Hi Sydneyjen,

No. BUT there is a Children's Co-travelcard that is 30chf and allows children to travel free with you as long as you have a valid ticket. You can read all about the terms and conditions here.

It must be bought at an SBB rail office in Switzerland and there is a promotion now lasting until Jan.31 2018 that the price is only 15chf (children 5 up to their 16th birthday).

Thanks Lucas for the information - Just to confirm, this will work if i have a rail pass? (not an individual ticket for the journey)

also can i buy this on the internet or only once we arrive at Zurich airport.

thanks

Yes any valid ticket or pass.

You can buy a Swiss Travel Pass online (and a few others) is that what you have?

You have to buy the Children's Co-travelcard at a SBB ticket office - which you can find at Zurich airport.
