I shall be landing in Geneva on 8th May. Where all can I purchase Swiss Travel Pass? Is there time to buy it online if it is cheaper than buying after reaching Geneva?

You can buy one on line from one of the retailers listed at www.myswissalps.com/sw isstravelpass/price.

It is much more convenient to buy on-line and print at home before you arrive. You have a PDF backup or and yo can print multiple copies unless you lose/damage your original.

Hi Malraj,

Yes, almost certainly you will get the Swiss Travel Pass within minutes of ordering it online.

Dear Lucas. I went to SBB site and the form asks residential address for which delivery time is 2 to 3 weeks. There is nothing mentioning delivery by email. I do not have time as I am starting my journey tonight. Will it be ok if I buy at Geneva airport or at Geneva railway station.

You need to fill in your address details before it asks you if you want on-line delivery. Don't worry - you can buy the STP at Geneva Airport

Hi Malraj,

Delivery doesn't take 2-3 weeks. What you saw is a poorly described way to explain that physically shipped passes ordered well in advance will be shipped 2-3 weeks prior to the pass start date. This is not relevant to passes send via e-mail.

Delivery is quick but it's a manual process, so if you need it the same day it might be safer to buy at the airport train station during opening hours.
