Swiss Pass postal code


How does a UK resident enter their Swiss Pass postcode (in my case 6 digits separated by a space in the middle) on ticket websites that only have space for the Swiss 4?

For example; 

would I just have to find an alternative site or just visit the ticket office in person?

Hi again @potato-swiss 

This also works for the UK postcode.

Examples: W8 5P2 / W1H 2BQ / RH17 7EY (the letters always in upper case).

Best regards

Hi NicolasK

Thanks for your reply, I understand the correct formatting for entering my postcode (XXX XXX) however on the above example on, only numbers are allowed to be entered on the ticket form, and only 4. So I’m guessing I’ll have to purchase via the app or another website.
