Swiss Railways Wins Milestone Award

The Swiss Company RailAway was awarded the Milestone award for its "most outstanding project" according to Swiss Info. Those of you not familiar with RailAway can be recognized by the fun ways of exploring Switzerland.

The Milestone award was created in 2000 to promote innovation and increase competitiveness in the Swiss tourist industry. I'm not really sure how many companies might be involved but I certainly did take notice of the deals RailAway has to offer.

If I'm not mistaken, RailAway is what you see when you go into train stations for travel packages and special offers, which are usually in Green. You can walk into the travel agency area of the station to find out more information. The Swiss Railways offers attractive and "affordable" travel packages with rail tickets and entrance to a wide variety of attractions. I think we used them when we were able to book a trip to Paris for 4 days and 3 nights. Their offers must be working since the railways turnover in the five years of existence.
