2. OPEN SWITZERLAND TRAVEL CENTRE

Choose your option for which Swiss Pass to buy if relevant.

Many people ask "Should I buy a Swiss Pass?". There is no easy answer to this because of the variables, you just have to do the maths. It all depends on what you intend to do once in Switzerland.

A Swiss Pass is best if you intend to do a lot of travelling around Switzerland, go to the museums and are travelling with children ( they travel free up to 15 if accompanied by an adult with a Swiss Pass).

There are other options such as the Swiss Transfer ticket ( perfect if you intend to just stay in, for instance, St.Moritz to ski) and a Half-Price Pass.

You can visit the Swiss Railway site to check prices between Swiss destinations. You can also buy online with them.
