Discounts with the Companion Travelcard.
With the Companion Travelcard (previous Swiss Disabled Passenger’s ID Card) you can get a discount for travel on cross-border services in some trains/countries from a Swiss railway station to a railway station abroad and vice versa (under tariff TCV 710).
In certain trains/countries, you can also take a companion or a guide dog with you free of charge in the same class. You can find out more information and obtain the ticket you need by calling the SBB Contact Center on 0848 44 66 88 (0.08/min.) or by visiting an SBB counter.
Some transport companies abroad use market prices. No discount is given on these services. Information is available from the SBB Contact Center or at an SBB ticket counter.
In other countries, the Swiss identity card is not recognised for buying tickets. You must therefore purchase your cross-border tickets in Switzerland.
For assistance, please contact the SBB Contact Center Handicap 48 hours in advance.
Discounts for passengers with restricted mobility from abroad.
An entitlement card issued abroad will not entitle you to any discounts when purchasing tickets in Switzerland.
However, all international tickets for people who are blind, have visual impairments or use a wheelchair that have been issued in the country of origin on the basis of the relevant entitlement card will be recognised. For international travel between Germany, Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Denmark, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Switzerland, there is no restriction on the type of disability. If you have a foreign disabled passenger’s ID card, it is worthwhile purchasing your tickets in your country of origin. This enables you to take advantage on international routes of the discounts available in association with your disability ID card.
