With Express Luggage, travellers can sit back, relax and savour Switzerland's breath-taking views right from their train window, without having to worry about schlepping suitcases, bags, skis, snowboards, sleds, and strollers with them.

Express Luggage delivery is provided between more than 30 select train stations throughout Switzerland, including Adelboden, Bern, Engelberg, Gstaad, Lausanne, Montreux, St. Moritz, Zermatt, and Zurich.

When traveling with children 6 to 15 years of age, simply request a free Swiss Family Card when booking your Swiss Travel Pass. Children under 6 do not require a rail pass or family card.
