Here's one for the moderators -- until very recently, I believe it was possible to order a discount travel card (e.g., Half Fare Card, Swiss Card) and have it shipped for free to several countries, including the U.S.

Today, looking on the site, it seems that shipping is now only free to UK and Ireland.

Is that correct?

Thank you!

Hi KimSanJose,

Currently, a shipping fee applies to most countries. For some countries, shipping is free (UK and Ireland). Some countries have a minimum order amount for free shipping (US). There are also countries offering free shipping, but they do charge a handling fee (India). So, in case of the US, cheaper passes such as the Swiss Transfer Ticket and Swiss Card do not qualify for free shipping, unless they're ordered for multiple travelers.

The Swiss Half Fare Card is a special case actually. For a long time, it could not be ordered online by non-European travelers. That has been made possible about a year ago, but it is shipped from Europe, so a shipping fee always applies.

I am not aware of recent changes in shipping fees or shipping regulations with the suppliers we link to. You're always welcome to notify us of changes though!
