Hi Arno or Annika-

A new thread promoted by the posts in the discussion about the best pass for 18 days rail travel.

I hold a Halbtaxabo.

The Regional Pass BO seems to be available at a discount for me:

Quoting from the SBB website on who can buy one -

<<"Half-Fare travelcard / Reduced (Holders of: Swiss Travel Pass, Swiss Travel Pass Flex, Swiss Transfer Ticket Combi, Swiss Half Fare Card, Halbtaxabo, Genaralabo)">>

However, possible valid dates seem to end in late February.

SBB Ticket Shop says

<<"Please select a date [DD MM YYYY] within the valid date range: 11.02.2016 to 21.02.2016.">>

I could be interested in June.

Can you help me understand the availability in early June?

Hi Slowpoke,

You'd better buy your pass through one of the resellers listed at our Regional-Pass Bernese Oberland page, rather than through the SBB shop. The easiest option for you is to use www.swissrailways.com. You can indicate that you'll be having a Swiss Half Fare Card (in terms of the discount you'll get, this equals the Halbtax-abo you're using) and ordering for June is no problem. They have the option of shipping to any Swiss address for CHF 6.

Hi Annika-

Thanks for the fast answer:

<<"The easiest option for you is to use www.swissrailways.com. ">>

That works.
