International Trains to Switzerland using Swiss Pass

Jump to last reply

In my quest to complete my "which is the best pass/option" train ticket spreadsheet, I was trying to figure out how I would book train tickets between Salzburg and Zurich online using a Swiss Pass, and came upon this at http://www.swisstravelsystem.com/en/support/Frequently-Asked-Questions.html:

"When booking an international rail ticket to Switzerland you will be entitled to free travel once you cross the Swiss border – if already in possession of a valid Swiss Pass. On purchasing your international rail ticket, please specify therefore that you are in possession of a "GA" General Travelcard (the Swiss Pass equivalent for residents of Switzerland). This means you will be required to pay only for the part of your journey outside Switzerland – and can then travel on your Swiss Pass from the Swiss border to your holiday destination."

Ok, so far so good. Happy to know to use GA for ordering tickets with a Swiss Pass. Then they throw this in:

"Please note however that you cannot benefit from this reduction on connections from Germany and Austria (except on City Night Line trains requiring advance reservation)."

Am I reading this wrong or does that say that if I purchased a ticket between Salzburg to Zurich I'd pay the same with or without a Swiss Pass?
