I want to buy a swiss travel pass with email option for purchase from India.

I noticed there are 2 sites from swiss railways selling the Travel pass: swissrailways.com and sbb.ch

What is the difference in buying from either one of these?

I wanted send by email option. However, while trying to purchase from sbb.ch, I did not see any special option. Is there any description of steps available for making the purchase?

Hi hisjsam,

All the major sites to buy a Swiss Travel Pass from are listed on the Swiss Travel Pass page: myswissalps.com/ swisstravelpass/price. SBB is the domestic site, primarily for Swiss citizens. Swissrailways.com is the SBB webshop for tourists. To buy a pass and get it e-mailed, you can go to www.swissrailways.com/ en. After filling out your address, they will list the shipping options. Pick the "Online Ticket" option from the bottom of the list. They will e-mail the pass and you can print it at home.

Enjoy your trip!
