I want to buy a 3 day Swiss Travel Pass starting this Saturday (17th June). I'm at Uk.. I attempted to buy this initially from sbb site but it looks there are some issues in the site accepting foreign cards. I'm arriving at Geneva airport on Friday around 9.15pm - so I doubt whether I will be able to buy at the station.
Some of them suggested to look at www.myswissalps.com/sw isstravelpass/price
I checked and found the following two sites offer the print versions. (I don't want to buy the delivery option as it's too late to buy one).
Can someone please confirm the following:
1. Once I buy from any one of these two sites, will I just receive the mail / print version of travel pass? Can this be directly used from day 1 without visiting any ticket counter ?
2. Is there any difference between these two sites? Any additional advantages one over the other?
3. Will the passes purchased from these sites have the same coverage / validity similar to the one bought in sbb site? I know that few scenic trains are excluded, but would like to know whether there is any fine print or special conditions compared to the passes bought in official site or at the station?
4. Any promotions available in any of these sites?
