Swiss half fare 1 month pass

by phingy Online Now Mar 11, 2013 at 9:48 AM

Hi guys,

I was exploring the SBB website for international journeys (Lauterbrunnen - Milan) and noticed that for the half fare discount selected it shows "Half-Fare travelcard 1/2/3-year".

Does this mean that the 1 month pass is not applicable for this route? I am confused.

Appreciate your advice! THANK YOU!!

    I had not heard of the 1-month "Halbtax" card before -- only the Swisscard -- but many passes and cards are available in Switzerland only (e.g., 1-day Swisspass). You can inquire when you arrive in Switzerland, or perhaps a local VTer can provide further information and/or links.

    There is a Half Fare card which is sold to residents, and which is valid for 1, 2 or 3 years. That is what is meant here. However, with the 1 month half fare card sold to tourists you can choose this tariff too.

    @KVB: Do you have a link with details of the 1-month half fare card (as opposed to the Swiss Card)? Can one just purchase it at the Zurich Airport SBB office the day one arrives?
