- "It runs like clockwork" Robert b. 08/09/2016
Its been said before that the trains always run on time, they do and so do most of the buses all of the time. Rail Europe has all the information on the rail systems and with it you can bank on the right ticket at the right price. Single tickets v Rail Passes may suit some but for most of us the ease of changing one's mind and doing something different on the day make rail passes the better choice. Planning a trip is so easy given the wealth of available information. Value for money Convenience

- "Wonderful " Sok Mun, Maggie c. 21/04/2016
Swiss Travel Pass was very easy to use. During my 14 days in Swiss, I travelled using the Swiss Pass and the timing of the trains were on time. Train comfort was good and it was easy to move around even for a tourist like me. In terms of improvement, can be better in terms of cleanliness on train and the WC. Overall, I would rate it as very good! Value for money Convenience
- "8 day Swiss Pass is great" Alicyn r. 07/04/2016
Our trip took us from Zurich (on business) to the Alps (Interlaken and Wengen), to Bern, to Basel. The train schedule between these locations was prompt, and generally left every half- or every hour. Having the flexibility to switch trains, change plans, move between cities or on the local trains, trams and bus, and having the benefit of reduced rates in the mountains...this was great. I cannot imagine the stress of such a trip if we were trying to keep a strict schedule...we had an 8 month old baby with us! The only challenge was getting the stroller onto some trains, but the other passengers were generally very helpful, helping us to lift the stroller onto the trains if we needed it. Super impressed and we will do this again. Value for money Convenience
- "a exellent way to get around!" Heila v. 03/04/2016

- "Swiss Rail System" Prashant d. 25/01/2016
The Swiss First Class pass suggested by my wife turned out to be an outstanding experience. Very few persons use First class so reservations were never needed. The Glacier express was excellent though we found Bernina express route much more picturesque. Travel 26-28 Sep 2015. Value for money Convenience
