About the Junior Travelcard

In summary, this is what the card is:

  • The Junior Travelcard allows your children from 6 to 15 years old to travel along for free.
  • The Junior Travelcard is valid for 30 days.
  • The parents need to travel with any valid ticket or pass (including Eurail and Interrail). Exceptions apply to some regional passes.
  • Children up to 5 years old travel for free and do not need a Junior Travelcard.
  • Children do not need a Junior Travelcard if the parents own a pass of the Swiss Travel System. In that case, the Swiss Family Card is a better choice.
  • There is a similar Children’s Co-Travelcard if you are not the parent of the children you will be traveling with.
