Questions & Answers

Question: Is the price quoted for one or two people? How much time is spent on the train and what meals are provided on the train? Do you have a connection with various airlines to get air fare at a discount?

All pricing on our website is per person. Meals are not provided on the Golden Pass train however there will be a snack cart where you can purchase food. On the Glacier Express from St. Mortiz to Zermatt you will have an included lunch as this train ride clocks in at 8 hours. We are able to get airfare at competitive prices through the tour operator or through a third party consolidator.

Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?

Each person is allowed one "check-in," and one "carry-on." Remember to take all valuables with you as "carry-on", because electronic equipment, cameras, laptops, jewelry, business documents and money are not covered by the airlines' liability, so always carry them aboard with you.

Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?

Airfare from your point of origin to and from the trip is not included in the land price.
