Hi all,

me and my girlfriend are heading to Switzerland on the 20th of December until the 24th of December, staying in Zurich on the first night then travelling down to st. Moritz for 2 nights and then on to montreux for our last night before heading home from Geneva.

I have been looking at the Interrail pass for 4 days in a specific country as this works out cheapest for us as we are under 25. Can someone just clarify for me please, whether I just simply purchase the pass and then We can get on and off any train through those 4 days without having to worry about any additional tickets or bookings.

when I looked on the SBB website it doesn’t seem to have Switzerland on the list of countries to use Interrail and I’m a bit concerned that I may buy the pass and can’t actually use it!

thanks in advance and we can’t wait to visit

Like the Eurail pass, the InterRail pass is mainly intended for people travelling on the main line inter-city and inter-regional networks of European countries, as such for Switzerland it is valid for 'free' travel on the 'core' railway network of the main railway companies, ie SBB CFF FFS, BLS, SOB, RhB, MGB, MOB, ZB.

Switzerland is less complicated than Inter Rail in, say, France because you can avoid reservation obligatory trains even on the fastest routes (unlike the French TGV network)
