Hello, I'm a bit unsure about validating a Swiss travel Flexi pass. We will purchase this on our arrival into Zurich airport, do we validate it there and does that mean it is validated for all the days travel ( we will purchase a 15 day pass) or do we have to validate each day we board a train? Also we arrive into Zurich airport Sunday 18th September at 8am and we would like to send our luggage on to our base at Interlaken. Will this service be available On a Sunday? If so what would the cutoff time be to book in luggage for arrival into Interlaken that evening (up to 5pm) or (8am next morning)? Do you have a link I could look at? Thank you for your help

Hi Evanstars,

Validation details are here: swisstravelpassflex/ howtouse. It's easiest to buy your pass online. In that case you don't need to validate it at all, so you save time and can go straight to your first train or the luggage office. All purchase options are listed here: swisstravelpassflex/ price. If you prefer to buy it at the airport you need to go to the ticket offices with all travelers and present their passports to them. In any case you pick the travel days when you need them. When you buy, you only need to pick the first date of the one month period you can use the pass.

Luggage transport is available at any time. You'll find more information, plus links to further details here: practical/luggage. With the Express Flight Luggage service you can hand in luggage until 11:30 AM to collect it the same day from 5:30 PM. There's a PDF document with details.
