I hold a valid Eurail pass, and I am looking to do boat rides in Switzerland (in particular Lake Lucerne and Lake Geneva).

Couple of queries regarding 50% discount on these lakes -

  1. How to avail this 50% discount? Is it only via in-person booking where I need to show my eurail pass to get discount?
  2. Is there any way to avail this discount while purchasing ticket online? Currently I only see reduction option for Swiss half fare card and not for the Eurail Pass while online booking.
  3. If I use this 50% discount, does it count in one of my travel dates validity?

No, if you on a day only uses your pass for a discounted travel that day is not a travel day and the journey shall NOT be registered in "My Trip" and NOT be connect to the pass.

And why all this fuss about online booking etc-just buy ticket at quay-or on minor lines on board. Show pass and you get half fare ticket-if you look around you may note that about anyone in Swiss willl have some kind of discount-even with disco the fares are still higher as normal fares out of swiss.
