Payment and documents for Half Fare Card

New Member

I am looking to purchase the Half Fare Youth Card for 1 year. As I don’t have another SBB card, I was prompted to fill out a form which mentions it has to be send by post. Does that mean there is no way to do the procedure online? If so, are there selling points close to the Zurich airport?

Additionally, I was wondering whether mastercard/VISA debit cards are a valid payment option for cards/tickets (instead of credit cards).

Re: Payment and documents for Half Fare Card


Hello @ritachiou 

You have the following options to purchase your Half Fare travelcard:

- To order by mail, please send the completed order form to the address listed on the order form. Payment possible by credit card or invoice

- At a staffed SBB counter, payment possible by credit card, EC card, PostFinance Card, Reka Checks, cash or invoice.

There is also an SBB counter at Zurich Airport.

I wish you a nice day.

Kind regards, SandrineS
