    Hi Mukesh.

    With a Swiss Travel Pass, you would be able to receive a discounted rate called the 'Passholder 3' for a ticket on a 'TGV Lyria' train from Paris to Zurich.

    You would purchase tickets at a 'Passholder 3' rates for a 'TGV Lyria' train from Paris to Zurich by clicking on 'Book your Rail Pass Reservations' on our homepage (instead of 'Find Fares & Schedules'), entering the route, and indicating that you'll be traveling with the 'Swiss Travel Pass'.

    To ensure that it's a 'Passholder 3' rate you're being quoted when you pull up the results of your search, you would click the 'View' button for the cost listed under your preferred class of service for your preferred departure. After you click the 'View' button, a box will expand out underneath. In this box, you would refer to the option(s) listed under where it says 'Ticket Flexibility' and click 'Read More'. When you click 'Read More', the name of the fare should display as something like 'TGV Lyria Passholder 3'. Generally, the Passholder 3 rates for these trains would be the 'Semi Flexible' option under 'Ticket Flexibility'.

    With that said, I would still recommend checking the regular ticket costs for this route, because there may be other discounted rates offered even lower than the 'Passholder 3' rate. To check regular ticket costs, you would click on 'Find Fares & Schedules' on our homepage (instead of 'Book your Rail Pass Reservations'), enter the route, and not indicate that you'll be traveling with any type of rail pass.

    These trains can sell out quickly, so it would be recommended that the tickets be purchased as soon as possible.Generally, trains from Paris to Zurich can be booked once within 90 days of an intended date of departure.

    You would purchase the Swiss Travel Pass here: http://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/swiss-pass/index.html.
