Dear,

 

I want to visit Zermatt from Basel. Can i do this using only the Saver Day pass? Which train should i get and which route should i take?

Also if i want to take the glacier express i should make a reservation only and then present the Saver Day pass?

Thank you in advance,

Charis

Hi xaris619 

It is possible to use a Saver Day Pass for your journey from Basel to Zermatt. It doesn't matter which timetable your going to chose: www.sbb.ch/en.

The Saver Day Pass is also valid for a trip on the Glacier Express. Please note that seat reservations for the Glacier Express are mandatory and are not included in the train ticket: https://shop.glacierexpress.ch/gex_en/

Enjoy your stay in Switzerland.

Kind regards

Hi xaris619 

You're right, the Saver Day Pass can be purchased from 30 days in advance up to the day before travel. Since the offer is limited, we recommend to buy it at the earliest possible date.

You can either print out your ticket show it to the ticket inspector or display the confirmation e-mail directly on your smartphone, tablet or laptop.

You can choose "own ticket" as reduction for the Glacier Express.

Kind regards
