Family card and Ticket Booking

New Author

I have a Half Fare Card with a Family Card. The Family Card allows children 6-16 to travel free. Do I need to have a ticket for the children 6-16?  If I need a ticket how do I get a free ticket on SBB Mobile? On SBB mobile I can only see full fare and half fare for children and there is no option for a free ticket. The 0-6 child is automatically entered as free because of the date of birth. Thank you



Many thanks. That's a great answer

Hello @dephead2004

Children between 6 and 16 years of age who are accompanied by at least one parent holding a valid STS ticket travel free of charge with the complimentary Swiss Family Card. The family ticket is the ticket for the children. You do not need an additional ticket for the children.

Kind regards

Many thanks. That's a great answer
