Do i need to purchase a swiss half fare card in the US before leaving for switzerland or can I purchase it upon arrival at the zurich airport station? Also, I am planning to purchase the Jungfrau Railways Pass at Interlaken - once I purchase this pass, will I need to obtain tickets before boarding the train on the free routes? Or just board the train with the pass?
Also, any chance any train routes within Switzerland will sell out? or I can buy day of? Do i need to buy tickets to Jungfraujosh/Schilthorn in advance during the summer?
Thanks!

Hello Amy! Purchase options for the Swiss Half Fare Card are listed at the Swiss Half Fare Card page; just fill out your country of residence in the upper right corner. As for buying tickets: you can do so at the spot before boarding the train and there's no need to book them in advance. Where the Jungfrau Railways Pass provides free traveling, you don't need additional tickets; where discounts apply (e.g. up to the Jungfraujoch) you have to buy an additional discounted ticket. Have a great stay in Switzerland!
