    Hi Lissette,

    Please refer to my response to your other post here: http://community.raileurope.com/raileurope/topics/buying-an-italy-switzerland-5-day-pass.

    In addition:

    Rail passes only cover some trains into stations at airports.

    Only if booked for 1st class would a Eurail Select Pass cover the express trains from the Rome FCO Airport into the city of Rome. The express trains from Rome FCO to the city of Rome are known as Leonardo Express trains and are labeled 'Regionale Veloce' on our website. They arrive into the Termini station in Rome. These trains depart once every half hour throughout the day, and the ride only takes about a half hour.

    The Eurail Select Pass does cover trains from Lucerne to the Zurich Airport or Zurich to the Zurich Airport.

    Trains from Lucerne to Zurich do not accept reservations, so the Eurail Select Pass is all you would need to board. For planning purposes, you can still view schedules from Lucerne to Zurich by doing a search on our homepage.

    Trains from the city of Zurich to the station at the Zurich Airport also do not accept reservations, so the Eurail Select Pass is all you would need to board. Currently, it is not possible to view schedules from Zurich to the Zurich Airport on our website, but the trains depart 10 times an hour throughout the day, and the ride only takes 10-15 minutes.
