    Thank you for your question, Galina.

    Unlike rail passes issued as physical documents, the first date of validity for the electronic version of the 'Swiss Travel Pass' (the 'Swiss Travel E-Pass') would have to be within 2 months from the date it is purchased. The remaining days of validity on a 'Swiss Travel E-Pass' can then extend beyond the 2 months.

    Rail passes issued as physical documents (including the non-electronic version of the 'Swiss Travel Pass') would have to be validated for use within 6 months from the purchase date. Once validated, the remaining validity period of the (non-electronic) 'Swiss Travel Pass' can extend beyond the 6 months.

    You would purchase the 'Swiss Travel Pass' (or the 'Swiss Travel E-Pass') here: http://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/swiss-pass/index.html.
