Swiss half fare card purchase problem.

I would like to buy swiss half fare card for one adult and two youth. But when I selected 2nd class it could not select any number for the passenger.

From what I know the swiss half fare card is doesn't matter for 1st or 2nd. So is it I can just choose 1st class for 3 adults, is it will be the same??

Hello Jaclyn,

Thanks for your question.

There are no youth fares for a Swiss Half Fare Card.

Switzerland can be discovered by trains, buses, boats and scenic mountain trains. Use the Swiss half fare card to get one month’s of half-price travel.

Children under the age of 16 travel free of charge when accompanied by at least one parent holding Swiss Family Card

Only persons domiciled outside Switzerland and the Principality of Liechtenstein are entitled to purchase this ticket.

The Swiss Family Card is available free of charge at attended Swiss railway stations or when you book online.

In order to book tickets, please visit our website

Hope this helps.

Hi Aamir.

So, if I understood it right, We MUST book first class train tickets with this Swiss Half Fare card. Is that correct?

Do we have a card which can be used for second class booking also?

Hello Akash,

Thanks for the question.

Swiss Half Fare Card has only 1st class available. However, with a 1st class Card, you can travel on 2nd class as well.

Hope this helps!!!
