SWISS offers stopovers in Switzerland
February 2019 10215

TRAVEL habits are evolving: travellers want to increasingly experience a variety of destinations and activities in one trip. They are willing to immerse themselves in a destination for just a few days to gain a first impression.

In line with this, SWISS International Airlines (SWISS) now offers its travellers the option of booking a variety of destination packages to explore Switzerland’s iconic sights and cities within a couple of days. The new “Stopover Switzerland” programme is a collaboration between SWISS, Switzerland Tourism and Switzerland Travel Centre, offering an initial range of eight different tourist packages covering all Swiss regions with accommodation and public transport included. Both leisure and business travellers can extend their stopover in Switzerland by one to four nights.

Travel agents can book these packages online on and earn a commission of 8 per cent.

A range of eight customised single or multi-destination travel packages have been born, which includes accommodation in a three- or four-star hotel at the chosen destination plus all public transport. With the single-destination Stopover Switzerland packages, which are bookable for one to four nights, guests choose one Swiss city such as Zurich, Interlaken or Lucerne as the base for their excursions and discoveries. The package also includes tips on possible local trips and activities, to help the guest make the most of their stay. All packages also include a Swiss Travel Pass for 1st or 2nd class travel, giving unlimited rides on Switzerland’s extensive public transport system for the duration of the stopover

The multi-destination Stopover Switzerland packages, which are bookable for two to four nights, offer a fixed itinerary including transport with different locations for the overnight stays in three- or four-star hotels, as well as a flexible range of activities. Guests can, for example, choose the “Best of Switzerland” package, which includes excursions to some of the most popular Swiss lakes and mountains.
