like some of the others in this forum ... i am confused as well!!! i have a few questions about the swiss half fare card:
- it says valid for one month but can it be used a limited number of days in a month?
- do children (aged less than 12 in my case) travel free on the mountain trains?

Hi jd. We're here to help, no problem. As for your questions:
  • The Swiss Half Fare Card allows purchasing as many discounted tickets as you want, during a full month, on all days;
  • If you order along a free Family Card, your children travel along for free on all trains, buses, boats and mountain transportation as indicated on the Swiss Travel System network map. A link to the map can be found on the Swiss Half Fare Card page. Further details and ordering options can be found there as well.
Please feel free to post any further questions. Enjoy your traveling!
