Hi everyone,

Rail Europe offers 5 days of traveling on a 4-day Swiss Travel Pass, and 10 days of traveling on an 8-day Swiss Travel Pass. Please see:

Please note:

  • The promotion is only available for the passes mentioned above, and only on the websites mentioned above;
  • This promotion is available for residents from the mentioned countries only;
  • You need to buy your pass before June 13, 2018 - 5:00 PM ET (Canada, Mexico, USA), or June 28 (other countries);
  • The first travel day of the pass must be no later than June 30, 2018 (Canada, Mexico, USA) or July 31 (other countries);
  • This promotion can be changed, cancelled or extended at any time.

If you can't take advantage of this promotion, then I'd recommend to keep an eye on the forum and the below page, where new promotions will be announced.

Hi Raju,

Welcome to MySwissAlps! Thank you for letting us know, it looks like they indeed extended this promotion to other countries too now, particularly GCC countries: https://www.raileurope -gcc.com/pass/swiss-travel-pass-82. Good thing for you is that they offer the extra days for 2nd class as well.

I'll update the above post. Thanks again!

Indeed, just GCC. I'm not sure why they have the same promotion with different fine print for different countries, but that's how it is at the moment.

Hi myswissalps,

i am coming from kuwait (Indian nationality) to swiss from 4th june to 9th june 2018.

I am thinking to buy swiss pass for 4days through raileurope website so i can get 5day.

Is it valid on my trip day 4-8june? Online purchase receipt can be use to travel in swiss without any hardle?

Thank you.

Thanks for reply.

Was confused beacuse it was mentioned in term and condition that residence of gcc can avail this offer.

As i am indian passport holder having kuwait valid residency and travelling to swiss to and fro from kuwait.

Thanks will purchase now.

I would say raileurope website is pathetic. I am trying to book pass for 5 days since 5 days but always an error at some point.

First it is insisting to have delivery option but in option nothing coming like print at home etc. Only saying take free delivery at Dubai office choice that option but again at payment page showing error that your session expired and booking not saved.

I would say not good service from Raileurope website.

I would book from other website rather than raileurope now.

Thank you.

Hi Arvind,

That's unfortunate, thanks for letting us know! Perhaps it does have something to do with your passport residency. I will pass this on to Rail Europe. You'll find other purchase options here: www.myswissalps.com/sw isstravelpass/price.

Hi guys, so... how can I get those 2 free days booking 8 days? Where do they appear? Do I need to conclude the purchase process? As nowhere in the process these free days are mentioned.
