Being a spontaneous traveler, I benefited from this 4 Day Swiss Travel Pass. I definitely got my monies worth. Regular price for my main travel days alone cost more than what I paid for the Swiss Travel Pass. Let alone the many times I jumped on the train and other discounted purchases like transport to the "Top of Europe." Initially, the price may seem high, but overall I saved over $150 (usd).

Totally worth it! Easy to get around via train, bus, tram, boat and also mountain excursions. The public transport system is so well and efficiently designed that you have barely any waiting times. We were able to explore many parts of Switzerland with this pass. Can not recommend highly enough.

The Swiss transport system is fantastic and the use of the Swiss Pass Travel makes the experience of using this system even simpler and more pleasant. It's really worth it for those who want to enjoy a few days in this fantastic country. super recommend.

Very useful pass for traveling in Switzerland. Easy and efficient to use . Only need to keep a passport and the bar code at all times.

Definitely a must....saves time ...money and hassle!!
