~ Double the fun in Switzerland with the Twice as Nice; 2 for 1 Swiss Pass Special from Rail Europe~

White Plains, N.Y., March 5, 2012 - Rail Europe Inc in partnership with Switzerland Tourism and STS, the Swiss Travel System, makes traveling through Switzerland better value than ever with the Twice As Nice: 2 for 1 Swiss Pass Special*. Now through May 25, 2012, travelers who book four-day Swiss Saver Passes or Swiss Saver Flexi Passes for two, only pay for the cost of one traveler! Travel is valid from April 1 through May 31, 2012, and bookings can be made by visiting Rail Europe’s website at RailEurope.com, myswitzerland.com/rail, or by calling Rail Europe’s Contact Center.

A visit to Switzerland in the spring means that travelers can still enjoy the beauty of a late winter - from the snowy Swiss Alps and blooming cherry trees in Northern and Western Switzerland; to the warmth of an early summer with the magnolias trees beginning to bloom in the Italian-speaking Ticino region.

Prices** for the Swiss Saver pass begin at $404 USD/ $410 CAD for two in first class seating and $254 USD/$258 CAD for two in second class seating. Rates for the Swiss Saver Flexi Passes begin at $470 USD/ $476 CAD for two in first class seating and $294 USD/$298 CAD for two in second class seating.

Switzerland boasts an incredibly comprehensive and navigable transportation system, allowing travelers to enjoy all the adventure and natural beauty the country has to offer. The Swiss Pass provides unlimited travel on all trains, boats and postal buses throughout the Swiss Travel System. As an added bonus, children up to the age of 15 ride free, and all Swiss Pass holders receive free access to more than 400 museums in Switzerland.

*Offer is subject to change or extension without notice. No other discounts can be combined. Valid for bookings made before or on 11:59 p.m. (EST) on May 25, 2012. Offer only valid for two travelers traveling together at all times. All travel must be completed by May 31, 2012.
