Hai there,

May I know the terms and condition of this below:

The Swiss Travel Pass is valid in Switzerland only. A few rail and bus routes crossing the border allow free traveling too. Examples are EuroAirport (France) to Basel, Martigny to Chamonix-Mont-Blanc (France), Brig to Domodossola (Italy) and Domodossola to Locarno;

does its means that we have a free transport from France to basel? If yes, how we can redeem it?

Because me and family will have travelling from france to Switzerland, but before we buy the ticket france - basel we want to make sure first. Thank you.

Hi DinaTampz and welcome to MySwissAlps!

EuroAirport to Basel is about 15 minutes on the bus and you can use the Swiss Travel Pass for that route. Part of the airport is in France and part in Switzerland so technically you can use the Swiss Travel Pass from France to Basel but it isn't far. :)

Where in France are you coming from? You can buy tickets from France to Basel online here if needed.
