Hello Prem,

Thanks for the question.

You can purchase point to point ticket for your travel from Amsterdam to Paris as follows:

- Amsterdam to Paris - Thalys train.

You can purchase Swiss Travel Pass for your travel in Switzerland and Eurail Italy Pass for your travel in Italy.

To purchase Swiss Travel Pass click "Here".

To purchase Eurail Italy Pass click "Here".

With a Swiss Travel Pass you will avail passholder fares from Paris to Zurich on direct TGV Lyria train for which you will have to purchase seat reservations.

You will also have to purchase point to point ticket from Chiasso to Como as there are no 2 country Pass including Switzerland and Italy.

- Chiasso to Como - Regional train.

The route to Jungfraujoch is as follows:

Interlaken – Grindelwald/ Lauterbrunnen – Jungfraujoch.

Interlaken – Grindelwald/ Lauterbrunnen : Free with the Swiss Pass

Grindelwald/ Lauterbrunnen– Jungfraujoch : Mountain Train/Cable Car ride, has to be booked locally. You will get a discount with the Swiss Travel Pass.

Keep in mind that seat reservations would be mandatory for all High-Speed, Night, Scenic and Border Crossing trains. But, you will avail pass holder/discounted fares for these journeys with the pass. With a Pass you can travel on regional/intercity trains within a country.

In order to book tickets, please visit our website.

You would need to feed in the Departure city and the Arrival city along with the travel date and preferred time & the number of passengers (Senior, adults, youth and children), and then click on “search tickets”. Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares. You need to select the fare which is preferable to you and then add it to Cart. Once added, you need to mention the names of the passengers to make the payment on the next page.

To purchase seat reservations kindly follow the above procedure by clicking on seat reservations tab.

Hope this helps!!!

Thanks for all the information.

I am confused about the point to point ticket from Chiasso to Como, i thought i would receive pass holder fare rates on this route using the Swiss Pass.

Please advise.

Hello Prem,

Thanks for your reply.

With a Swiss Travel Pass you will not avail passholder fares to Italy. Also, as there are no 2 country Pass with Switzerland and Italy you will have to purchase 2 separate Passes for your travel. Hence you will have to purchase point to point ticket from the bordering station of Switzerland to the bordering station of Italy i.e. from Chiasso to Como.

Hope this helps!!!

Hello Prem,

Thanks for your reply.

As you will purchase Swiss Travel Pass and Eurail Italy Pass you do not have to purchase point to point ticket from Zurich to Milan, but from the boarder station of Switzerland i.e. Chiasso to the boarder station of Italy i.e. Como.
