I will be purchasing the SwissTransfer Ticket Half Fare Card for our 5 day SwissTrip the end of May. On our last day we will be using transfer ticket to travel from Lauterbrunnen to Vernassa Italy. Where and how do I purchase my ticket for the Italy leg of the trip. The Euro Rail train schedule shows a train leaving Lauterbrunnen around 6:30 am and arriving Milan around 10:30 am with no stops from Spiez Switzerland to Milan. Using this train how would I purchase the ticket for Italy leg of trip. THANK YOU

Hi Tom,

You don't need a ticket for the Lauterbrunnen to Spiez leg. From Spiez onwards, you need to book tickets to Vernazza (is that where you intend to travel to?). The Swiss part of that is free because of your Swiss Transfer Ticket. I know of two options to get this ticket:

  1. The SBB timetable offers one ticket for the whole journey from Spiez to Vernazza. But you can't select the Swiss Transfer Ticket to get a discount for the Swiss part. So you either choose GA here, which should provide the same discount, or you just book a ticket from Domodossola (the border) onwards. In the latter case you don't have a seat reservation until Domodossola.
  2. Rail Europe US offers the ticket as well, but you need to book 3 separate legs: Spiez - Milan with 'Swiss Pass discount', Milan - Monterosso (no pass discounts), Monterosso - Vernazza (no pass discounts).
