Swiss Travel System.


Switzerland by train, bus and boat.
Where else in the world can you discover so many delightful destinations, simply by stepping aboard a bus, boat or train? Switzerland is
where travel technology teams up with nature. Almost no village or valley is too remote, no corner too concealed and no mountain too mighty
to be reached by public transport.
Resident in Switzerland and you are planning to travel by train more
than once?
Opt for the Half-Fare travelcard, which allows you to travel anywhere in
Switzerland for half price. If you use public transport frequently, choose
the GA travelcard, which allows you to travel freely throughout Switzerland by train, boat and bus, as well as most mountain railways and ski lifts.
With the Junior travelcard for CHF 30., children from the age of 6 up
to their 16th birthday can travel on public transport for a whole year, accompanied by a parent with a valid ticket.

In Switzerland for your holidays?


All you need is a simple all-in-one ticket the Swiss Travel Pass.
The Swiss Travel Pass entitles you to unlimited travel by train, bus and
boat including panorama routes (excluding supplements and seat
reservation), and local public transport in 75 towns and cities. In addition, you get a 50 per cent discount on most mountain railway tickets
and free admission to some 490 museums nationwide. The pass is
valid for 3, 4, 8 or 15 consecutive days.

For visitors seeking more travel flexibility, the perfect ticket is the Swiss
Travel Pass Flex. This pass offers free travel on public transport on any
3, 4, 8, or 15 freely selectable days within one month.

For families with kids, the Swiss Travel System is particularly attractive.
The complimentary Swiss Family Card permits children aged under 16
to travel free of charge when accompanied by at least one parent holding a Swiss Travel Pass. Children travelling alone receive a 50 per cent
reduction on any Swiss Travel System ticket.
The Swiss Travel Pass (or Swiss Travel Pass Flex) can be purchased in
Switzerland at every bigger train station. Moreover, the Swiss Travel
Pass and the Swiss Half-Fare travelcard are available as e-tickets and
can be printed out at home. Visit sbb.ch/ticketshop.
Then all you have to do is choose your destination and go to the station
to take advantage of generous discounts on most of the attractions
featured in this brochure.
Save money with the RailAway leisure specials, operated by SBB
(Swiss Federal Railways). Go directly to the station to choose your preferred combined offer and profit from various discounted admissions.
More information to RailAway combined offers and leisure activities are
available at railway station ticket counters or online on sbb.ch/leisure.
Please read the notes on each offer page carefully before starting your
excursion.
Authorised parties.
Persons domiciled outside Switzerland and the Principality of Liechtenstein are entitled to purchase a Swiss Travel System (STS) ticket.
