I applied recently for my passport to be renewed. I have not received my new passport number to date. Can I use my old passport number to purchase a STP as long as I bring my old passport with the new? The new passport number will not be the same as the old number. I would like to purchase STP before special offer expires. Thank you for any info.!

Hello Debbie,

If it was me I wouldn't buy the pass before I had a valid passport in my hands. If you buy the pass on-line you will get it within hours if not minutes.

I would not recommend buying Swiss Travel Pass with a passport number that won't be valid while traveling. Even if you had the old one with you it isn't a valid passport anymore.

Hi Debbie,

Welcome to MySwissAlps! You still have a bit of time, unless the promotions are so popular that coupon codes run out before the last day. The below promotions should be available until March 26 and April 4:

If you buy later, then you can check at isstravelpass/promotio ns whether or not there is another promotion.
