Credit card

New Author

Hello - 

- Do all stations accept credit cards?

- Will there be no issue purchasing tickets thru the SBB app using credit card?

- Can I buy half fare card using SBB app?

- Lastly, if I buy tickets using the SBB app, can I just show that to the train operator, no need to print anything, including the half fare card?

Ultimately, the goal is to minimize bringing/using cash during our trip. We’re from outside EU.

Thank you and have a good day!


Hello @cookaiganda 

Thank you for your query.

- Yes, you can pay by credit card at any counter.
- You can also pay for your tickets by credit card on the SBB Mobile App.
- You can buy the Half-Fare travelcard at the ticket counter. You will need your ID and a passport photo.
- If you buy your tickets on the SBB Mobile app, you will receive the ticket both on the app and by e-mail. You do not need to print it out.

I wish you a nice day.

Kind regards, AferditaH
