Hi There,

I'm Rupesh and I will be travelling to Switzerland on 21-25 October. My flight lands in Zurich at 11.30 on 21st and I was planning on buying the 2 Swiss travel pass for 22,23 and 24 Oct for me and my friend. So my question is can I buy the Pass at Zurich HB on 21st for the next three days or do I have to buy the pass on the day I intend to start using it.

Also is there a discount at Chillon Castle with Swiss Pass?

Thank you in advance.

Hi Rupesh, welcome to MySwissAlps!

The entrance to Chillon Caste is free with a Swiss Travel Pass. You can buy the pass at the airport or Zurich HB, but it's much more convenient to simply buy online and print the pass at home. You can select the start date. This will prevent you from waiting for a ticket office, and you'll pay a bit less as well. As you live in the UK, please visit www.swisstravelsystem. After filling out your address, they will show the delivery options. Pick "Online Ticket" from the bottom of the list. They will e-mail the pass within 3 business days (no delivery fees).
