Swiss 2 for 1 pass not considered a Swiss Pass?

When I was booking a point to point ticket and select I have Swiss 2 for 1 pass, there is no discount for the ticket from Lausanne to Paris and that no ticket can be purchased. There is however ticket availability discount when Swiss Pass is selected. So is Swiss 2 for 1 pass not considered a Swiss Pass?

  • Hello,

    The Swiss Fall 2-for-1 Promo is a Swiss Pass. Since the Swiss Fall 2-for-1 Promo is a temporary promotion, it is not able to be recognized in the field for the type of pass you'll be traveling with. Therefore, you would just type 'Swiss Pass' instead.

    With the Swiss Pass or the Swiss Fall 2-for-1 Pass, you can purchase your tickets for the Lyria high-speed train from Lausanne to Paris at what is known as the 'Passholder 3' rate. The Passholder 3 rate is a special rate that was created to allow passengers in possession of a Swiss Pass to take a direct train from certain cities in Switzerland to Paris at a lesser cost, even though the train would be traveling through France.

    To ensure you are purchasing the tickets at a Passholder 3 rate for a direct train from Lausanne to Paris, you would take the following steps:

    1.) You would do a search for the individual train under 'Book your Rail Pass Reservations' and indicate the type of pass you are traveling with when prompted (you would just type 'Swiss Pass').

    2.) You would then locate a direct train and click on 'View' listed with the costs that are shown for your preferred train.

    3.) After you've clicked on 'View', you would then refer to where it says 'Ticket Flexibility'. Underneath 'Ticket Flexibility', you may see 3 options: 'Non Flexible', 'Semi Flexible' and 'Fully Flexible. You would click 'Read More' next to each of these options until you see the fare titled 'Lyria TGV (France-Switzerland) Passholder 3'. Generally, the Passholder 3 rate for this train would be found under the 'Fully Flexible' option.

    4.) Be sure the option labeled as 'Lyria TGV (France-Switzerland) Passholder 3' is checked, and then click 'Select' to proceed and add it to your shopping cart.
