Flexi-pass. Do I have purchase prior to departing the US? or can I purchase in Switzerland?

  • Hi Caitlin,

    It is important to purchase your rail tickets/passes prior to departing for Europe to avoid any language barrier or long lines at the station. The promotion that is being offered may not be offered locally.
    We do have time to send the rail pass prior to your departure to Europe. We will send the rail pass via UPS standard delivery which is for 2-3 business days or you can choose express delivery which is for the next business day.

  • If I have an address in Switzerland to send to can I do that. It seems like UPS 2-3 days would be very expensive from Europe to the US. We also have two people purchasing from Colombia it wont get to them in time. So would I be able to send them to my dad's office in Lausanne?

      Hi Caitlin,

      Rail Europe is the North American-based rail ticket distributor for the various national rail networks and train operators of Europe, and most of our tickets and passes are physical documents that would have to be shipped to you, including all rail passes.

      You can arrange for delivery to an address in Europe; however, delivery to an international address is not able to be arranged on our website. To arrange for an order to be delivered to you at an address in Europe, you would call us at 1-800-622-8600 or 1-847-916-1028. Our current hours are 9:00 AM to 7:30 PM ET Monday to Friday. Shipping to Europe can take 3 to 5 business days.
