Depending on how long you plan to stay in Switzerland, there are different options available when purchasing a pass – 3 days, 4 days, 6 days, 8 days, or 15 days.

Types of Swiss Travel Pass

There are 5 types of Swiss Travel Passes, and they are

  • Swiss Travel Pass: This is a regular pass meant for individuals over the age of 25 years. You pay for a set number of travel days
  • Swiss Travel Pass Flex: This is valid on 3, 4, 6, 8, or 15 selectable travel days within one month
  • Swiss Travel Pass Youth: Regular pass for those under 25 years. It is a 30% off the Swiss Travel Pass

  • Swiss Family Card: To get the Swiss Family Card, you can add a child as a passenger under ‘Add passengers’ when you buy an individual Swiss Travel Pass to get this card (valid for children between 6 to 16 years)
  • Children under 6 years of age travel free of charge

The Pass types differentiate based on the age (25 under or above), and the one-month flexibility option. But transportation and sightseeing features are the same.

Highlights of the Swiss Travel Pass

Regardless of the type of Swiss Travel Pass you buy, it features the following 

  • Transportation savings card: You ride public transportation for free on the Swiss travel system, for a set duration of time 
  • It includes trains, trams, boats, and some sightseeing excursions
  • Swiss Travel Pass covers mountain excursions such as Rigi, Stanserhorn, and Stoos. For others, you can get up to 50% discount
  • Unlimited travel on premium panoramic trains such as the Glacier Express or the Bernina Express (seat reservation fees extra)
  • Swiss Pass holders also have access to over 500 museums for free

1st vs 2nd Class Swiss Travel Pass tickets

When buying the Swiss Travel Pass, you further have 2 more options that can determine the cost/price of the pass.

And that is – whether you want to ride the 1st class or 2nd class.

We have been on both, and here is what we have seen and experienced, 

1st class tickets

Seats in 1st class are nicer, wider, and cleaner in our experience. 1st class seats were designed for business riders and hence the premium price with better amenities (charging ports, coat hangers, etc). 

We found that 1st class compartments were always empty and we were able to pick a seat by the windows and take in the views of the beautiful Swiss landscapes. 1st class windows are also larger as compared to second class. 

First Class Compartment: Swiss Travel Pass Review

1st class tickets are expensive compared to 2nd class tickets, but it is soooo worth it – to sit comfortably, have your own space to work, daydream or even take photos from the comfort of your seat. 

Washrooms were also clean, and luggage racks were almost empty – which is handy when you are traveling from one city to another with bags. 

2nd class tickets

2nd class fare is cheaper and very very popular. 

These are the basic – must pay to ride the train/transport – tickets. You get the same benefits of unlimited travel on all public transportation. 

Second class Swiss trains with play area
Second-class Swiss trains with a play area behind

Being a popular option, you will find seats mostly occupied by passengers including children (we rarely saw any kids in first-class SBB trains on popular routes, mostly work and military personnel or mature travelers). 

Recognizing between 1st and 2nd class trains 

When you are on the train platform, you will see the number ‘1’ or ‘2’ written on the train compartment. 1st class cars also have a yellow exterior. 

There are also digital signs and route information available when you board the train.

You can see these numbers inside the train car as well – at the door, and/or at each individual seat.

In most long-distance trains, where there is a dining car, 1st, and 2nd class compartments are separated by the restaurant. 


Quite a few times, we saw 2nd class ticket holders sit in the 1st class compartment (unknowingly), and when the SBB ticket agent came to scan the passes – they made the passengers leave for the 2nd class – even if seats in the 1st class compartment were empty. 

Swiss Trains

The agents/operators were very clear on this – and they make no concessions – you have to pack up and leave, or pay the difference while on board. 

Keep in mind, when you buy a 1st class Swiss Travel Pass, you will also ride the Glacier Express/Bernina Express or any other train where this pass is valid, on the 1st class as well. 

The same goes for 2nd class Swiss Travel Pass holders > riding the 2nd Class Glacier Express/Bernina Express. 

You can ‘upgrade the ticket’ wherever that option is available when you travel. 

  • 1st class option is available on nearly all trains
  • Buses, trams, cable cars, and mountain trains or cogwheel rides only have one standard class available 
  • Boats have both 1st and 2nd class options onboard

Pros of Swiss Travel Pass | Swiss Travel Pass Benefits

Quickly, with the Swiss Travel Pass, we boarded the train without having to pay each time. 

We printed a copy of the ticket and when requested by the SBB operator we showed our pass and they scanned it for us!

We had a 1st class ticket and enjoyed the comfortable seats and compartment. 

Saving money on transportation

If you’re visiting multiple cities in Switzerland then buying a Swiss Travel Pass will save you money compared to buying train tickets separately. 

Plus, it makes traveling easier since there’s no need to buy tickets at every station—just show your pass and board your train right away! 

Basel SBB

We saved money when traveling from Zurich airport to the Old town (where we stayed) and later traveled to other cities. Tickets from Zurich to Basel, to Zermatt and Bern, and Luzern were included and made connecting to different places easy.

Also, savings on accommodation 

With the Pass, we saved money on hotels as well, as we stayed in one place like Zurich and booked multi-night stays. 

Taking day trips to nearby cities made it easy for us to enjoy the train rides, without hauling all the bags. 

Day trips to nearby Swiss towns

Now, Zurich to Basel, Luzern, Bern, and Chur – are all located just one hour’s train ride away, which is fantastic for sightseeing. 

Switzerland as a country is not very huge, and you can surely check off all the primary attractions in any city or town in one day – this is also perfect for those on a budget. 

Savings on special panoramic train rides

Swiss Travel Pass also includes unlimited rides on panoramic trains such as the Glacier Express, Bernina, and the Golden Pass line. 

Inside Glacier Express

Panoramic trains are a great way to explore Swiss landscapes, the Alps, and towns from the comfort of your seat. 

With the Swiss Travel Pass, we only paid for seat reservations on the Glacier Express ride, which would have otherwise cost over 267 francs + seat reservations (mandatory for all travelers). 

Here is our detailed guide to Glacier Express review, and how to use the Swiss Travel Pass to save money.

Note: All panoramic train rides require you to pay a mandatory seat reservation fee. 

We are sharing this screenshot from the Glacier Express website, where you can deduct the ticket fees, and just pay for the seat reservation fee (mandatory) and any extras (optional). 

Sightseeing made easy

Swiss trains/SBB are an efficient way to connect to various cities and small towns in Switzerland (without having to rent a car). 

We explored 4 cities, and 2 mountain towns and in Jungfrau, we visited so many small villages – wherever the pass was allowed like Wengen! 

All this was covered using an 8-day Swiss Travel Pass. So definitely worth it when you wish to go sightseeing and include multiple places in your Switzerland itinerary.

See more in less time

You can explore a lot of Switzerland with their trains – regular or panoramic and the Swiss Travel Pass makes it easy. 

The discount on attractions and free access to 500 museums is also a great bonus if you plan on doing lots of sightseeing while in Switzerland. 

Plan and pay ahead of time

Switzerland is an expensive country to visit. But you can keep your travel expenses low by planning and paying for things before you travel.

Just like making a hotel booking and paying in advance, you can save money on all of the transportation with the Swiss Travel Pass, rather than paying on the go. 

If you buy the Pass on Klook or GetYourGuide online, you are also paying in your local currency, rather than paying for tickets in Swiss Francs. 

Cons of Swiss Travel Pass

While the pass can be a great way to save money during your trip, there are also some drawbacks to consider before you purchase,

One of the primary drawbacks of buying a Swiss Travel Pass is its cost. The passes can be expensive, especially if you’re visiting Switzerland on a very tight budget or are a budget traveler. 

Swiss towns

It could also be costly for those who are visiting for a couple of days (less than 3-4 days), and not looking to go sightseeing. 

So before purchasing one, you can calculate how much money you would save using it versus buying individual tickets or passes for each attraction that you plan to visit. You may find that it doesn’t make financial sense for you to get the pass. 

Swiss Rail Passes

Another drawback of having a Swiss Travel Pass is that it only covers regular SBB transportation services – so even if you do have one, there may still be additional costs associated with your trip. 

This can be in the form of seat reservation fees or mountain excursions that are not included. 

However, keep in mind the excluded excursions – you can still get 25 to 50% off with the Swiss Travel Pass.

Be sure to do your research ahead of time so that there aren’t any surprises when it comes time for payment for special mountain passes and excursions.

Swiss Half Fare Card

Swiss Half Fare Card is another transport savings card that you may consider depending on your itinerary. This card is valid for one month, and your discount is 50% off on all public transportation. 

You can check out the Swiss Half Fare Card here

Keep in mind, being 50% off you will have to pay for each ride (50%) when you catch a bus, train, boat, or tram. 

You will have to carry an ID such as a passport along with the Half Fare Card to redeem the discount.

Pro tip: If you have a set schedule like X number of days in Switzerland and you are exploring multiple places, the Swiss Travel Pass is a better option for you. 

If you are visiting for a month or so and have a loose itinerary and are unsure where and when you will be venturing to different cities and towns, then the Half Fare Card makes sense. 

Half Fare Travelcard

SBB also offers an add-on to a Swiss Travel Pass called the Half Fare TravelCard. What it does is that it provides you with the benefits of the Swiss Travel Pass for up to 1 year, and it can be renewed annually. 

You can enjoy half-price travel throughout Switzerland for one year, starting from CHF 185. 

Each ride on trains, trams, boats, etc is 50% off and valid for 1 year. 

  • Half Fare Travelcard for Youth is also available, and this is for travelers aged between 16 and 25 years old (which is around CHF 120 a year)
  • It also has other benefits such as discounts on car rentals, and other partner services such as Mobility Carsharing, PubliBike, SwitzerlandMobility, and a range of ski resorts

When buying a Half Fare Travelcard, your SwissPass card is valid for several years and your Half Fare Travelcard remains activated on the same card.

Saver Day Pass

The Saver Day Pass is transportation savings pass valid for one day only. This is of course, cheaper as compared to the Swiss Travel Pass or the Half Fare Travelcard, but it is good for one day only. 

You can save more money by booking this pass earlier.

Swiss trains and passes

It is valid on all routes in the GA area – in trains, boats, buses, trams, or post-buses. 

You can use this Pass as an add-on to a Swiss Travel Pass. Let’s say you are visiting Switzerland for 7 days – you can pay for a 4-day Swiss Travel Pass, stay in one location/city for sightseeing for a couple of days, and then add one Saver Day Pass to connect to another city.

How much does the Saver Day Pass Cost?

The Pass costs CHF 29 with a Half Fare Travelcard and it starts from CHF 52 without a Half Fare Travelcard. It is available for both the 1st and 2nd classes.

You can buy the Saver Day Pass on the SBB smartphone app or at SBB.ch. (website). 

Bernese Oberland Regional Pass

The regional pass of Bernese Oberland is valid only in that region. It is valid from Bern, Brig, Lucerne, or any place in the Bernese Oberland. 

This pass works great when you want to explore mountains, ride cable cars, and more. 

Bernese Oberland Train

Bernese Oberland pass includes free public transport for 3,4,6,8 and 10 consecutive travel days. It also covers

  • Free sailing on the lakes of Thun and Brienz
  • Free travel on over 25 mountain cable cars

So, this is a regional pass, and it goes beyond the routes covered in the Swiss Travel Pass. 

As an example, the Swiss Travel Pass covers up to Mürren/Wengen. Anything beyond that will be 25 to 50% discounted. 

But it is covered with the regional pass. Here is the validity of the Bernese Oberland regional pass – map

Should I Get A Swiss Travel Pass?

If you plan to visit multiple cities in Switzerland and take advantage of public transportation while you’re there, then a Swiss Travel Pass is well worth it. 

For those who don’t have much time but still want to see as much of the country as possible, the 3-day or 4-day passes are great options. 

If you plan to stay longer than that or if you know that you’ll be hopping from city to city frequently during your trip, then an 8-day or 15-day pass might make sense for you.   

Additionally, if you plan to visit any museums during your trip then a pass may be worth it just for that alone; many museums offer discounts or access for free, with a valid pass so this can save quite a bit of money!

How Much Does The Swiss Travel Pass Cost?

The cost of the Swiss Travel Pass depends on two main factors: 

the number of travel days (3, 4, 6, 8, or 15) and whether you wish to ride in the first or second-class ticket/compartment

Prices range from CHF 232 for an individual 3-day pass up to CHF 429 for a 15-day (second class) ticket. 

Generally speaking, if you’re planning on taking multiple trips over several days in Switzerland then the Swiss Travel Pass is worth considering. 

Does the Swiss Travel Pass include Bernina Express?

Yes, the Swiss Travel Pass includes the panoramic Bernina Express ride. However, seat reservation is extra. It can cost about CHF 10, 24, or 26 depending on the time of travel.

Is the Glacier Express included in the Swiss Travel Pass?

Swiss Travel Pass Titlis

To get to Mount Titlis, you have to get to Lucerne by train which is included in the Swiss Travel Pass. And the mountain cable car ride is 50% discounted with the pass. 

I am so confused. Does the Swiss Travel Pass include Matterhorn, Jungfrau, Mount Titlis, and other mountain excursions?

So they are all different 

– Matterhorn: To see the Matterhorn you have to get to Zermatt which is included in the Swiss Travel pass. From Zermatt to get to Gornergrat and Matterhorn Glacier Paradise, you can avail of a 50% discount on the tickets. 

Matterhorn Glacier express tickets are 50% off with the Swiss Travel Pass.

– Jungfraujoch: Top of Europe tickets are about 30% with the Swiss Travel Pass

Tickets – Single tickets or Swiss Pass:

Tickets are checked by the SBB official on board. So ensure you have the mobile pass or printed ticket handy. At times, a passport may be requested for Swiss Pass holders. 

Seats on board:

Whether you board the 1st or 2nd class trains, there are no seat reservations allotted. You can get on to the train based on your paid ticket. 

Views outside from Swiss trains

Ensure you use one seat for yourself, there are overhead bins for luggage or racks available in various compartments. 

The second class is usually busy, and depending on the time of travel, you may hear the operator asking you to follow passenger seat etiquette. 

Seat reservations on special/panoramic trains:

Remember that some trains require seat reservations which you have to pay for, and it is mandatory for all passengers. 

Food on board: 

SBB trains also have a dining car on most routes. You can buy coffee or snacks. Their restaurant is also very nice.

    1. Hi Julie,

      The museums included in the Swiss Travel Pass are the same as on the Swiss Museum Pass (which is a different product). The list is included here


      Almost all of the popular museums are included in the Swiss Pass.

      You can also look up the entry fee requirements on individual museums (of your choice), and it will list if the Swiss Pass or any other passes are included.

      Boats, trams (and trains) that are part of the SBB or Swiss Federal Railways network are included (so the ones connecting you between cities and towns in Switzerland). The special/panoramic train rides such as Glacier Express are included, but seat reservation is extra charge. This information is included on the Swiss Travel Pass website as well.
