Also available: Door-to-Door Express Luggage services! Your luggage is picked up at your hotel and dropped off at your destination, leaving you free to travel without your bags. 


The Swiss Travel System Advantage


There are many rail passes that include travel in Switzerland such as the Eurail Global Pass and the Eurail France – Switzerland Pass to name just a few. But did you know that the Swiss Travel Passes covering transportation on the entire Swiss Travel System cover more of Switzerland than a Eurail Pass that includes Switzerland? Below is a handy chart highlighting the most popular Swiss excursion benefits/discounts with a Swiss Travel Pass versus a EurailPass.
