On some tourism websites I see pries for GA Travelcard. Is this something for locals or can it be the same as a swiss travel pass?

Hi Debra,

It is for locals only with a Swiss address. It is essentially the same product as the Swiss Travel Pass (just for longer periods, like a year).

So if there is a discount for the GA travelpass and one for the swiss half fare card and none listed for the swiss travel pass, (I am seeing this frequently) would there be a discount for the swiss travel pass? Could it be assumed the discount would be the same as the GA travelcard holders? Maybe not?

Yes, you can use the GA discount for the Swiss Travel Pass. It can get a little complicated with International tickets (GA holders get a small discount on trains into/out of Switzerland) but within Switzerland you are fine.
