normally be the half-fare price. Double it to get full fare. With A Swiss Travel Pass it is free provided it is shown as free on the Area of Validity map ( PDF downloadable from isstravelpass/validity).

You should read “How to choose the best travel pass” ( ain/ticketspasses/prac tical/chooserailpass), download the handy spreadsheet calculator and do the math.
