Hi,

I would like to know whether 2 children upto 14 years can travel with the grandparents using Swiss Family Card.

Thanks in advance for your advise.

Regards,

Shiv

Hi Shiv,

No, that won't work, it's only for parents traveling with their children. But the Children’s Co-travelcard might be a good alternative for you. Please see:

Hi Arno,

Thanks for your quick reply.

Does the Children's Co-Travelcard have the same validity as of Swiss Travel Pass ? Can non-Switzerland citizen use the Children's Co-Travelcard? I saw on SBB site that it costs 30 CHF per child, does one have to club it with any other travel pass/ticket?

Regards,

Shiv

Hi Shiv,

On the second page I gave you, you'll find several links under "More on other websites". You'll find more details there. This product was introduced only two months ago. It is valid on the network of the Swiss Half Fare Card; you'll find a map here. As far as I know any adult can buy it, and any ticket or pass for the adult can be combined with it. So you can buy a Swiss Travel Pass for yourself, for example.
