Can we use the free stuff on any day or just on the days we use the travel pass for the train?

Does the regular travel pass have anything more than 4 days.? 8 days is too much? we will be there for 6 days but only need like 4 days -since we are staying 2 days in each place. Thats why i want ot know if i can still use the free boats, buses etc. when im not using the train.

Hi Lisadee,

You can use boats, buses etc. for free when you're not using the train, however, it will be counted as one travel day. So if it's only a short trip by bus, it might not be worth using the pass.

Do you mean if the Swiss Travel Pass has anything more than 4 days but less than 8? The answer is no. Would poin-to-point tickets be an option for your first and last day? Combined with a 3 day Swiss Travel Pass? Have you read our webpage on how to select the best rail pass: ain/ticketspasses/prac tical/chooserailpass.

It could very easily turn out that an 8-day Swiss Travel Pass would be the cheapest option, even if you are only using it for 6 days.

Effective daily cost of passes (adult, 2nd class)

  • Swiss Travel Pass 4 days - CHF 67.50 per day
  • Swiss Travel Pass 8 days (but only used for 6 days) - CHF 66.33 per day
  • Swiss Travel Pass Flex 4 days - CHF 77.50 per day

So it is definitely worth going through the process recommended by Chantal to find out what is most economical for you.
