Half-Fare travelcard validity in Austria

New Member

Hello! I have a situation where I am going to travel between Austria from St. Anton am Arlberg to Switzerland, Eglisau for 5-6 months. I would travel roughly once a week back and forth this distance. Is the Half-Fare travelcard the best option for this kind of weekly traveling between countries, and is it valid also in Austria? Or are there any better solutions? Thank you in advance! -Jukka

Hello @Jukka

The Half-Fare travelcard entitles you to a 50% reduction on journeys within Switzerland. If you have a Half-Fare travelcard and buy your ticket in Switzerland, you will receive a 25% discount on routes to Germany and Austria. More information on the Half-Fare travelcard is available here.

You can calculate and book international connections directly online. Please consider that an online price calculation is possible maximum 3 months ahead under the link:

We don't have any other specific cross-border cards for Austria/Switzerland.
