Hello kedarbarde,

If you are getting Swiss Travel Passes (the Swiss Pass is a different product not available to tourists) for the adults then you can order a Swiss Family Card for free at the same time. Your kids can then travel with you for free. Best to buy on-line and print at home so you can start to use your pass as soon as you arrive. A number of retailers are listed at www.myswissalps.com/sw isstravelpass/price.

Hi,

I am booking 2 adult Swiss Travel Passes for 8 nights but I am not getting option for Swiss Family Pass on that page. My son is 12 YO and wants his travel free

Please advise

Oh hello Raj,

If you fill in the details here shop.swissrailways.com /swisspass.html?langua ge=en&currency=CHF you need to include 2 adults and 1 child. That will get an option for a Swiss Family Card.
