I just bought two Swiss Half Fare Cards online, from Rail Europe India. I also requested two Family cards, for our two kids aged 7 and 13.
My questions are:
Are these valid to buy train tickets on SBB? That is, is this card valid if I buy train tickets online on the SBB website or at the stations in Zurich / Murren / Lucerne? Or are they restricted to buying tickets only on the Rail Europe network?
With these family cards from Rail Europe, I don't need to buy tickets for the kids. Is this correct?
We are traveling Zurich to Murren (via Lauterbrunnen), Murren to Lucerne, and Lucerne back to Zurich.
I will appreciate any help on this. The Rail Europe Live Chat rep was not very helpful.
