Hi, I'm stumped here when I checking tickets from Switzerland to Paris and back. I plan to get the Swiss 2 for 1 ticket and will also be doing a short trip to Paris.
When I choose the option "I have a rail pass" and select Swiss Fall 2 for 1, there is no ticket available for Lausanne to Paris. However, when I try Swiss Pass, there is ticket available and it is discounted (confirmed it when I tried using point-to-point booking). The condition for the discounted fare is "...holders of a Rail Pass covering Switzerland". So why is Swiss Fall 2 for 1 not considered as a rail pass covering Switzerland?
I tried from Paris back to Switzerland (Basel). This time, I have 2 discounted fares - one for holder of a Swiss Pass, another one for holder of Paris Pass. I will be buying a Paris Combo, so not sure is this considered a Paris Pass. Regardless, again there is no discount for Swiss Fall 2 for 1 pass holder.
Appreciate your advice.
