My wife and I are interested in buying half fare travelcards for the two of us, and then getting a Family Card to cater for our 14 year old daughter.

1. Can we use these travel cards to get around Zurich at a discount?

2. Can the half fare cards be used to obtain a discount for a journey to Brescia, Italy?

Hi Jeff, thanks for joining MySwissAlps!

1. Yes, you certainly can. The Swiss Half Fare Card gets you discounts all over Switzerland, please see the map: swisshalffarecard/ validity.

2. Yes, the Swiss leg of that trip (Zurich to Chiasso) will be discounted.
