Read about what else is included, and further details about the Swiss Travel Pass Flex.
Free entrance to museums
On free travel days, you can enjoy hundreds of museums for free if you show your Swiss Travel Pass Flex at the entrance.
Note: the Swiss Museum of Transport in Lucerne offers a 50% discount.
Swiss Travel Pass Flex Youth: discount for youths
The Swiss Travel Pass Flex Youth is the discounted pass for anyone up to 25 years (inclusive). The Swiss Travel Pass Flex Youth is exactly like a Swiss Travel Pass Flex. There is no other difference than the price.
Discounts on various events and day trips
Essentially the free travel days of the Swiss Travel Pass Flex work much like the GA travelcard (German: Generalabonnement) for Swiss residents, which allows free traveling throughout Switzerland. That means that in most cases where the GA entitles for a discount, the Swiss Travel Pass Flex will entitle for that same discount. Combined tickets for events and other day trips include both the transportation and the admission, and sometimes other services. You will get a discount because the transportation is already included in the Swiss Travel Pass Flex.
Traveling 1st class with a 2nd class Swiss Travel Pass Flex
If you have a 2nd class pass you can still choose to travel 1st class on occasional trips. You can buy an upgrade ticket at the rail station. It costs half of the difference between the 2nd and 1st class fare for the route you wish to travel.
Who can buy the Swiss Travel Pass Flex?
The Swiss Travel Pass Flex can be purchased by anyone except for residents of Switzerland and Liechtenstein.

The Swiss Travel Pass Flex was called the Swiss Flexi Pass until 2014. The Swiss Flexi Pass offered a few discounts which are no longer included in the Swiss Travel Pass Flex: discounts on hotel bookings, guided city tours and the Furka Steam Railway. The group discount (Saver Pass) has been discontinued. Also you can no longer buy discounted tickets for traveling between free travel days.
