Hi,

I was able to find a sample of the swiss travel pass if you print at home, however my question is does it come in a different format (ie. card form) if you have them mail it to you or if you purchase it when arrive in Switzerland. I am just wondering how that paper pass will hold up over my trip?

Thank you!

T

Hi T,

If you order a physical paper pass the shape and form differs a bit per retailer. Usually it has a plastic or paper cover. I have never had an issue with it during holidays. Just keep it dry and in a wallet or something. And make sure you don't loose it. I recommend print at home passes if you have the choice. You'll have an electronic copy so you can always print it again if necessary. Basically you can't loose it. Plus, it's quicker and sometimes cheaper to get it through e-mail.

You'll find Swiss Travel Pass purchase options here. If you want to order directly from the Swiss Railways you can go to 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 pass (no delivery fees), so you can print it at home.
