I will be traveling to Switzerland from May 27-June 10 2022, however this is part of a longer trip, and I will be leaving the US on April 28 2022. I plan to purchase a 15 day Swiss Pass. I believe that I can purchase the pass up to 6 months in advance, but need to make sure my valid from date is May 27 2022. So far so good?
Will I be getting the red SwissPass card in the mail? I've downloaded the SBB app, and in order to add a SwissPass to the app, I need my number off the red card. Do I also need this red card to access local transportation? If this is the case, then I assume I need to allow plenty of time for this card to be mailed. Would 1 month be enough time?
If I don't need the red card, then I assume that there is something sent electronically which replaces the card?
Thanks in advance for any assistance!
