It looks like my wife and I might use the 15 day Swiss flex pass for our upcoming trip to Switzerland and Germany (on the ground for about 17 days in Switzerland, with the days interrupted by about 6 days in Germany). I like the format where you can manually write in the days of use, where you have the 15 use days printed with open slots to write in the calendar days as you use them. Is this the pass format that one would get if purchasing directly at a Swiss train station? Also, is it possible to buy such a pass online? In a perfect world we could purchase our pass online a few days before our trip, print out backups etc. and have the type of pass allowing us to write in our days of use. I'd rather not have to worry about online activation and phone connectivity issues etc.

Sorry if this has been discussed before, but if so couldn't find it.

Hi Rob,

The way the Swiss Travel Pass Flex works has completely changed a few years ago. Basically you will get a day ticket for each travel day, so there is no pass with a list of 15 individual days anymore. Note that you don't have to be online all the time. That's only required to select a travel day, so you can do that on the Wifi of your hotel, for example. Please find details here: www.myswissalps.com/swisstravelpassflex/howtouse.

I'm quite sure it's no longer possible to get an old pass on paper and manually write in the travel days. I'll double-check for you and will post back here if I find any additional information.

Hi again Rob,

I did a little more research and found that you will still get the old paper tickets if you decide to buy at a station. Those require handwritten dates. Even though we normally don't recommend this, because online purchasing is quicker and more safe, it is still available if you want it. No doubt that this will be phased out eventually, but for now it is still available.

Additional information regarding purchasing is available here:

Happy travels!

Great News. Proper old fashioned stuff. One of these days the whole 'digital' world will collapse around our ears!
