    Refund for ticket that was covered under GA

    Hey! I have a GA and I bought a ticket for me for the 110 zone in Zürich by mistake. I really think that it's really stupid that the app allow you to buy a ticket under your name when you are a GA subscriber. I was trying to buy a ticket on the app for my father-in-law for the day (return ticket) since he is visiting us and I forgot to change the name on the ticket. I realize in the moment the payment was executing. Were were in a hurry of course. When I was about to return the ticket —less than 5' after I bought it— the app told me that the refund can't be issued since the ticket was 6.2 francs and the return fee was 10 francs. WTF! As I said, for me there are two issues here: I can buy a ticket that clearly don't need since I have a GA. This is a really big failure on your side. I think that at least a big warning should be issued. Mistakes are made, all the time, and I think that be able to file for a refund without a fee in the following 5' or 10' should be posible. Yes, then perhaps people could take advantage of it, but you can also detect those cases, limiting the number of consecutive refunds on a given time without a human supervision. There is an additional issue here… If you have some travel cards for visitors (for two weeks or a week) things would be much easier. I understand —and applaud— that the priority are the regular customers and residents, but every time our family is coming here for a visit is a nightmare or and incredible expense. Thanks!

    Refund of the Friend Day Pass

    I have accidentally bought a Friend Day Pass for the wrong day and in a minute requested a refund. In SBB app shows that the refund has been requested but almost a week had passed and nothing had been refunded.I also described the problem on the SBB website and they have replied that they'll answer in 4 hours but already 32 hours had passed.80 CHF is not something you would like to throw away so how better to remind them or what to do else?

    Billets non réservés mais payés

    J'ai essayé d'acheter aujourd'hui 5 billets d'Interlaken à Milan Centrale, mais j'ai échoué car j'ai dépassé le "time limit". Cependant, la somme d'argent correspondante a été retirée de mon compte bancaire. Existe-t-il un moyen d'obtenir un remboursement ou de réserver mes tickers avec l'argent retiré ? In English (just in case):I've tried to buy today 5 tickets from Interlaken to Milan Centrale, but failed to because i've exceeded the time limit. However, the corresponding amount of money was withdrawn from my bank account. Is there any way I could either get a refund, or reserve my tickers with the withdrawn money?
