I am trying to decide whether to purchase a Swiss half pass or Swiss travel pass. As advised, I am trying to calculate train fares for the various trips I plan to take while in Switzerland. After selecting my preferred train on the site, I am unable to click on the red purchase ticket button to access pricing. Instead, I am receiving a message "A suitable offer could not be found". Please help. Thank you.

Hi PandP and welcome to MySwissAlps!

It should be possible by using our web page here on choosing the best rail pass.

Are you using the SBB timetable to find fares? Which route are you looking for?

I faced the same situation as PandP too -- same error message "Please check your details – a suitable offer could not be found." Yes, I believe PandP was at the SBB timetable too.

In my case, I was searching for:

Luzern to Zürich Flughafen

Travel route Mon, 16.10.2017. Departure 14:41 (random timing)

There were a few options listed, but I was not able to select any of them to view the price.

Thanks in advance!

Oh, it is because travel is more than one month away on the SBB timetable. You can't buy tickets. You can check the same route on an earlier date to get a rough idea on the cost for the trip.

If you want to buy them now, you can also go here to buy tickets through one of the main ticket sellers for Europe.

Thank you, Lucas. I, too, was entering dates that were over a month away. I entered tomorrow's dates and have found the corresponding prices. I appreciate your help.
