Validity of swiss pass

New Author

Is swiss pass valid on train from Venice to Zurich?

New Author

Ms Samantha, Swiss pass is valid only upto border...accepted...but only by trains other than TGV or Lyria. Got an email in this effect from Mr Cedric Favre of Pl correct this fallacy in swiss pass info/brochure.

I need to catch TGV from border cities like Basel or Geneva and not Zurich!!

Hi @RajKarwa 

For international trains with compulsory seat reservation, different conditions may apply indeed.

As you have already written: If you take the TGV Lyria train to Paris, you can purchase your ticket from the border stations Vallorbe, Geneva, or Basel.

Kind regards
