Is it possible to get a one day travel pass with a half fare card if you are from the USA? I would like to purchase the 6 pack option, but not sure that I qualify to do so.

Hi Tammy,

Sure, you can buy the 1-day travelpasses. Nationality does not matter. You can buy the Swiss Half Fare Card from any of the websites listed here (it's easiest to print it yourself through en), and the 6 pack from any station in Switzerland from the machines (or the staffed desk if you like).

However, you would have to travel a whole lot to make it worth it. Buying discounted tickets is often much cheaper. Even an 8-day Swiss Travel Pass is cheaper than the option you are considering, and it includes free entrance to museums too.
