Welcome to MySwissAlps!
1 - This trip does not need to be booked in advance. Tickets do not sell out, you can buy them on the spot. If you are planning to travel on the Glacier Express, you will need a seat reservation. Reservations do need to be booked in advance as seats can sell out on that particular train: myswissalps.com/ glacierexpress/tickets.
2 - Tickets to Italy do need to be booked in advance. You can do so through the SBB site and pick the Half-fare travel card when asked, or check if any of these sites offer better prices.
The Swiss Half Fare Card itself can be purchased through the SBB tourist shop at www.swissrailways.com/ en. After filling out your address, they will show the delivery options. Pick "Online Ticket" from the bottom of the list. They will e-mail the card (no delivery fees), so you can print it at home. Whether you buy the card before or after you buy tickets does not matter, as long as you have both when you board the train.
