6-months Half-fare travelcard for foreigners

New Member

Hi! I'm staying in Switzerland for the next 6 months and I'd like to know if there is a 6-months Half-fare travelcard for visitors. I am asking this because I could only see 1-year half-fare travelcard and it's too much for me.

Kind regards.


Hello @Geovane 

Thank you for your question. 

These are our offers for international guests: International guests | SBB

A 6 months period is already considered more of a permanent stay. We do not have a specific offer for tourists staying half a year because we already have a lot of offers for permanent residents: monthly oder yearly travelcards, passes for specfic regions and so on. 

I suggest you purchase the normal half fare travelcard anyway, because its cost is quickly amortised. 

For personalised counselling, meeting your needs and requirements, I kindly ask you to call our SBB Contact center (+41 (0)848 44 66 88, CHF 0.08/min, available 24/7) or to visit any SBB ticket counter. 

Kind regards and happy new year
