I was looking at the RailAway offers on the sbb website. An example would be this.

In the prices tab on this link, I see that the price samples are for tickets valid for 3 days.

If anyone has ever bought one of these tickets, can they confirm whether this is the case.

Just trying to figure out the best way to get away from the rain

Re: RailAway

Yes the tickets are valid for 3 days, but obviously you can only travel each section of your trip once (+ return).

But for example if you buy a railaway from Zürich to the olympic museum in Lausanne you can do the following:

Friday: Zurich - Bern, stay overnight
Saturday: Bern - Lausanne
Sunday: Lausanne - Zurich


Friday: Zurich - Lausanne, stay 2 nights
Sunday: Lausanne - Zurich

Hope this helps. I often travelled like this, especially in winter with the snow & rail deals. Staying over with friends en-route on day 1, continue travel to the skiresort the next day, and go home on day 3.
