Rail Passes

Every Swiss town is connected to the Swiss Travel System, which means every Swiss town can be reached with a rail pass. And the Swiss Travel Pass is an even better deal because in addition to rail, it includes lake steamers, postal buses & city transportation lines – all synchronized for easy connections.

Make sure you give your clients all the advantages of this easy travel, as well as the additional bonuses that comes with a rail pass.

The Value of a Rail Pass

Rail passes make the most sense for clients taking multiple rail journeys, and who want the flexibility and freedom to choose their travel days and change plans. For example, a Swiss Rail Pass would allow your clients to travel from Zurich to Lucerne to Interlaken to Geneva and stop in Lausanne, known for its cathedral and Olympic Museum, and Montreux, home of the famous summer jazz festival. All these trips are easy to make and are covered with the purchase of a single Swiss Travel Pass.
