Did you know that if you have a child that is six years of age and living in Switzerland you need the Junior Travel Card? For just CHF 30 and available for purchase at any train station (hint, the SBB office located in Barfüsserplatz is not very crowded) is a great value. Bring your child’s valid identification card or passport and you will receive two cards (one for you and your partner) that must be carried with you and shown at all times during travel. According to the SBB CFF FFS website, the travel card can be used anywhere “withinthe Half – Fare travel card area.”
Oh, and if you happen to be traveling and forgot your child’s Junior Travel Card at home, you may pick – up a temporary card at any train station for CHF 5.
