SWiss Pass card

New Author

Hi, I just purchased a swiss pass card . i will be travelling from Zermatt to Zurich Airport. With this    Swiss pass card, do i need to purchase any tickets from SBB or i just hop on to any trains? . secondly, i am travelling with 2 young kids.  Will it be wise to make reservations for the seats and how do i go about it? Appreciate if anyone can advise.



Hello @valerie1717 

Thank you for your query.

The SwissPass card is not a ticket. Subscriptions can be loaded onto the SwissPass card. Individual tickets can be purchased online at, on the SBB Mobile App, at the ticket counter or at the ticket machine. Reservations are not obligatory within Switzerland. There are trains that can be reserved. You can see them on our timetable. It is recommended to make a reservation especially at peak times.

I wish you a nice day.

Kind regards, AferditaH
