    Hi,

    What you should purchase would depend on your specific itinerary and other variables. Once you have a defined itinerary, I would recommend that you call us at 1-800-622-8600 for assistance.

    In the meantime, I would recommend taking a look at the two passes we offer just for the Jungfraujoch area: the 'Jungfraujoch Top of Europe' and the 'Jungfraujoch VIP Pass'.

    For information on the Jungfraujoch Top of Europe, you would click here: http://www.raileurope.com/activities/....

    Hello,

    The best option for your travels is dependent upon countless variables, and there would be various possibilities. If you'd like assistance determing the best option for these particular itineraries, then you would have to call us at 1-800-622-8600.

    On most reservable day trains in Europe, the passholder rates range between $11 per person and about $25 per person, but are usually $11 or $12 per person. However, he passholder rates on the direct trains from Paris to Switzerland happen to be higher than the standard reservation fees on reservable trains throughout the rest of Europe. With that said, the passholder rates on this train are still less than regular tickets.

    To ensure a particular cost being quoted is the lowest possible reservation fee for a trip, you would click the 'View' button right underneath that cost. After you've clicked on 'View', you would then refer to where it says 'Ticket Flexibility' in the box that expands below the costs and click 'Read More' next to each of the flexibility options that display there (you may see 3 options: 'Non Flexible', 'Semi Flexible' and 'Fully Flexible.) For the train from Paris to Zurich, you would be looking for a fare titled 'TGV Lyria Passholder 1' or something with 'Passholder' in its name. Generally, the Passholder rates would be found under the 'Semi Flexible' option.

    If you don't see such a Passholder fare listed, then it is likely that you're being quoted regular ticket costs. Also, if a yellow box that says 'Train Tickets Found' appears next to the schedule for the particular train you're looking at, then it is likely the Passholder fares have already sold out on that train and you're being quoted regular ticket costs. Due to high demand, the Passholder rates on these trains do sell out quickly, so I would recommend purchasing the reservations as soon as possible. These trains can be booked once within 90 days of an intended date of departure. If you'd like to verify costs shown on our website or availability, you would call us.
