I plan to buy Swiss Half Fare Card for my travelling in Switzerland, then I plan to move to Italy by taking train from Bern to Milan. I checked SBB website for advanced train ticket.

Could you advise when I do purchasing can use benefit of Half fare card to get discount of train price? I saw there are reduction for Half fare travelcard, but not Swiss half fare card. Can I select it to get discount when I buy the ticket online?

Thank you for your time,

Hi Big, welcome to MySwissAlps!

Basically you just need to buy a ticket from the border (Domodossola) to Milan in advance through any of the websites listed here. Buy your discounted ticket from Bern to the border on the day itself. You don't need to book that in advance.

On the SBB site, for Italy specifically, it should work to select the other half fare card (but this is a different product). The above method works for sure.
