Hello, I am a Romanian national who wishes to purchase a Swiss Travel Pass (for 8 days) online, and I was wondering if I can use my national ID card to purchase and use a Swiss Travel Pass?

I noticed that it requires a passport number when trying to order the passes online and I would like to know if I can substitute the passport number for my national ID number.

Thank you and I hope you have a great day!

Hi silviudima,

Welcome to MySwissAlps! No problem, a European national ID card will work as well. Please visit en. After filling out your address, they will show the delivery options. Pick "Online Ticket" from the bottom of the list. Next, they will ask for the ID numbers. They will e-mail the pass (no delivery fees) with 1 to 3 business days, so you can print it at home.

Enjoy your stay!
