    Change in reply by Jeff to <b><u>Montreux to Interlaken (via the GoldenPass)</u></b><br /><br />A connection from Montreux to Interlaken via the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/golden-pass/how-to-book.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/golden-pass/how-to-book.html">GoldenPass</a> scenic route involves changing trains once in Zweisimmen along the way. On the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/golden-pass/how-to-book.html" rel="nofollow">GoldenPass</a> trains from Montreux to Zweisimmen, reservations are highly recommended as a supplement to a rail pass. On the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/golden-pass/how-to-book.html" rel="nofollow">GoldenPass</a> trains from Zweisimmen to Interlaken, reservations are possible but not necessary.<br /><br />You would view schedules for these trains on our homepage by breaking up your search in Zweisimmen. Therefore, you would do one search for trains from Montreux to Zweisimmen and then another search for connecting trains from Zweisimmen to Interlaken. For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations for the segment from Montreux to Zweisimmen by clicking the 'Seat Reservations' tab on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">www.raileurope.com</a>), entering the route, and indicating the type of rail pass with which you'll be traveling (i.e. a 'Eurail Two Country Select Pass')..

    Change in reply by Jeff to Hi Janak,<br /><br />I'm sorry, as we are not able to account for what is offered on other websites. With that said, all of the dual country rail passes we offer are ‘Eurail’. Rail Europe is a seller of European tickets and rail passes to residents of countries outside of Europe. The term 'Eurail' just refers to a brand of rail passes, which we are able to sell.<br /><br />The <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/swiss-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow">Swiss Travel Pass</a> is not a ‘Eurail Pass’. While Eurail does have single country passes for other countries, they are not able to offer a single country rail pass just for Switzerland.<br /><br />As it happens, we at Rail Europe are able to sell the various Eurail Passes and the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/swiss-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow">Swiss Travel Pass</a>, as well as other passes..

    Changed title to Montreux to Interlaken on the GoldenPass, Jungfraujoch, and Interlaken to Zurich Airport. Are the Eurail Passes the same as the Swiss Travel Pass?

    Changed description to We have have a few questions, as listed below:1. We have purchased 10-day Flex passes, for Italy and Switzerland, for two adults along with the family card for my two kids, from your website. Are these passes the same as EuRail.com passes?2. Also, are the above mentioned passes the same as Swiss Travel Pass Flex? We are looking at other websites, to include, SwissPasses.com, where we have tickets that matches our interests, however, at those sites, we do not see an option for the two-country rail passes listed as an option. Instead, they show Swiss Travel Pass Flex as an option. Are these two passes (two country versus STP Flex) the same?3. Since we have the two country flex pass purchased from your site, do we still need to purchase tickets and seat reservations for Golden Pass covering Montreux to Interlaken on August 7th Monday?4. Where do we purchase passes for Jungfraujoch? I do not see it listed on your RailEurope.com site.5. While doing the research on your website, I see that there is a charge to go from Interlaken to Zurich Airport (August 10th Thursday). Does the two country passes not include such travel from Interlaken to Zurich Airport for free? I see various options ranging from $24 to $36.6. Which site do we go to in order to plan our local travel, say Interlaken to Wengen or other local trips?Let me know your responses soon. Thanks for your assistance in advance!Regards,Janak
