Hi there!

I am researching on the Swiss Half Fare Card for my upcoming trip in June! I'm a little confused as the price stated on the first two websites listed below is 120 CHF however, on the national Swiss railway website, it is priced at 165 CHF. May I know if there is a difference in the passes stated, thank you in advance! :)

Hi cforcheryl,

Thanks for your post! The SBB website is mainly for Swiss citizens, so they offer half fare cards for one year or longer. What you need is the one month tourist version for CHF 120. Please see myswissalps.com/swissh alffarecard/price for where to buy it. Currently, the best option is to go to www.swissrailways.com/ en and select "Online Ticket" when asked for delivery preferences. They will e-mail the card and you can print it at home.
