Holiday checklist: travel prep made easy.

You’ve had your holiday booked for ages and the anticipation is gradually building. To help you get your summer holiday off to a stress-free start, we’ve put together a few tips for you.


Exchanging holiday money.

Although you can do a lot via credit cards these days, there are still some situations where cash is the only option.

And nothing is more tedious than having to traipse around your holiday destination looking for a dubious exchange bureau. So why not simply exchange your money at one of around 180 SBB Change points of sale? Or order the currency you need online and have it conveniently sent to your home. → Seven incredible facts about exchanging money at SBB Change.


Cash not secure enough for you?

We offer an alternative: load your desired amount onto a Travel Cash Card at the station or via the “My Card” app. You can withdraw the credit at over two million cash machines worldwide as well as paying online and in over 40 million shops. The best part? If your card gets lost or stolen, you will be sent a free replacement loaded with the remaining value in next to no time, wherever you are in the world. Deal?


Better safe than sorry.

Sort out your travel insurance right away. If you haven’t got any cover yet, you can book individual solutions with our partner Allianz Global Assistance in just a few steps.


Let us take care of your luggage.

Need a break from hauling luggage around? No problem: we’ll pick up your luggage from your house and deliver it to your hotel or to another address in Switzerland or Germany. If you’re travelling by plane, we’ll transport your luggage to Zurich Airport or, for flights with Swiss and Edelweiss, to your destination airport anywhere in the world.


To the airport…

So, you’ve finished your final preparations, packed your bags and made sure the oven is switched off. Off you go! One last thing though – to make sure your carefully planned journey doesn’t get hectic at the last minute, why not purchase your ticket to the airport online or on SBB Mobile the night before? Have a good trip!
