Up and away

Many young people catch the travelling bug once they’ve finished their apprenticeship or studies. Whether you go alone, with a friend or in a group, a voyage of discovery is a worthwhile and enriching experience.

Whether you’re planning a short trip to a neighbouring country or a long journey to the other side of the world, forward planning is essential to prevent any nasty surprises.

Transport – mode of travel

Youngsters up to the age of 27 can enjoy low-cost and flexible travel throughout Europe by investing in an Interrail pass from the SBB.

Find out the currency of your chosen country. Always carry a little money in cash, e.g. for a taxi.

Cultural exchange

Mingle with the locals! Talk to the locals and eat out in local restaurants. Visit famous places which are characteristic of the host country – this will give you a better understanding of the country and its people. These experiences are priceless and are sure to remain life-long memories for you to cherish.
