Hello train travelers,
Swiss rail pass prices will increase as of January 1, 2014. The discount on Swiss Saver Passes and Swiss Saver Flexi Passes will be decreased from 15% to 10%. The Swiss Transfer Ticket and Swiss Card will be a little more expensive. The prices of the Swiss Half Fare Card, the Swiss Pass for single travelers and the Swiss Flexi Pass for single travelers will not change.
You may be able to save money by buying on time, as some resellers will charge the current price, even when buying for 2014. If your plans for 2014 are fixed, you may want to consider to buy on December 31 at the latest. I would even advice to buy before December 25 as I expect maintenance will be performed on some reseller websites around the turn of the year, so they may not be available.
Swiss Saver Pass 8 days for two people: CHF 668 (2013), CHF 708 (2014)
Swiss Card: CHF 195 per person (2013), CHF 199 per person (2014)
Swiss Transfer Ticket: CHF 135 per person (2013), CHF 139 per person (2014)
