Hi Arno -
I am a bit confused by the information on the Swiss Half-fare travel card in the link that you provided. As you note, it is not tourist pass.
In the past, the equivalent of these cards required a Swiss mailing address. My own Halbtax (Halb Abo) card requires that. Somewhere else, I read that the SBB now might possibly require evidence of a Swiss residency, perhaps by some kind of document from the authorities of the Gemeinde or Commune. None of this is very clear to me, so I am asking basically because I am uncertain (for m own knowledge), and because the answers may help Denise.
Perhaps her daughter's student domicile meets those requirements, if they exist? In the case of denise's daughter, perhaps the school that she is attending (if she is in school) can help with her arrangements?
