I am trying to buy our Bernese Oberland Regional Passes now for June 22 start date. The SBB site is only allowing purchase for a start date on or before June 02. Is this a glitch or do I have to wait until later this month to purchase them?

Thanks for your help.

Hi Stacy,

It might be a glitch. I just tried to find out a train ticket price for something else in June and it wouldn't give me the price.

If you're eager to purchase the Regional-Pass Bernese Oberland tonight, you can also try it with the other retailer (HappyRail) that we've listed on our website: www.myswissalps.com/re gionalpassberneseoberl and/price

Chantal, I tried Happy Rail but they did not offer a 25% discount for also having a Swiss Travel Pass. Guess I'll try SBB later.

You are right. Doesn't give me the option either. I've contacted them. I'll let you know what the answer is.

Hi Stacy,

Happyrail does not offer the discounted version of that pass yet. I assume you tried the SBB domestic site, but you'd better order from their tourist webshop at https://www.swissrailw ays.com/en/products/re gionalberneseoberlandp ass. They offer the discounted pass, and also issues with non-accepted credit cards are less likely there.

Chantal and Arno, thank you both. I followed Arno's advice and successfully ordered the passes through the Swiss Travel Center.

Just a quick update for future readers: Happyrail now does offer the discounted passes, and sends them via e-mail within one business day: https://www.happyrail. com/en/pass/europe/swi tzerland/regional-pass-berner-oberland.
