Hello Prakhar,

Thanks for the reply.

You can purchase Swiss Travel Pass for your travel within Switzerland and point to point ticket for your travel from London to Paris and Paris to Barcelona.

To purchase the pass click "Here"

Swiss Pass Details –

Children below 16 years are free if accompanied by the at least one parent having a Swiss Pass. We issue a Swiss family card for children.

With a Swiss Travel Pass you can travel free within Switzerland on the STS (Swiss Travel System) network on trains, buses and boats. Also with a Swiss Pass you would get discounts on mountain excursions within Switzerland. These discounts can only be availed locally by showing your Swiss Pass to the ticketing office in Switzerland.

You will need seat reservation for travel on scenic train which costs extra. On mountain trains and cable cars you will receive upto 50% discount on purchase. Rest all trains, buses and boats within Switzerland you can travel free with the pass, however the travel is counted in the day of the pass.

Swiss Family card if for children upto age 16 which provides them free travel with the adult holding Swiss Travel Pass.

To get the Swiss Family card you can add in the number of children in "Child in Family Card" while adding number of adults.
