Using Swiss Pass to book the tickets

New Author


We will be visiting Switzerland in August (myself, my wife and our 5 year old son). As per what I read on the forums, swisspass is the best option to travel around. 

Few questions:

1. How do I buy this swisspass? We need for 8 days.

2. How do I use this swisspass to reserve the train tickets? 

3. Can I book all transits in switzerland using SBB App? 

4. Do I need to buy a swisspass for my 5 year old son? He will turn 6 in November. 




Hello @harnit2010 

Thank you for your post. 

The best option for you is the Swiss Travel Pass: it is a digital ticket that you can purchase online valid almost everywhere in Switzerland. Here are teh details: Swiss Travel Pass – the All-in-one-Ticket for Switzerland | SBB

With this option you have many advantages, among other that your kind can travel for free with you. 

You can download the Swiss Travel Guide App | SBB  to be sure not to miss any highlights and the SBB Mobile App to be always informed about timetables. 

If you decide not to buy the Swiss Travel Pass, you need to buy regular tickets fo each transfer (except for your child, since he is 5 year old still): the tickets can be purchased via the SBB App. 

If you have any more question, please call our SBB Contact Center (0041 848 44 66 88, CHF 0.08/min)

I wish you a nice day
