Is Swiss Flexi Pass good for consectutive days of travel?

I'm confused on the Swiss Flexi Pass versus the regular Swiss Pass. I'll be in Switzerland for only three days. I'll need to use the Swiss rail system every day. Will a 3 day Swiss Flexi Pass work or do I need the 4 day Swiss Pass? My questions is regarding my consecutive vs. non-consectutive confusion on the Flexi Pass. Is the 3 day Flexi Pass only for non-consectutive days? Or can it be used for consectutive days as well?

    Hi Al,

    The Swiss Pass and Swiss Flexi Pass cover the same things. The Swiss Pass is just offered in 2 different formats: consecutive and flexi.

    The consecutive day passes allow for unlimited train travel within a set time frame. For instance, if you were to purchase the 8 day consecutive pass, then you would be entitled to unlimited travel within that time frame of 8 days.

    A flexi pass allows for a set number of travel days, which must be completed within a time frame of 1 month or 2 months (1 month in the case of the Swiss Pass).

    'Travel days' on a flexi pass refer to how many separate days you plan on using your railpass. A rail day is a 24-hour period from midnight to midnight. You may take as many trains as you wish during the 24 hour time frame and still only use one day of travel on a pass. For instance, if you were take a day train from Zurich to Bern and then take a connecting train to Interlaken on the same day, then you would only use up one day of travel on your rail pass. In contrast, if you were to take that connecting train to Interlaken on the next day, then you would use up 2 days of rail travel on your pass.

    Thus, the number of days you choose to put on a flexi pass depends on the specific trips you plan to make.

    The days on a flexi pass can still be used consecutively, if need be.
