Does Eurail Global Pass give same bonuses as Swiss Pass?

when my clients purchase a Eurrail Global pass for 2 days in France, 6 day travel in Switzerland, 1 day in Italy - does this give them ALL of the advantages of the Swiss pass?? Eurrail Global is $659 p.p. and the Swiss pass alone is $592 p.p. with all the benefits for train, bus, boat trips - do they get these benefits with the Global pass?
need to book asap for 9/20 departure to Paris. can never get thru to Eurrail agent.
thanks, Carol (agent)

  • Hi Carol,

    The Eurail Global Pass does not grant all the same bonuses in Switzerland as a Swiss Pass would.

    In most cases, the multi-country Eurail passes would cover all the same that a single country pass would for a particular country. However, the Swiss Pass is different from other single country passes. It is unique in that it covers the entire Swiss Travel Network, including buses and boats. Therefore, it doesn't just cover the trains, as other passes do. The Swiss Pass also allows for entry to over 400 museums and discounts on various hotels and guided tours. A Eurail Select Pass that includes Switzerland or a Eurail Global Pass would not offer these bonuses.

    To view the bonuses offered, you would click the 'Travel Bonuses' tab once you have accessed the page for the Swiss Pass on our website.

  • Thanks very much Jeff - that's what I will share with the clients and we'll go from there. That helps a lot to confirm -
