Is it alright to get off the train mid-trip and board a latter train, using the same ticket?

We will be traveling from Geneve CFF to Zermatt with a stop in Lausanne. Is it alright to get off the train in Lausanne and board a latter train, using the same ticket?

    Hi Nancy,

    With regard to this route, yes. Tickets for trains in Switzerland are issued as 'open tickets', which would enable you to get off at one of the stops along the way and continue on to your final destination on a later train.

    Therefore, you would be able to do one search for the full route from Geneva to Zermatt when you go to purchase the tickets on our site. You would purchase tickets by clicking on 'Find Fares & Schedules' on our homepage ( and entering the route.

    With the 'open tickets', you would have 15 days to complete the full journey. You would just not be able to backtrack or cover ground that you've already traveled. The 15 day time period would begin on the date for which you perform your search on our website when you purchase the actual tickets.

    The connection from Geneva to Zermatt involves changing trains once in Visp along the way, and the train from Geneva to Visp stops in Lausanne en route. The tickets we issue would reflect 'Geneva' as your starting point and 'Zermatt' as your destination.
