Unable to get discounted fare on SBB app after purchasing Half Fare Card

New Author


I purchased a Half Fare Card for my upcoming trip to Switzerland and find I am unable to get discounted fares for any trips using the SBB app.  My Half Fare Card shows up in My Tickets on the app, but when I try to purchase a ticket, select the stations, date and time, I can pick which route I want and Select Ticket, but the tickets are full fare; the half fare option does not appear.  If I try all these steps online at I can select the fare discount which allows me to get the half fare.  Please help.


Thank you!  It worked! 🙂

Hello, this has happened to me. Please help. Thank you. 


Hi @charvivian

Thank you for your request.

 You can change the reduction after choosing a timetable in the step “ticket option”. Please click on “edit travelers” (on the right) and select “1/2”. Your settings will be stored for future orders.

 I hope to have answered your question.


Best regards

Thank you!  It worked! 🙂
