Swiss Travel Pass vs Swiss Travel Pass Flex

New Author

Is the Swiss Travel Pass valid for the Gotthard Panorama Express?  I am looking at the page for this train and it says "This route is fully covered by the Swiss Travel Pass (Flex) ".  I thought the Swiss Travel Pass covered panoramic trains, but is this not the case?  Do I need to buy the Flex Pass?

In looking at the inclusions, I cannot see much difference - can anybody help?  Thanks 🙂


Hello @ImogenJohnson

No, you don't have to buy the Flex Pass. The description means that both passes are valid. Also, you have to pay only the reservation fee.

I wish you a nice journey in Switzerland.

Kind regards,


Thank you very much 🙂
