What is the Interrail and how does it work?

With an Interrail 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 an Interrail.

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 an Interrail 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 Interrail

  • You can only buy an Interrail if you're a European resident. If you're not European, please read more about the Eurail Pass here.
  • If you only travel to Switzerland, the One Country Pass is your perfect match. However, you can also buy the Global Pass, which unlocks thousands upon thousands of kilometres of railways across all of Europe.
  • You can buy your Interrail 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 Interrail for the days you want to use it by following these intstructions.
  • Always have your Interrail handy for inspection in combination with a document of identification.
