Hello train travelers,
As of January 1, 2013, the prices of the Swiss Travel System passes
will increase by 2.5% on average. This concerns the "official" (local) prices, but most resellers will probably adjust their prices accordingly on or shortly after January 1. Exact prices for each reseller are hard to predict, as prices depend on your country of residence and exchange rates, shipping rates, promotions, etc. If you have planned a trip to Switzerland for early 2013, you may want to order your rail pass on December 31 at the latest (or even before December 28: please read this
). Most resellers allow to purchase passes for traveling 6 months ahead or even more.
To see current prices, just go to the appropiate rail pass page, which are listed below. Then select your country of residence, travelers and rail pass type to see all purchase options and prices of the various resellers.
A few examples of current and new prices (2nd class seats, shipping & handling not included):
- Swiss Saver Pass 8 days, 2 people: CHF 652.80 now, CHF 668 in 2013.
- Swiss Saver Flexi Pass 3 days, 2 people: CHF 431.80 now, CHF 442 in 2013.
- Swiss Card, 1 person: CHF 186 now, CHF 195 in 2013.
- Swiss Transfer Ticket, 1 person: CHF 130 now, CHF 135 in 2013.
- Swiss Half Fare Card, 1 person: CHF 110 now, CHF 120 in 2013.
Discounts on hotel bookings, city tours and other day trips will increase from at least 10% to at least 15% (maximum: 50%).
Of course, there will be special offers in 2013 also. The Swiss Pass 4+1
