Did you know? Key facts about annual travel insurance

Annual travel insurance at a glance.

Be it due to illness, an accident or an emergency involving a member of the family – every year, thousands of Swiss people are forced to put their holiday plans on hold. Particularly if you are forced to cancel a trip at short notice, you can expect to be faced with a hefty bill for cancellation costs corresponding to as much as 100 per cent of the price of the trip. With HanseMerkur’s annual travel insurance, you can prevent falling into this financial trap: we reimburse you for the contractually owed cancellation costs charged by your tour operator or carrier – without any excess on your part. We also contribute to the rebooking costs if, for example, you have to embark on your trip later than planned, or interrupt a trip you have already embarked on.

The safe holiday guarantee: annual travel insurance with the worry-free package

Cancellation insurance allows you to avoid a hefty bill if you need to cancel your trip unexpectedly before departure. Mishaps can soon become expensive when you have reached your destination as well. After all, medical services are a very expensive matter in other countries – particularly in places like the US, Canada, Japan or Australia. Similarly, damaged luggage or a legal dispute can leave a real dent in your travel budget. Our tip: save money with our cost-effective annual travel insurance. The annual policy offers worldwide protection for an unlimited number of trips. The premium annual policy also gives you health insurance for travel abroad with top benefits. Did you know?: annual travel insurance can also be taken out for business travel.

I recently had the misfortune of using BusinessTravel365 for my travel needs and I have to say, it was one of the worst experiences I have ever had. Their service is absolutely awful and I would strongly advise anyone against going anywhere near them. First of all, the agency was completely unresponsive to my requests. I had to constantly follow up with them for information and they seemed disinterested in helping me. This should have been a red flag for me, but unfortunately I trusted them to handle my travel arrangements. To make matters worse, they actually charged my card for services that were never provided. I reached out to them multiple times to try and rectify this issue, but they never bothered to respond or even attempt to refund me. This level of customer service is completely unacceptable and it is clear that BusinessTravel365 does not prioritize their clients' satisfaction. I cannot stress enough how terrible my experience was with this agency. If you value your time, money, and overall sanity, please stay far away from BusinessTravel365. There are plenty of reputable travel agencies out there that will actually take care of their clients and provide excellent service. Don't make the same mistake I did and avoid BusinessTravel365 at all costs. Trust me, you do not want to miss your flight because of their incompetence.

Working with Elaine was a breeze. She made a point of keeping me informed every step of the way through our booking. The price was definitely better than another business flight agent that we spoke to. Would definitely use this company again for flying business overseas. Thank you so much Elaine for your great service and keeping me up-to-date every step of the way!

Please ignore the review I posted…

Please ignore the review I posted earlier. I thought I'd gotten a significant discount, showed up at the airport to find out that they'd neglected to book the right date with the carrier. I spent two anxious hours waiting for them to finally get me another flight that night. Then it took more than a week for them to confirm a return flight for me on the date I wanted. In addition, I was charged an extra $350 for all of this repeat booking, was told that I'd get the money back as soon as everything was taken care of, i've been home a month and no sign of the refund. Yes, I got a good price, but not enough to justify all of the aggravation it cost me.

We emailed several times with additional questions/concerns and received answers within the same timeframe or quicker. Pricing was 10%+ better than his competitors. And, WHAT TO TRULY NOT FORGET, THIS WAS A SATURDAY NIGHT AND SUNDAY MORNING. Yanis' work ethic is textbook. .Call Yanis. You'll be happy you do, Karla and Pres North Carolina.

Excellent service and pricing

We have used Business Travel 365 several times and the service and pricing Erik gives us is always excellent. Last week British Air cancelled our and my wife's brother's family flights to Prague for our son's wedding. Erik was a tireless warrior and spent the better part of 4 days and many hours finding all of us new business class flights with Lufthansa. I cannot say enough about the wonderful and compassionate service Erik provided us. Thank you so much Erik!

Best Customer Service with William

I have had the best experience with this company. I strongly recommend working with William. He was able to find flights that suited our travel plans with only one stop. We’re paying half as much as others who are also flying business class. William has always been available to answer all of my questions.

Thank you so much for the kind words Beth!

Crazy prices became affordable!

We were looking for flights and getting 10k to 14k prices, anything cheaper was not feasible (30 hours travel time etc). I contacted a few companies and Yanis rang me and over the course of a few days (and a weekend even out of the office) he managed to get us better flights for half the price. It took a bit of back and forth and with our delays we lost a few options (our fault) but Yanis was able to find us replacements as quick as he could. Highly recommended!

Easy booking with Businesstravel365

It was my first time booking with Businesstravel365. I highly recommend it!...A representative named RIO was my adviser. He was courteous, professional and delivered the best deal I could have imagined. He took his time to know my traveling preferences and found the best deal available. I was getting frustrated and confused checking different sites. For sure I will use them to book my next holiday plans.

Chris Nyberg was extremely knowledgeable about flight options for a rather complex, multi-city trip.

Excellent experience

Excellent experience. I admit I was a little skeptical about using a flight discount service as I never had used one before - Would it be totally legit? Would I get good business class seats on convenient flights? Would there be no hitches? The answer to all is absolutely yes. Booking was easy, I got great seats on direct flights to and from London, and I saved thousands of dollars on the fare. No hiccups whatsoever. Will definitely use for international travel from now on. Highly recommend.

Bernina Express Complete Guide: Is It Worth It?

Robert Marmion

When we started planning our trip to Switzerland, one of the main reasons we wanted to go was to ride the Bernina Express. During this magical trip, the train passes through 55 tunnels and goes over 196 bridges. We had heard of the beauty that can be seen from the train and wanted to experience it for ourselves. Did the experience live up to the hype, and was the Bernina Express worth it?

Is the Bernina Express worth it?

Before you read any further, you need to know the Bernina Express is worth the cost of riding it. It is simply put one of the best train rides in the world. It will be worth the cost in both money and time to ride the Bernina Express. It ranks as one of our top 5 train rides of all time. You will not be disappointed by riding on the Bernina Express in Switzerland

What is it like to ride the Bernina Express

First class on the bernina express.

Riding in first class on the Bernina Express is worth it if you are able to get the side with 2 seats by themselves that are facing each other with a table. If you are in the section of 4 seats, there is almost no difference between first and second class.

Unfortunately, the tables on the Bernina Express are really small, and even in first class, they don’t allow the outside passengers a place to use the table.

Bernina Express first class

You aren’t really meant to eat meals on the Bernina Express, but the lack of a table seemed problematic for several passengers on our train. Those sitting on the outside were less happy about their seat than those on the inside, especially if they didn’t know the people next to them.

Bernina Express second class

The second class seats have the same table, but slightly narrower seats. The windows are the same, so the only real difference is the width of the seats.

If however you get a seat in first class on the side with only 2 seats, that is the best way to go.

travel 365 berna

These seats give you the most room to stretch out, a guaranteed window seat, and a private table.

Are there luggage racks

In our first class car on the Bernina Express there were no luggage racks. For some reason the luggage racks were replaced by a library. In our car the passengers that had luggage kept it at their seat. In the 2nd class car however, there were luggage racks, but no books.

travel 365 berna

We didn’t see anyone take a book, but we saw a few people wish there were luggage racks! Here is a shot of the luggage racks in 2nd class.

Bernina Express luggage racks

How to buy tickets on the Bernina Express

To ride the Bernina Express you’ll need both a seat reservation and a ticket. If you have the Swiss Travel Pass, that counts as your ticket, so you’ll only need to buy the seat reservation. If you won’t have the Swiss Travel pass you’ll need to buy both. Tickets for the Bernina Express can be booked online at the Rhaetian Railway website .

Step 1 : Once you click on book tickets you’ll be greeted with this form.

booking tickets on the Bernina Express

Type in your beginning and ending stations as well as the date of travel, trip type and class. Hit Next.

Step 2: Pick which train you want from the times listed. Some dates only have 1 train. At the bottom of the screen you’ll see a seat map. Light green seats are available, dark green seats are your selected seats and gray seats are unavailable. The seats at the top of the chart in a single line are first class seats on the side with only one seat. If you can get them, these are the best seats. For example in this picture, seats 21 and 22 would be private seats facing each other with a table. After choosing your seats click the Next button.

booking tickets on the Bernina Express

Step 3: If you don’t have a Swiss Travel Pass you can add them to your cart. If you will have a Swiss Travel Pass you need to select the pass you have so you are only buying seat reservations and not a ticket.

booking tickets on the Bernina Express

To apply your Swiss Travel Pass discount, select the Swiss Travel Pass under the Reduction box.

booking tickets on the Bernina Express

After selecting your pass you’ll note the price has gone down by whatever the cost of the ticket is for your dates.

Tip!: You don’t have to buy your ticket and seat reservation on the same day. It is important to get the seat reservation well in advance. You can wait and buy your Swiss Travel Pass or ticket right before your trip, but the seat reservations will sell out.

You can only book tickets 2 months in advance, but you can get seat reservations far ahead of that. Our advice is to book your seat reservation as soon as you think you are going on the trip.

booking tickets on the Bernina Express

How much does the Bernina Express Cost

Tickets for the full route of the Bernina Express cost CHF 63 in second class and CHF 111 in first class. This covers the route from Chur to Tirano or in reverse direction. A round trip fare is double this price.

Seat reservations are also needed to ride the Bernina Express. From June to October the seat reservation is CHF 26, from November until early December it is CHF 20, and the rest of the year it is CHF 24.

You need a seat reservation both ways if you are making a round trip.

Does the Swiss Travel Pass cover the Bernina Express

The Bernina Express is covered by the Swiss Travel Pass. You can ride the Bernina Express in whichever class you’ve booked your Swiss Travel Pass. On top of your Swiss Travel Pass you’ll need a seat reservation.

Does the Bernina Express run all year

The Bernina Express runs all year, including winter. It is available 365 days a year. It is a beautiful ride all year long, but our favorite seasons are late winter, in February and early summer, in June.

Which side is best to sit on the Bernina Express

Riding south on the Bernina Express from Chur to Tirano, you’ll want to be on the right side of the train. Most of the best views can be seen from the right side of the train. There is no way to guarantee which side of the train you’ll be on when booking however. If you are on a side that won’t permit you to see what you’d like, take advantage of the large picture windows by the bathrooms.

Bernina Express windows

You should also consider riding the regional trains back from the Bernina Express to Chur. You’ll probably have much smaller crowds on the regional train and will be able to sit on whichever side you’d like.

What is the Bernina Express Route

The Bernina Express is one of the best train routes in the world. Beautiful all year round, there is always something amazing to see around each bend on this ride. The full route stretches from Chur, Switzerland to Tirano, Italy. If you are unable to enter Italy, you can get off at one of the last stops in Switzerland and return from there. On our recent trip, we got off at Campocologno, Switzerland, which is the last place to get off before entering Italy.

Bernina Express highlights

Chur is the starting point of the Bernina Express, and a good place to base out of when riding both ways. We stayed in the Hotel Franziskaner , and had a great time there.

The Albula region is known for the famous Albula Tunnel and the beautiful circular routes around the area. The towns that can be seen from the train though are just as stunning.

Albula

Landwasser Viaduct

The prize of the route has to be the Landwasser Viaduct. It is a stunning piece of engineering, and one of the most picturesque sights from a train. Have your camera ready when you approach it the tunnel. It is best viewed heading south from the right side of the train. You’ll also go over it going north, but you’ll have to look back at it.

Bernina Express on Landwasser Viaduct

Here is what the viaduct will look like from in the train.

Landwasser Viaduct

  • Ospizio Bernina

Ospizio Bernina marks the highest point of the Bernina Express route. At 2,253 meters you should have snow there much of the year. When we passed through this region there were lots of people enjoying themselves by kite skiing.

Bernina Express

In the winter this landscape can look like the surface of the moon as far as the eye can see, it is quite a spectacle.

Bernina Express

In the summer however, the snow gives way to a lush lake filled mountain range.

Bernina Express

Alp Grum is a fun stop where the train will take an extended break and let passengers get off to pose with the Bernina Express sign. If you are visiting in winter, bring your hat and gloves, it will be very cold outside!

Bernina Express at Alp Grum

Brusio Viaduct

At the Brusio Viaduct, the train will make a complete 360 degree turn through the viaduct. It is an absolutely amazing to experience. The best views of the viaduct on are the right heading south and the left heading north.

Brusio Viaduct with Bernina Express

Which part of the Bernina Express is the best

The best section of the Bernina Express is from the Landwasser Viaduct travelling south to the Brusio Viaduct. To see all of the best sights you need to be on the train from Tiefencastel to Campocologno.

Can you do the Bernina Express in one day

The Bernina Express only takes 4 hours and 17 minutes form Chur, Switzerland to Tirano, Italy so it can easily be done in one day. If you are staying in Switzerland after riding it south you’ll likely take a regional train that takes the same route back north. We rode the Bernina Express round trip from Chur in one day, taking the Bernina Express south and a combination of regional trains back north to Chur.

We recommend doing it this way as you’ll get the experience of the Bernina Express one direction, and probably have a much less crowded ride back on the regional train. Many people, including us, think the regional trains are just as good of an experience as the Bernina Express.

Surprisingly, the regional trains have incredible windows as well, so the views will not be missed when riding them. Second class on the regional train looked almost exactly like second class on the Bernina Express. The biggest difference was that we were the only people in our car on the regional train.

Swiss regional train

Can you get off the Bernina Express

You can get off the Bernina Express when you want, but it is not a hop on hop off train. You’ll need a new seat reservation and ticket each time you want to board. You should ride this train as far as you can and use regional trains to hop on and off if that is what you want to do.

How long is the Bernina Express

The Bernina Express takes 4 hours and 17 minutes to complete the route from Chur, Switzerland to Tirano, Italy.

Which route is better Bernina Express or the Glacier Express

The Glacier Express is a better train than the Bernina Express. The interior is more luxurious, and there is meal service available on board. As for the scenery, they share the same route for a few hours, and overall the beauty is about the same on both routes, totally stunning.

Glacier Express

If you could only pick one train ride, you should do the Glacier Express, but really try to make time to do them both.

What stations does the Bernina Express stop at

You can get on and off the Bernina Express at the following stations:

  • Bernina Diavolezza
  • Campocologno
  • Tiefencastel

What to bring with you on the Bernina Express

You should plan to bring a few essentials with you on the Bernina Express. If you go in winter and the sun is out the glare can be incredible, so you’ll want sunglasses.

Best time of year to ride the Bernina Express

The best time of year to ride the Bernina Express is February. You’ll have smaller crowds, beautiful snow filled mountains, and cheaper prices at the hotels. Another amazing time to visit is in early summer, when you’ll still have some snow and you’ll also get to see alpine lakes.

What food is on the Bernina Express

There is no meal service on the Bernina Express. The only food available on board is a food cart with snacks and drinks that will come through the train a few times. If you want to eat a meal, you’ll need to bring it with you on the train. You are allowed to bring food and drinks.

Bernina Express food cart

If you are boarding at the Chur station, there are food stands open before the Bernina Express leaves. This food shop was open when we arrived at the station 30 minutes before departure.

Chur Station

Bernina Express Alternatives

Several alternatives exist to riding the Bernina Express, and in many ways they are the better way to ride. If you want to take the Bernina Express one direction and ride regional trains the other way, here is a sample itinerary.

If you have the Swiss Travel Pass you could just hop on any of these routes going north from Campocologno. The morning Bernina Express leaves Chur at 8:32 and arrives in Campocologno at 12:41. Any route going north after that time would work to get you back to Chur.

Bernina Express regional train alternatives

Other things to note about the Bernina Express

The Bernina Express offers WiFi and it is free to all passengers. While the speeds aren’t incredibly fast, it’ll be good enough to look something up, or send a text or email.

Dogs are allowed on the Bernina Express, but any dog measuring over 30cm in height will need a ticket. Height is measured at the top of the shoulder blades. You can get a dog ticket on the Bernina Express Website .

Bicycle transport is not allowed on the Bernina Express.

Intrepid Travel, making the industry inclusive & sustainable

Matt Berna, President and Managing Director of the Americas for Intrepid Travel

Starting his career in travel as a tour leader 30 years ago, Matt Berna fully appreciates what it takes to deliver an exceptional travel experience. In his tenure within the travel industry, he has worked with some of the world’s leading tour operators to develop and grow their travel portfolios, from active and outdoor-based trips to more culturally immersive itineraries and experiences. 

Berna has held several roles with Intrepid Travel since 2008, most recently as General Manager of Global Sales for the destination management arm of Intrepid. As the President and Managing Director of the Americas for Intrepid Travel, he oversees the company's direct and industry sales strategies in North America and continues to grow Intrepid’s B2B white-label sales with partners globally. Additionally, Matt has oversight of business development and operations of Intrepid’s DMCs across the Americas, which includes operations in North, Central and South America.

We sat down with him to understand more about his mission to make travelling more inclusive and sustainable.

What is ‘over tourism’ and why is it a problem? 

Overtourism happens when the number of tourists or the management of the tourism industry in a destination becomes unsustainable. When there are too many visitors, the quality of life for the local community diminishes, the surrounding natural environment is negatively affected, and the quality of the tourists' experience declines. 

Overtourism is a big challenge, and it’s more important than ever to go beyond the surface of a destination and seek out off-the-beaten-path, authentic experiences. The benefit of travelling with a small group tour operator like Intrepid is that local tour leaders truly know their countries and cities. 

They can avoid areas that are over touristed and advise on the best behaviour to blend in easier. Obviously, areas with many tourists cannot be fully avoided, but on Intrepid tours, which typically have a maximum of 10-12 guests, we try to time the visits to famous sites or locations so that most of the tourists and day trippers are avoided as much as possible.

Tell us about the development of ‘low impact’ tours. What type of analysis and research goes into their creation? 

As the world’s largest carbon-neutral travel company, a certified B-Corp, and a pioneer in sustainable travel for over 30 years, we’re always looking for new ways to cut down on emissions and offer low-impact tours. In 2022 we accelerated our strategy around purpose and re-vamped many of our trips to make them even more climate-conscious. 

All of Intrepid’s 1,000+ tours around the world are carbon offset. Which is a great place to start. But the best way to help the planet while you travel is to minimise your footprint in the first place. That means fewer internal flights (or preferably none at all), lots of public transport, good old-fashioned walking (or cycling), and eating plant-based meals (and less meat, generally) wherever we can. 

We embed purpose throughout our business and have hired a staff of experts including a General Manager of Purpose, a Global Environmental Impact Manager, a Global Responsible Supply Chain Manager, and a Global Social Impact Manager to help lead our vision. We have an amazing product team that spends countless hours developing tours with the lowest possible impact. 

How can the travel industry participate in the rebuilding of local communities after natural disasters and socio-economic unrest?  

Intrepid’s purpose is to empower travellers to make a real impact in the communities they visit. We commit to giving back to the communities we travel to by employing locally, buying locally, and investing in community projects.  

By partnering with in-country aid-funded organisations, we can create tourism products that generate a positive economic impact by using our knowledge and market experience. For example, in Bosnia and Herzegovina we partnered with USAID ’s Developing Sustainable Tourism (Turizam) programme and the Global Travel and Tourism Resilience Council to regenerate this Balkan country through sustainable tourism.  

With our local knowledge and Intrepid teams on the ground, our philanthropic arm, The Intrepid Foundation, supports our carefully chosen partners to make a positive impact and create solutions on important issues. Since 2002, The Intrepid Foundation has raised over AU$12m for over 130 partners around the world. Earlier this year, Intrepid launched a

Türkiye and Syria Earthquake Appeal, which raised over AU$150,000 to support immediate relief, aid and rescue efforts. 

Travel equity is important, especially for female travellers. How is Intrepid Travel ensuring better equity for women in travel?  

We aim to use tourism as a driver for inclusivity and to help more people benefit from global travel. Tourism has a unique role to play in support for communities and opportunity creation, whether it be hiring more female porters and trip leaders, identifying gender pay gaps or partnering with suppliers that support and employ local women, Intrepid Travel works to provide equity for women across the business.

A great example of how we empower women and girls through travel is with our range of Women’s Expeditions tours. These are a collection of tours led entirely by female leaders that aim to break down barriers for female travellers and provide local women employment, while also supporting women-owned and operated businesses in our supply chain.

This year, the range will feature six trips which are each carefully designed to support employment opportunities for women, including our first-ever Women’s Expedition in Pakistan.

Tourism enables people to celebrate and share their culture, creates jobs and livelihoods, and offers education and connection between people in an increasingly divided world.

As a purpose-led business, we support First Nations tourism, women-owned businesses, and communities that seek economic opportunity. We also recognise we have a role to play in sustainable practices in our supply chain, to ensure we advocate for human rights and to reduce harm in our community – all while continuing to improve on our B Corp journey.

How has the idea of ‘sustainability’ changed over the years and impacted the way you approach business?   

For the past 34 years, Intrepid Travel tours have been designed to minimise their environmental impact, using public transport and low carbon options wherever possible. We have been carbon neutral since 2010, but we know that is no longer enough. That’s why we are taking steps to decarbonise our business in line with our science-based carbon reduction targets and Climate Commitment Plan. As a certified B Corp, we are open about our impact and make public reports on our progress.    

Last year, we introduced at least one plant-based meal on all of our  Real Food Adventures , we formed a new partnership with fellow B Corp and slow travel provider Byway to help our travellers travel to and from their trip in Europe flight-free. We grew the number of First Nations experiences on our trips to over 100 and launched a range of new international walking trails including the Trans Bhutan Trail (Bhutan), Great  Inca Road (Peru) and the Via Dinarica (Balkans) to meet the growing demand for nature-based tourism. 

We also started calculating trip-based emissions to gain a stronger understanding of the different components contributing to our overall emissions, such as accommodation, modes of transport, food provided during trips, activities and waste. I could go on and on, but you can see we are on a mission to create positive change through the joy of travel!
