We have printed out our online Swiss Travel passes. As we will be using them over several days, carried in back packs, we are trying to work out the best way to store them en route. Is it ok to fold the A4 in two or three as long as the fold does not go through the digital image? We are assuming that they can't be laminated as the rail officer may not be able to read the digital image. Just wondering what other people do. Thanks for any suggestions.

Hi Woodie!

I think it's perfectly fine to fold your Swiss Travel Pass, as long as the bar code/digital image is still unfolded. Laminating isn't a good idea, but you can carry your pass in a plastic or linen sleeve to protect it. Don't worry if some damage does occur. Since it's an electronic pass you can save a digital copy and make as many back-up prints as you like!

Thank you, Annika, for your reply to my query re safeguarding our Swiss Pass. I wasn't sure about printing multiple copies as the printing instructions from Swiss Rail were very particular. I have since learned that Swiss Rail will also print out a new copy for you if you lose the pass or in case of damage. That is reassuring to know. I am sure the plastic pocket or sleeve will work.
