Hi Rajendras and welcome to MySwissAlps,

Yes, your daughter is still eligible for the Swiss Family Card. Children under 16 years of age travel for free when the parents travel with a Swiss Travel System rail pass such as the Swiss Travel Pass.

You can purchase the passes at Basel train station, but if you find it more convenient you can order them online as well. Click here to order the Swiss Travel Pass and print the passes at home. It will save you time in Basel as you can skip the ticket office and board your train straight away. You can get the Swiss Family Card free of charge while ordering the Swiss Travel Pass.
