Dear Arno/Annika/Slowpoke,


As you know we will be travelling to Switzerland (family of 2 adults and 2 children) from 2nd to 10th May 2016.

I tried to buy the swiss travel pass (family pass) online from http://www.swisstravelsystem.com/en/passes/swiss-travel-pass.html.

I'm facing two problems:

1. it is not allowing me a start date of 2nd May - Why is that ?

Can I buy it online with the start date of 3rd May and then start using it from 2nd May once I reach Zurich on 2nd May.?

2. After booking and paying online, In how many days will I get the email link to download and print the passes at home ? Given that I have just 4 days before I travel.

3. Can I buy the swiss travel pass at Zurich Airport ? If yes, where ? And whether at 0630 AM in the morning when I land there.

Hi Sumeet,

I don't know that site very well. Most of the major sites to purchase from are listed on myswissalps.com/ swisstravelpass/ price. If you buy from any of those we can help you with the details.

I guess you're too late, that's why they don't allow May 2. And you can't buy a pass for May 3 and use it on May 2. I suggest to go to www.raileurope.co.in/p ass/swiss-travel-pass-82 as they still offer print at home passes for May 2. They e-mail the pass quite quickly, same or next business day so I heard (for sure in time or they would not allow you to buy for that date). As discussed here, you'll get a Rs800 discount with the promo code "MSA800INR". You can buy at the train station of Zurich Airport as well; it will be more time consuming though. Their sales desk should open around that time. Having the pass in hand is more convenient as you can board the first train straight away.

I hope this helps, enjoy your stay!
