I'm arriving at Geneva airport and taking a train directly to Basel for overnight, but want to return to the downtown Geneva station the next day. Can I use a Transfer Ticket for that?
Hi aeffkand, welcome to MySwissAlps!
Yes, absolutely. Both the airport and the main station qualify as entry/exit points. You can print the Swiss Transfer Ticket at home to save on shipping costs: please visit www.swissrailways.com/ en. After filling out your address, they will show the delivery options. Pick "Online Ticket" from the bottom of the list. They will e-mail the ticket (no delivery fees) within 1-3 business days.
Have a good trip!
Great, thanks. I will be arriving on Sunday morning (Sept 11)--would that be cutting it too close?
Yes, unfortunately you are too late to buy a Swiss Transfer Ticket. You will have to buy a regular ticket in Geneva.
Thanks. At least now I know about this option for when I next come back :-) Appreciate the help and advice!
