16th Birthday and Swiss Family Card

If my sons 16th birthday occurs in the middle of the period covered by the Swiss Pass, will the Swiss family card still cover him? Suppose we start a trip on July 1 with a 15 day pass. He turns 16 on July 8. Do we need to buy another swiss pass for him on July 8? Or will Swiss Family card cover him to the end of the 15 days?

  • Dear Dieter,

    As long as your pass has been activated while your son is still 15, then he will still be able to travel for free on the Swiss Rail Network for your entire stay.
    The Swiss Family Card will cover him for the full 15 days of travel. Please note that he may have to pay for some mountain peak trains after he turns 16 but you should not have any other problems.

    Thank you.
