    Change in reply by Jeff to Hello Asif, With the <a title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/swiss-pass/index.html" href="http://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/swiss-pass/index.html">Swiss Pass</a>, you would be able to purchase your tickets on the train from <a title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/zurich-to-milan.html" href="http://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/zurich-to-milan.html">Zurich to Milan</a> 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 <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/swiss-pass/index.html">Swiss Pass</a> to take direct trains from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/italy/milan/index.html">Milan</a> to certain cities in Switzerland at a lesser cost, even though the train would be starting in Italy, which is not covered by a <a title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/swiss-pass/index.html" href="http://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/swiss-pass/index.html">Swiss Pass</a>. To ensure you are purchasing the tickets at a Passholder 3 rate for a direct train from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/switzerland/zurich/index.html">Zurich</a> to <a title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/italy/milan/index.html" href="http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/italy/milan/index.html">Milan</a>, you would take the following steps: 1.) You would click on 'Book your Rail Pass Reservations' on <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/index.html">our homepage</a>, enter the cities, and indicate that you'll be traveling with a <a title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/swiss-pass/index.html" href="http://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/swiss-pass/index.html">Swiss Pass</a>, when prompted. 2.) You would then locate a direct train for the specific pair of cities you'll be traveling between and click on the 'View' button, which is listed with the cost for each departure shown. 3.) After you've clicked the 'View' button, 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 'Trenitalia International Trains Passholder 3'. Generally, the Passholder 3 rate would be found under the 'Semi Flexible' or possibly the 'Fully Flexible' option. 4.) Be sure the option labeled as 'Trenitalia International Trains Passholder 3' is checked and then click 'Select' to proceed and add the ticket to your shopping cart. In some instances, from this kind of search, you may see an incorrect error message that states the following: "This train requires the passholder to purchase a seat reservation; however the passholder fares are unavailable or sold out at this time. This schedule is informational only. Please reserve your train at a train station in Europe." You can disregard this error message as it is very possible that the train is not "unavailable or sold out" as it states, and I would then recommend that you call us at 1-800-622-8600 to verify the fare's availability and book your tickets. We hope to have the issue with this error message showing fixed as soon as possible, and we're sorry for any confusion..

This would not be able to be done at the station in <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/switzerland/zurich/index.html">Zurich</a> prior to boarding..
