Additional fees shall be paid in the event of misuse (at least 100 francs per person). Additionally, the right to initiate legal proceedings is reserved.

In addition to high fines (at least 200 francs), presentation of a forged ticket will always be pursued under the law.

    Buying tickets in advance and buy Swiss Half Fare card later

    Hi, I am travelling to Switzerland in September 2023 and have some confirmed trips already, but there are some doubts when buying the SBB tickets.1. Can I buy discounted tickets online (SBB) in advance (June 2023) without buying the Swiss Half Fare card? I’d like to buy Supersaver ticket with Half Fare card as it gives more discount, plus some of my trips on September 2023 are confirmed (eg. Visp to Zermatt, Bern to Geneva).2. Related to no.1 above, should I buy Half Fare card nearer to my travel date so the card will be valid when I’m in Switzerland? And I can just show my tickets bought online in advanced (with discounted price) and the Swiss Half Fare card bought after, to the train operating officer, and I’m safe to go? 😄Thank you!

    Is my ticket valid if I take a different route to originally planned

    Helloi am planning a journey from Geneva airport to Lenk. Preferably I would travel via Montreux on the train departing at xx19However, if my flight is slightly delayed and I miss this train, could I then travel via Bern on the train departing at xx32. 
    i can see that they are priced differently, so if I had already purchased a ticket for the xx19, could I just pay the difference on board the train to the ticket conductor, or would it still be valid without paying more, or would I have to buy a brand new ticket ?Bearing in mind that I might be in a rush if I have missed my intended train.Thank you
