Journeying by Rail through Switzerland – #travel


Journeying by Rail through Switzerland is the destination. Hop aboard the GoldenPass Tour to take in the jaw-dropping beauty of chalet-filled villages and pastoral valleys, pristine lakes, and sky-piercing mountain peaks – from über-modern, panoramic cars or elegant, Belle Epoque carriages. Enjoy Swiss hospitality in both Lucerne and Interlaken on the Tops of Switzerland; extend your travels with a night in Montreux. Or ascend to new heights on the Swiss Rail Adventure, which combines journeys aboard the William Tell Express, Bernina Express, and Glacier Express. Travel in first-class comfort through tunnels, over viaducts and along snowcapped mountaintops – with overnights in Lucerne, Italy-inspired Lugano, chic St. Moritz, and “car-free” Zermatt.

How To Plan Ahead For Your Vacation

9-12 months to go

Your travel advisor can help with accommodation options and the best dates to travel. For involved trips such as Antarctic expeditions and African safaris, and anywhere in the Caribbean over the holidays, booking early – right around a year in advance – is essential. If you’re interested in expedited customs clearance via the Global Entry program, get the application process started about a year out as well.

5-8 months to go

Secure flights, hotels, and required visas, and confirm that your passport is good to go: For many countries, it’s invalid if it expires within six months of your return.

2-4 months to go

Work with your advisor to map out an itinerary, make restaurant reservations, and book tours. Pay attention to logistics, like the fact that many museums in Europe are closed on Mondays or Tuesdays.

1 month to go

Arrange for a sitter to look after your pets, or make a boarding reservation. (Or find a pet-friendly hotel.)

1-2 weeks to go

Leave time to pick up last-minute items, such as adapters and travel-size products.

1-3 days to go

Set travel alerts on your credit cards, sign up for airline notifications, and download movies, e-books, and apps for your flight.

2 hours to go-

… with time to spare (and shop).
