Can I purchase the Swiss Travel Pass when I arrive in Zurich?

New Member

Can I buy and activate the STP when I arrive in the Zurich airport?  Or must I buy before arriving and then activate it when I arrive in Zurich?   I prefer not buying it online due to high taxes I have to pay for international purchases. Thank you.


Hello @NO1 

You can purchase the Swiss Travel Pass at any staffed train stations in Switzerland (Zurich airport for example) and use it immediately. 

I wish you an awesome staying in Switzerland. Regards RahelW
