I got the Swiss Pass online and got this attached pdf doc in email. Is this the only document that I would need along with my ID/passport?

Do I need to do anything further to activate this or get this stamped before I board trains?

Do I need to show this to get actual tickets for each train? I assume not as this likely serves as the ticket as well, but would like to confirm. Thank you!

Hi Chandra,

That is your Swiss Travel Pass. You only need that and your passport.

Tickets are needed only on routes that aren't fully covered by the Swiss Travel Pass. IE mountain trips where you get a 25% or 50% discount.

You can find those details here: https://www.myswissalp validity
