Hi Tasneem, and welcome to MySwissAlps,

I believe it's more convenient to order the Swiss Travel Pass online. It will save you time at the airport as you can skip the ticket office and board your train straight away. Also, if you lose the pass you can simply print it again. You can't do that with a pass you buy from a ticket counter. Such a pass can't be recovered.

Click here to order the Swiss Travel Pass and print the passes at home. You can get the Swiss Family Card (for your 9 years old) free of charge while ordering the Swiss Travel Pass.

And be sure to bring at least two printouts of the Pass. On my last trip, I somehow discovered my Pass missing at some point. Fortunately I had another copy.
