Question on Half Fare travelcard

New Author

Can I purchase a Half Fare Travelcard at Zurich Airport with cash, and use it in the same day immediately? Do I need to fill out an order form before purchasing it at the public transport point of sales? What documents do I need to bring with me?


Hi @Bm6 

Thank you for your request.

You can buy the Half Fare Travelcard at Zurich Airport and use it immediately. You can also pay by cash. You'll receive a transitory SwissPass. We need your passport/ID card and a photo of you. There will be a possibility to transmit the photo also within a link when you are at the train station. There's no other documentation needed.

I wish you a nice day.
Kind regards, LeaG
