I wouldn't count on being able to get half fare tickets and the Swiss Half Fare Card in Lindau, but you can best ask the German railways to be 100% sure. Either way, half fare tickets are only valid from St. Margrethen onwards, as that is where the Swiss rail network starts (see the map you can download from the Swiss Half Fare Card page
). So you do need a regular ticket
to St. Margrethen. You can get the Swiss Half Fare Card online here
(see all options here
) and the half fare tickets from the SBB website. In that case you don't need to spend time on it in either Lindau or St. Margrethen.
If you continue to Lucerne the same day, there might be cheaper options for you (e.g. the Swiss Flexi Pass
) as this is quite a long trip. But it depends on your other travel plans.
Enjoy your stay!
