Hi im from Australia and I'm off to Switzerland and not sure if I should buy my 15 day 2nd class Swiss travel pass before I go or when I arrive in Zurich. Cheers. Jacquie

Hi Jacquie,

Welcome to MySwissAlps! The choice is yours, but we usually recommend to simply print your pass at home. That way you can board the first available train straight away rather than spending 5 - 30 minutes (it varies a lot) at a ticket office. To purchase, you can 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 pass within 1-3 business days (no delivery fees), so you can print it at home. More purchase options are listed here.

Hi. I was going to purchase online but I leave on Monday morning. I'll actually be in Switzerland from the 12 to 30 July. I'm planning on buying the second class 15 day Swiss travel pass as I will be travelling as follows

Ruswil 2 nights, Zurich 3 nights, Bern 3nights, Geneva 4 nights, Luzern 4 nights with a couple of nights unplanned.

im happy for any ideas of what are "must do's" in each place.

cheers. Jacquie

Hi Jacquie,

Unfortunately you are too late for an online purchase. Let's hope it's not too busy at the airport train station when you're there. Things to do can be found on each of our town pages: myswissalps.com/ wheretogo/towns.
