Here's what you get with the Swiss Half Fare Card
What is the Swiss Half Fare Card and how does it work?
If you're planning a longer trip to Switzerland, the Swiss Half Fare Card is a must.
Well, not a must. Every trip is different. But it pays off quickly to have one if you want to discover Switzerland by public transport. One trip from Interlaken to Jungfraujoch and you've made its value back.
The Swiss Half Fare Card lets you get around the country for less money, giving you half-price tickets on trains, buses, trams and boats all over the place. And by "all over the place", I mean all the places in this map.
The card is good for a month and costs 120 CHF. It's available for every visitor that doesn't have their permanent residency in Switzerland. And is over 16 years old. Children under 16 travel for half the price anyway.
To get a Swiss Half Fare Card, you can buy it online or at a Swiss railway station before you start traveling. It's valid for a month from when you buy it, giving you plenty of time to explore. Just remember, it doesn't cover extra stuff like seat reservations or special attractions, so you'll need to pay for those on your own.
