Travel by train throughout Switzerland all day – sightseeing in cities, get to know regions or go for a walk. If you take day trips on public transport, our savings tips will help you to travel at lower cost.
Do you fancy a shopping spree? Or would you like to visit an old friend or colleague? You can benefit from very attractively priced supersaver tickets on selected routes. You can buy supersaver tickets online to print out yourself. They are limited in number and only on offer during a special promotion. Also, they are always valid only for the train you have selected.
1-day travelpasses for the Half-Fare travelcard.
If you would like to take a day trip to a faraway destination or make a round trip, a 1-day travelpass for the Half-Fare travelcard (or 1-day travelpass for children) is usually cheaper than a return ticket. With a 1-day travelpass for the Half-Fare travelcard you may also travel spontaneously on another route because you can use it to travel for the whole day throughout Switzerland, in the same way as the GA travelcard: by train, boat, postbus, and by tram and bus too in most Swiss cities and urban areas. And the best part is – with a 1-day travelpass for the Half-Fare travelcard you can also enjoy reduced RailAway combined offers. You only have to purchase the discounted additional service (leisure service): online if available but also at ticket counters or from Rail Service on 0900 300 300 (CHF 1.19/min. from the Swiss fixed-line network).
Junior and Grandchild travelcards.
If you have children aged between 6 and 16 years, we recommend that you buy Junior travelcards. Your children can travel with you or their other parent throughout Switzerland for CHF 30 for one year. And Junior travelcards are also valid for all RailAway offers. This means that you only have to buy the reduced additional service (leisure service) for the children: online if available but also at ticket counters or from Rail Service on 0900 300 300 (CHF 1.19/min. from the Swiss fixed-line network). The same principle also applies to the Grandchild travelcard for grandparents and their grandchildren aged 6 to 16 years.
