Discounts for children up to 5 years old

Children travel for free if accompanied by an adult. This applies to a maximum of 8 children per adult.

Discounts for children 6 to 15 years old

  • If the parents travel with a pass of the Swiss Travel System, children travel along for free with the Swiss Family Card. See the various passes for details.
  • In other cases, children are allowed to purchase tickets with a 50% discount. With the Junior travelcard they can travel along for free with a parent. There is a similar Children’s Co-travelcard in case you are not the parent of the children you take along.
  • If you only plan to travel for a day and don't have a pass, you can buy a 1-day travelpass for children. The child needs to be accompanied by an adult, who doesn't need to be a relative.

Discounts for youths & students 16 to 25 years old

Anyone between 16 and 25 (inclusive) gets a discount on the Swiss Travel Pass and Swiss Travel Pass Flex. There are no discounts on regular tickets.

Discounts for seniors

There are no discounts for seniors. The only exception is a travelcard for unlimited free traveling for a whole year.

Discounts for early bookings

Booking tickets early can save you money, but restrictions apply. There is the Supersaver ticket for point to point trips on a fixed date and time. Saver Day Passes offer cheap unlimited traveling. Both options are not refundable but may save money.

Discounts for groups

Groups of 10 or more get a 20% discount on point to point tickets, and each 10th person will travel for free. Note that a rail pass is more economical if you travel a lot.
