Do you want to travel with your dog? With the Day Pass Dogs,the Monthly Dog Pass or the Yearly Dog Pass you can take your four-legged friend with you carefree.
Dogs of any size travelling in passenger carriages or luggage vans must always pay second-class half fare or the stipulated minimum fare (Day Pass Dogs, Dog Pass) if there is one. Dogs must sit under your seat so that passage is not blocked for other passengers.
Exception: you can transport small dogs with a wither height of up to 30cm for free as hand luggage provided they are in a transport box, basket or other animal-friendly container and placed under your seat. However, once the dog is no longer in its container, you will require a separate ticket for the dog.
If you are in possession of a valid ticket, your dog can enjoy unlimited travel by train, boat, Postbus and most Swiss urban public transport services for a Day Pass Dogs for just CHF 25.
Your faithful friend is therefore free to accompany you wherever you go for the entire day – just as if he or she had a General Abonnement.
From 11 December 2022, the offer for travel with four-legged companions will be expanded. The Monthly Dog Pass can now be purchased for CHF 60 and referenced to the owner's SwissPass. The dog will not receive its own SwissPass.
If your dog regularly comes along with you on the train, it’s well worth buying the attractive Dog Pass for CHF 350 a year. The Dog Pass is issued to one fixed companion and is loaded on this person’s personal SwissPass. The dog will not receive its own SwissPass.
Day Pass Dogs and Dog Pass are not valid for a particular class and can be used in both first and second class. However, the person accompanying the dog must hold a valid ticket for the appropriate class. Carriage of animals in coaches offering meals and refreshments (with the exception of coaches served by a Minibar) is prohibited. This does not apply to guide dogs and assistance dogs.
