My family is traveling from the USA to Switzerland in October. We have determined the half fare card is the best deal for us as we fly into Zurich and then intend to stay in Wengen for our entire trip. Should we purchase our half fare card at the airport when we arrive or buy it online in advance? Thank you for your assistance.

Hi Audra,

Thanks for joining us. All purchase options of the Swiss Half Fare Card are listed on myswissalps.com/ swisshalffarecard/ price. Your cheapest option is www.raileurope-world.com/pass/swiss-half-fare-card. Note that shipping takes up to 8 business days through them, so don't wait too long with your order.

Enjoy your stay!

By the way: a Swiss Transfer Ticket Combi would be slightly cheaper, and more convenient. Please see here. It must be purchased in advance. In your case you can do so via www.raileurope-world.com/pass/swiss-transfer-ticket-half-fare or www.raileurope.com/rai l-tickets-passes/swiss-transfer-ticket-with-half-fare-card-combi/index.html.
