We bought Swiss Travel Pass for 4 days, however, I would like to know if it is beneficial for us to buy a Junior Travelcard for my 2 kids, ages 7 and 13 for our 5th day in Switzerland? Me and my daughter will be taking the train from Interlaken to Murten then in the evening from Murten to Basel Airport, while my husband and son will be traveling from interlaken to Basel airport on our fifth day. If me and my husband can obtain the super saver ticket for the journeys I mention, would we be able to use the Junior pass for each of my kids? Where to we buy it? Website said to buy it at the train station, is that our only option? Do they run out? Thank you in advance.

Hi Claire,

The Junior travelcard can be purchased at Swiss rail stations; I don't know of any other way. But it would not be worth it for just one day. You'd better consider the 1-day travelpass for children, which costs only CHF 16. Please see myswissalps.com/train/ ticketspasses/practica l/ discounts.

Annika,

Where can I buy the 1-day travelpass for kids? The SBB site only has the 3 day minimum option. Do they run out if I wait to buy it at the station once we get there? Thank you again for all the useful info.

Hi Claire,

You can buy it at the station. They sell single day passes too and they won't sell out.

How about for the adults? Do they have 1-day travelpass for adults and could we also buy it at the station? How much does it cost? Thanks.

There is only a 1-day pass for adults if you have a Swiss Half Fare Card. But you'd have to travel a lot for it to be worth the money. In many cases the discounted tickets you can get with a Swiss Half Fare Card are the better option: myswissalps.com/ swisshalffarecard/ details.
