Half-fare travel card-validation date before receiving the card

New Member

Hello everyone.

I would like to get some information regarding the Swiss half-fare card.

I ordered one using the request form on Wednesday this week, and on the form, I chose the validation date was Monday next week when I suppose to travel with this card.

I am a little worried that we might not be able to receive the card before the validation date. Any suggestions on what else I can do.  Is it possible to get a temporary one instead of receiving the formal one?

Thank you.
