Rail Plus.

With Rail Plus you can travel for 25% less in many European countries. Important: You don’t need Rail Plus in Germany or Austria because your Half-Fare or GA travelcard already lets you travel for 25% less in these countries.

Rail Plus is a supplementary card for the Half-Fare and GA travelcards that gives you a 25% discount on standard fares for cross-border journeys in 1st and 2nd class. In other words, you pay 25% less in countries where Rail Plus is valid, as long as your journey starts in Switzerland. The Rail Plus card is available for adults and senior citizens from 60 years for CHF 25 per year. The Rail Plus card for young people (up to 26 years) and children (up to 16 years) is free. The Rail Plus card is not available in the SBB Ticket Shop. If you wish to purchase this card, please visit your nearest staffed ticket counter with your Half-Fare or GA travelcard.
