I am confused about the Free Family Card.

We are 2 grandparents, a daughter, her 15 year old son, and our 14 year old grandson.

So, if we buy three 8 day SWISS TRAVEL PASSES for 3 adults can we receive a FREE FAMILY CARD for the 2 boys?

Another question. We are Senior Citizens. Are there discounts for Senior Citizens on Swiss trains, boats or buses, or any of the additional train/funicular/ cable car rides?

Hello Barry,

You can obtain a Swiss Travel Pass through, and select 2 children in the "Child in Family Card" box. This assumes that your daughter is the mother of both boys. Is that correct? The Swiss Family Card requires at least one parent to travel along.

There are no senior discounts. Please see the Swiss Travel Pass page and this page about discounts for further information.
