Hi, We will be in Switzerland for two weeks and the Half Fare card ( one month option) seems ideal for train trips we are planning.
We would like to pre purchase it so we can also book train trips online before we depart.
I have three questions ..
1. It seems that to buy the card is CHF 110 but to have it sent to Australia ( DHL is the only offered option) is CHF 90. Clearly this is excessive. Is there any way / option through SBB where I can pre purchase with a reasonable delivery cost, so I can do online train bookings in advance?
2. Are their other agents who sell the Half fare Card online and have reasonable delivery costs to Australia?
3. We are traveling to Switzerland from the Cinque Terra in Italy.
If we pre purchase the Half fare card, can we use it when we book the train trip to Muerren ..through either the Italian Rail system? or Swiss Rail system?
