Best value travel card for non-resident youth/student?

New Member


I live in Switzerland and have a half-price rail pass. My son, who is 20 years old, a student, and who lives in England, will visit me 2 or 3 times this year. Each time, he will stay in Switzerland for 2-3 weeks. We will travel by train to different places, but not use the train every day.

I would like to know:

1. Is there a suitable pass for him to buy?

2. If so, which is the best? 

3. Can the pass be bought in advance by me, ready for when he arrives?

Thank you very much for your help.
