Can 15-16 year old kids travel by train or bus on their own?

Jump to last reply

My son (16) and his friend (15) will need to travel from Geneva to Amsterdam with several stops on the way without accompanying adults. Are there any train or bus companies for which their age won't be a problem? They both look and act quite mature. My concern is that even if we buy tickets online for them, they won't be allowed to border a train/bus or the guy who will be checking the tickets during the ride later might see that they don't have an adult with them, check their passports, and kick them out of the train.

I was trying to check the websites that sell tickets. Some like sbb.ch are very clear that children under 18 cannot ride without adults. Other web site don't have this information. I wonder if their is some that will openly allow our kids to travel. Thanks for sharing your experience and information.
