Hi there,
I am traveling to Switzerland in mid-September this year with a friend but I'm not sure about the pass I'm going to buy.

I am Thai citizen and has lived on-off in Spain for 1 year (I have resident visa of Spain). Should I buy Swiss pass or Interrail one country pass? Is it possible for my friend and I to buy Swiss pass as it has a promo 1 for 2 now (because both of us have Thai passport but I carry resident visa)?

Thank before hand for the advice.

Hi tpannika,

The Swiss Pass includes more traveling options (especially mountain transport) than an Interrail pass. You can use the 2-for-1 promotion together. Pass details and points of sale can be found on our Swiss Pass page. Choose either Spain or Thailand from the dropdown list on that page, depending on where you want the pass to be delivered.

Thank you so much for the reply.

Just double check again, I tried to buy Swiss pass online on www.raileurope.com. When I identify "country of residence" as Spain is where I have been living lately, there was a pop up telling me that this pass cannot be booked buy EU resident.
Will it be any problem when I use the pass in Switzerland as I will be using my resident visa to pass the countries' borderlines?

Hi tpannika,

Raileurope.com is only selling to US residents and a number of countries near the US. You can best go to our Swiss Pass page and select the country where you want your pass to be delivered (Spain or Thailand). That will show you a list of resellers that you can use.

I guess in your case your permanent country of residence is Thailand, so that's what you should fill out when asked for. You have a Thai passport so that will match up with the country printed/written on your pass. Your resident visa is indeed still required to pass the borders, whether it be on board a train or otherwise.
