Hi, I want to ask about the Swiss Half Fare Card for international guests. We stay at Switzerland for 6 months with residential permit. Can we buy the Swiss Half Fare Card for international guests? At the information, only persons domiciled outside Switzerland can purchase the card and we have no idea whether we are those persons.


Hello @jakelyods58 

Thank you very much for your post.

If you have a residence permit, and therefore an address in Switzerland, you can buy the half-fare travelcard. Since this travelcard renews automatically every year, make sure to tell the colleagues at the SBB counter that your stay is temporary, so that the travelcard will be cancelled and not renewed at the end of the first subscription year.

I wish you a great day and always a pleasant journey with us.

Kind regards
