Swiss Pass and Half Fare Card for a student coming abroad

New Author


I would love to buy the half fare travelcard for my 5 month stay in Switzerland. The problem is that my flight from Finland will arrive in Zürich in the evening when the SBB service desk is already closed for the day. Is it possible to purchase the half fare travel card before arrival? I already registered to My Swiss Pass and downloaded the SBB Mobile. Do you think I could receive the travelcard in a few weeks by postal mail to Finland? Or is it enough to purchase it and immediately store it to my SBB Mobile? Or is there some other place in the airport that I could purchase the Half Fare travel card?


Thank you for your help!
