Trains return or single

Will somebody please tell me if I can get a return train ticket lasting a few days from Geneva airport to Montreux and then a train from Montreux to Geneva city . Or will I have to get separate tickets for each journey . Also what are the prices of the return tickets . or possibly single tickets each way . I am having some difficulty with the website .

Hi melynda,

Usually the train tickets are good for 24 hours, so, no, you shouldn't buy a ticket on Monday for travel on Wednesday.

The exception is if you tell the agent specifically which day you want it for -- they can issue it for a certain day. You can also specify a later date with the automatic ticket machines.

If you're having trouble getting the fares at the SBB site, keep trying. Sometimes the computers just go down. Also, make sure that you're using a date within 30 days (the fares will likely be exactly the same).

Have fun!

Swandav is right about the validity of the return tickets. Just to add: the fare of a return ticket is twice the oneway ticket, so it doesn't matter if you buy the tickets at the same time or not.

Swanday and Offer

I am really pleased with this feedback .I will just get 2 singles to Montreux and 2 back to Geneva on the days we travel . Swanday I managed to cancel the hotel in Geneva in order to spend the first to days of our stay in Montreux . I am so pleased . Its the Freddie Mecury weekend in Montreux . It would be a shame if we only got a day trip to Montreux and had to leave this beautiful part of Switzerland after only a few hours .
