1. Open the email with the pass
This can be a bit tedious especially if the email is not filed / stored in an easily accessible folder.
2. Save the pass to your phone (most common)
When you open the email you may get a prompt to save to your Google Pay wallet or your Apply wallet.
Follow the prompts and you can have a shortcut on your phone's home screen for easy access.
You can print out the QR attachment on a printer, it doesn't have to be a colour printer.
Trim along the dotted lines and laminate using packing tape to make it last.
