buy Swiss Travel Pass online validity

New Author


I am a resident in switzerland. I plan to buy Swiss Travel Pass Flex 8 days for my family who is planning to visit me in september. Since i will meet her in May so i think to buy the ticket and bring back to her so she can use for first time when she coming to switzerland at septembe 2018.

I checked thru SBB official website and it seems that the validity to buy swiss travel pass is less than 2 months. this create the problem that i can't buy the ticket in May 2018 for travel period at september 2018.

Can you please let me know how can i proceed now if i want to buy swiss travel pass to use on september 2018 ?

thank you
