    Hi Dennis,

    A connection from Milan to Zermatt would involve changing trains once in Brig along the way.

    With a Swiss Pass, you would be eligible to receive a rate called the 'Passholder 3' rate on a train from Milan to Brig. The Passholder 3 rate is a special rate on these trains created to allow passengers in possession of a rail pass that doesn't include Italy, to still take the train at a lesser cost.

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

    1.) You would do a search for trains from Milan to Brig 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 from Milan to Brig and click on the 'View' button (listed with the costs that are shown for your preferred departure).

    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 '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 it to your shopping cart.

    Trains from Milan to Brig can be booked once within 90 days of an intended date of departure. If your intended departure date happens to fall outside of this time frame, you would just enter an earlier date, within the next 90 days, to get an idea of the costs and view schedules when searching the route on our site.

    Your Swiss Pass is then all you would need to board a connecting train from Brig to Zermatt.
