We have received our email with Swiss Passes in pdf format. We have read the terms for printing out the actual Pass on specific size paper using specific format. Question? Can we laminate the 4x6 printed Pass so it will be better protected for travel during 8 days. Will this invalidate passes?

Hi becmcentire,

Laminating would be fine - several members have reported doing it and there was no issue.
The staff just need to be able to scan the bar code so make sure there are no wrinkles or folds covering it.

Alternatively you can always print out several copies and keep them somewhere safe; in case you rip or lose one.
