I'm from Brazil and I will spend a couple of weeks in Switzerland. I saw there are many questions about the Swiss Travel Pass but it seems there are no questions or answers regarding how to get it and how to use it.
Can I buy the Swiss Travel Pass at the Swiss airport or train station (I will arrive at Zurich)?
If yes, how long it will take to buy it? I mean, will it be easy as get there, ask for the pass, pay and get out (something like a few minutes transaction) or would it be a huge amount of effort that takes a couple of hours?
- What kind of papers do I need to buy it? Is a passport enough?
- Once I have it, how do I use it to buy the actual train tickets? Just ask for the ticket to the person selling the tickets and present the pass during the purchase?
- If I decide to buy it online, do I need to print something and get the actual pass at some place? Or does the printed piece have the validity of the actual pass?
I know there are many questions here, but the are all in the same "package" of how to use the pass.
Here are the links I found about the pass but nothing about how to get/use it: Official website
