My wife and I are traveling with our toddler to Switzerland between June 3 - June 6. We have analyzed the different pass options for our itinerary, and find the Saver Day Pass to be the most cost effective option right now at 52CHF/day. Do we need purchase anything additionally for our 3 year old, or does he travel for free?

Hello gg01 and Welcome to MySwissAlps,

Children 0 - 5 travel free. No additional pass or ticket required.

Please note the Saver Day Pass lowest price of CHF52/person/day is not guaranteed. The pass will be available from 30 days out from your travel and will usually increase in price the closer the travel date gets.

The best pass really depends on your itinerary and how flexible you want to be. If you haven't already done so you should read “How to choose the best travel pass” ( ain/ticketspasses/prac tical/chooserailpass), download the handy spreadsheet calculator and do the math.

Thank you, this is very useful information!

With the Saver Day Pass(SDP), we were able to time it just right. The 30 day period to get the SDP for travel dates around June 3rd just opened up, and so we were able to get the lowest price of 52CHF per day.

Hi gg01,

Aren't you going up into the mountains to enjoy the views or some hikes during those 4 days? It's good that you managed to get them for the lowest price, so CHF 208 per person for 4 days. But a Swiss Travel Pass would only have been CHF 60 more through the cheapest retailer, and that would have gotten you discounted mountain trips (some free) and free access to many museums. For many itineraries that's the option that saves most money. If you have done the math as recommended by Rockoyster you might be one of the exceptions.

Enjoy your trip!
