Hi all - sorry if this is an easy find. But - if I buy the swiss half fare card - does that entitle me to the discounted price on the TGV Lyria from Lausanne to Paris? that is by far the best price but worried if I book it I may have an issue if I did it wrong. THANK YOU!!

Hi krissy,

The Swiss Half-Fare Card only works up to the Swiss border not in France. The border is at Vallorbe on the way to Paris from Lausanne.

If you look up the trip on the Swiss Train Timetable ( metable) and enter "half-fare" as the reduction in Switzerland it should calculate the correct price.

Have you seen aintickets/france?
