Penalties for not showing HALF FARE PASS? / repay discount availed?

New Author

Hello there,

I have booked supersaver tickets with half-fare discounts, hoping to buy half fare card once in Switzerland. Now my itinerary has changed and buying half fare pass is not a smart decision. Now if I want to travel on the booked tickets, is there any way I can pay the discount charges and use the same tickets?

Thanks in advance.

Hello @Pramey 

You have the possibility to exchange the ticket with a deductible of CHF 10.00 or you buy a 1/2 ticket at the normal price (additional).

If you have some futures questions you have the possibility to write an e-mail to or call +41 848 44 66 88. Please tell them your order number.

Kind regards
