How do I book trains from France, Italy, Germany or Austria to Switzerland?
I purchased a rail pass: where can I ask questions about my order?
- Please note that we do not sell passes (or anything else). You will need to check with the company you purchased from. It is very likely one of the companies in our lists of trusted retailers, like here for the Swiss Travel Pass: www.myswissalps.com/sw isstravelpass/price. Before you contact them, please check your e-mail spam folder: digital passes or other information concerning your purchase may have ended up there.
What time does my train leave and how long does the trip take?
- Please enter your point of departure and arrival in the timetable.
I only have a few minutes to connect between trains, will that work?
- No problem, changing trains in minutes is part of the efficient transport system. Our timetable page explains this in more detail.
Will my train or cable car operate on the day I plan to be there?
Should I travel by train or rent a car?
- Trains and other public transport are the best way to explore Switzerland. It is safe, convenient and eco-friendly. Only in rare cases we recommend to travel by car. Please find details here: www.myswissalps.com/ca rversustrain.
