Travel for less as a group

Groups of ten people or more Benefit from 30% discount off the normal fare. 

The invoicing system for groups has been simplified. Free journeys, recognition journeys, control stamps and special regulations for schools and Y+S events have been abolished. In exchange, the discount was reduced from 20% to 30%.

Book a group trip and reserve seats

Order your group ticket from us at least two working days before your trip is due to start and before 15.00 hours and we would be happy to reserve seats for you on trains, buses and boats free of charge.

We recommend reserving early for larger groups. Please not that we are unable to reserve seats on regional trains and that seats on certain special trains with a surcharge (e.g. Glacier Express) must be reserved earlier.

Book your group trip online, in person at the ticket counter or by phone at your local BLS Travel Centre.

Moving or cancelling your trip or changing the number of travellers

If you need to move or cancel your group trip, please contact your BLS Travel Centre by 11.00 hours the day before at the latest.

There is no additional charge for moving your group trip. If you cancel your trip, we will charge a fee of CHF 30.00 per request.

If the registered passengers are unable to travel at short notice, you may confirm the actual number of travellers free of charge at the train station up to 30 minutes before departure. Or contact the train crew during the outward and return journey if possible. We will refund the relevant costs after the journey or credit them to the account. To do this, we need the validated group ticket and the unused counterfoils. We will charge a fee of CHF 20.00 per request.
