I wanna ask how to use my swiss travel pass 8-days to purchase a free train travel from zermatt to basel on 19/12/2017 ??

I have try to practice the booking by changing the date on 20/10/2017 at website (as the train ticket on 19/12/2017 not yet in advance sale list), and i realized that i unable to search for swiss travel pass in the discount box (only found half-fare travel card/GA travel/ junior card)

If i'm not mistaken, the swiss travel pass did cover the entire route (free transportation) from zermatt to basel. I did some reserch on some forum about how to use the pass. It said Swiss travel pass holder just board and show the pass (printed version) to the train controller for validated purpose only (no need the purchase any ticket)

Please kindly explain if any wrong to me.

Many Thanks

Mr. Thong

Hello Mr Thong and Welcome to MySwissAlps Forum,

The good news is you don't need to buy a ticket if you have a Swiss Travel Pass. You just hop on the train and go. Keep your STP and passport handy to show the conductor if requested.
