Where can I travel with the Saver Day Pass?

The Saver Day Pass is valid within the area of validity of the GA travelcard (a rail card for Swiss residents). The map offers a detailed overview. In summary:

  • Trains and buses to villages are free (solid and dashed lines);
  • Transport into the mountains (dotted lines: cable car, funicular, cogwheel train, etc.) is not free and not discounted, but there are a few exceptions;
  • City transport (trams, buses) is free;
  • Boats are free, except for special cruises such as dinner cruises;
  • The Saver Day Pass is valid in Switzerland only. A few train and bus routes crossing the border allow free traveling too. Examples are EuroAirport (France) to Basel, Brig to Domodossola (Italy), Domodossola to Locarno (Centovalli line) and buses in Liechtenstein.

How the map works

  • The route types are explained in the bottom of the map;
  • With a Saver Day Pass you can travel on all trains that operate on the indicated lines and that are listed in the timetables. The train type (InterCity, local, panoramic) and the operating company do not matter. The Glacier Express, Bernina Express, Golden Pass and other panoramic trains are thus included, except for seat reservations;
  • Some lines are dashed to indicate tunnels, but free traveling applies there too. Frutigen to Visp is an example of such a route;
  • There are too many bus routes to fit on the map. In principle, all public bus services are free of charge.
