1. just need to quickly confirm that the print out version of the swiss half fare card does not need any further validation on arrival is that correct?

2. If my first point of embarkation is on a postbus, and I was told ticket to be bought from the driver, I just need to present the paper print out of the Swiss Half fare card to the driver and pay the balance correct?

Hi binkytravels!

1. That's correct, the printed Swiss Half Fare Card is ready for use and doesn't have to be validated. Please see alffarecard/howtouse.

2. Yes, that's correct. Just show your Swiss Half Fare Card to the driver and you can buy a 50% discounted ticket.
