Today is Sat. Sept 5. We depart for Switz. on the 14th. It says to allow 8 business days for receipt of passes. Will we get passes within the next 8 days if I order today?

Hi rutheye,

I assume you mean the Swiss Travel Pass, and you intend to order through www.raileurope-world.com? They offered a "print at home" option until very recently, but I just noticed it's now physical shipping only. I guess the option will be back soon. But for now, I would not recommend to order through them as you may not receive the pass in time.

You can order through www.swissrailways.com/ en instead. Choose "Online Ticket" when asked for delivery options. They'll e-mail you the pass within 2 to 3 working days.

You can find all purchase options on our Swiss Travel Pass page.
