LuxeGetaways - - Travel -

Ex­press Flight Lug­gage Ser­vice: For Amer­i­cans mak­ing the trek with ski equip­ment or mul­ti­ple wardrobe op­tions seems like a daunt­ing task, how­ever SBB has a plan to al­le­vi­ate travel strain with their lug­gage trans­porta­tion ser­vices. Pas­sen­gers can check-in cum­ber­some and over­sized suit­cases filled with skis, snow­boards, or ridicu­lous amounts of shoes at the air­lines when fly­ing into Zurich or Geneva, and sim­ply board the train with only hand lug­gage in tow. SBB makes sure that your items reach your fi­nal train des­ti­na­tion, and can also in­clude door-to-door ser­vice from ho­tel to ho­tel. Cus­toms pa­per­work is filled out in ad­vance sav­ing you has­sle and time. This was pre­vi­ously re­ferred to as “Check-In and Fly Rail” Pack­ages, and note that Rail Europe will also work with you to co­or­di­nate th­ese ser­vices when book­ing with them.

Free WiFi: The work of a travel writer is never done – live so­cial me­dia post­ings, stay­ing in touch with ed­i­tors, and of course shoot­ing over quick emails to fam­ily are im­por­tant tasks of the day. SBB of­fers free In­ter­net ac­cess at over 80 sta­tions across Switzer­land mak­ing it easy to work and play at the same time.

First Class Lounges: Both Zurich and Geneva rail­way sta­tions have SBB Lounges. The ex­clu­sive area is re­served for pas­sen­gers hold­ing a 1st class GA trav­el­card, a 1st class ticket for an in­ter­na­tional ser­vice, or a Rail­team fre­quent trav­eler card. Ameni­ties in­clude non-al­co­holic drinks, news­pa­pers and mag­a­zines, com­puter work sta­tions with in­ter­net ac­cess at­tached to print­ers, free WiFi and cus­tomer ser­vice help with pur­chas­ing and ex­chang­ing tick­ets.
