Hi, I will start using my Swiss Flexi card, starting from Leysin at early morning say 0640 hrs. I need to validate my flexi card before boarding the train. My concern is whether the rail officials are available at the small railway stations like Leysin at 0630 hrs to validate the card enabling me to start using the card for the first time? Is it possible to get it validated one day prior to the actual start of journey ?

Hello jogijsr,

I am pretty sure there will always be a member of the train personnel at smaller stations, in or around trains. If the ticket office is still closed, you can always ask them to help you out. They're always friendly and willing to help you.

Wishing you a nice trip,
Annika

Hi jogijsr! Opening hours for the Leysin railway station can be found at the SBB website. If you pass isn't validated yet, you should do so before boarding the first train.

However, from your previous post I understand that you'll arrive at Geneva Airport. You can also choose to have your pass validated at the airport railway station during opening hours. That doesn't mean your first free travel date has to start right away. You can also ask the personell to fill another date at which you want to start using your Swiss Flexi Pass (I thought this would be May 5 when heading from Geneva to Leysin, which would mean you'd have to validate your pass before boarding the first train in Geneva anyway, but your plans may have changed since your previous topic).

Hi Arno.
,
Thanks for a very clear reply. In fact I am still double minded, either to start the first free day from the Geneva airport itself or to buy one way ticket from Geneva Airport for Leysin village and keep my option of using longer distances, starting free journey from 6th May. In the latter event, as suggested, by you I will validate the pass at the airport itself for its first use on 6th May and travel by buying the ticket from Geneva to Leysin.
Once again heartiest thanks.
Please keep helping.
