What is the Eurail and how does it work?

With a Eurail Pass in your pocket, you have the freedom to jump on all the trains on this map and enjoy unlimited travel in Switzerland. Depending on your travel plans, it can work out quite a bit cheaper than the Swiss Travel Pass. It doesn't include quite as many perks and discounts, but it's a very decent rail pass that gives you great flexibility when travelling on the extensive Swiss public transport system. 

You have full flexibility when it comes to using your purchased travel days, as your pass is valid for a whole month. So if you plan on doing some long distance travelling one day and then spend a few days in an area, it might make sense to get a Eurail.

And by "long distance travelling" I mean as long distance as one can travel in a country that's half the size of Lake Superior...😏

Normally, with a Eurail Pass, you will need to make seat reservations on certain trains in other European countries. But in Switzerland, unless you plan on catching one of the scenic train rides that require a seat reservation, you can just flexibly hop on and off any train you like without bothering about reserving your spot ahead of time.

Tips for using the Eurail

  • You can only buy a Eurail if you're a European resident. If you're not European, please read more about the Interrail Pass here.
  • There's no One Country Pass for Switzerland with the Eurail. Instead, you can get a Global Pass that gives you access thousands upon thousands kilometres of railway tracks in 33 countries across Europe. Including Switzerland...😊
  • You can buy your Eurail Pass ahead of time or spontaneously. It never sells out and only takes a few minutes to buy.
  • Download the SBB app on your phone to plan your trip.
  • Make sure you activate your Eurail for the days you want to use it by following these intstructions.
  • Always have your Eurail handy for inspection in combination with a document of identification.
