I want to travel from Montreux to Milan and I have a Swiss Travel Pass. Do I purchase a ticket from Montreux to Milan and do I have to pay for the complete trip or just part of it. How do I purchase if necessary and how do I get credit for my Swiss Travel Pass.

Hello Patsy and welcome to MySwissAlps,

Your Swiss Travel Pass will cover you from Montreux to Domodossola.

You should be able to book the full trip via the SBB Ticket shop. Check the timetable here www.myswissalps.com/ti metable

If booking on-line you will need to specify the GA1/2/3 reduction for the Swiss leg of the journey in order to receive the credit for your Swiss Travel Pass. I believe reservations are required on the Italian leg of the journey Domodossola to Milan. Read about Italian trains here www.myswissalps.com/tr aintickets/italy

Happy travels!

Hi Patsy,

This link will give you International Journey times and bookings www.sbb.ch/ticketshop/ b2c/adw.do?sprache=en&artikelnumm er=7731 There is a direct train from Montreaux to Milan.

When I said GA1/2/3 what I meant was select GA 1st Class or GA 2nd Class depending on your preference. There is a direct train from Montreux to Milan.

Hi Rockoyster: Thanks for your help. On the drop down menu for Switzerland discounts it reads for 2nd class:

GA 2.cl, 1 year/GA subscription. Is this valid for a 15 day Swiss Travel Pass. It is the 1year subscription part that is confusing me.

Thanks, Patsy1

Hi Patsy,

Yes "GA 2.cl, 1 year/GA subscription" is the one you want. I confirmed this is valid for Swiss Travel Pass with SBB via email some time ago. It's basically 100% discount which gives you the right fare same as STP. SBB Ticket shop is oriented to Swiss residents hence does not show STP discount option.
