Interrail One Country Pass

Hi all,

I haven't posted for a long time as I've been back in the UK for a while but am visiting Switzerland again from 5th to 9th January. I could be doing a reasonable amount of rail travel and as the Swiss Pass and Flexi Pass are so expensive I thought about a one country Interrail Pass.

From what I can gather it works similarly to the GA (which I had when I lived there) but I'm wondering if anyone has experience of how it works with SBB Railaway offers. Would you get the same discount as the GA?

Thanks so much for your help!

Jayne

(sorry if this has been covered - I tried a search and couldn't find anything)

Re: Interrail One Country Pass

For travellers who are 26 years or older on their first day of travel.

Available in first or second class. A first class Pass is also valid in second class.

Only European residents can use an InterRail Pass.

A cheaper alternative, but difficult, is to get a TCV / SCIC-NRT ticket ( good for 2 months ).

http://europetrainsguide.com/forum/i...hp?topic=114.0

These are called routing tickets ie take 2 months to go from the border eg St. Margarathen / Basel / Chiasso to your last destination in CH.

I buy them cheaper in CZ or Slovakia.

Re: Interrail One Country Pass

Many thanks for the info jrspet. I'll be doing various journeys to different destinations over the 5 days (I'd get a 4-day Interrail ticket), and wanted to do one or two of the Snow'n'Rail offers so my main problem is whether it gives a discount on the SBB Railaway offers.
