What is the best way to carry the swiss travel pass e-tickets? Just printed them off and they carry a bit of a warning about not getting them wet and smudging up the passes- I assume because they maybe couldn't get scanned? Anyway, can i / should i just fold them up and put them in a jacket pocket as I travel? Should i put some kind of clear plastic protector on them?

Other ideas? Thanks in advance for your replies...This forum is awesome

Someone mentioned recently that they hadt he relevant part of theirs laminated. You can also print a few spares to take with you and/or keep a copy of the pdf on a thumb drive so you can print a fresh one (at your hotel) if the original gets damaged. The Flex STP which can't be printed at home arrives in a foldable plastic sleeve complete with coverage map. Someone may know if these plastic sleeves are available at SBB ticket counters.

Hi mou10mn,

You can pick up a protective sleeve at a SBB office. Folding would be fine and keeping it secured somewhere - just avoid folding on the bar code they scan. As Rockoyster mentioned you can always print another copy if need be.

Have a great trip!
