International discount card.

With your GA travelcard and Half Fare travelcard on the SwissPass you travel 15% cheaper to Germany and Austria. You receive the international discount card to enable train staff on German and Austrian trains to check this.

The GA travelcard and Half Fare travelcard on the SwissPass gives you a discount of 15% on the German and Austrian sections of the route if you purchase your ticket in Switzerland.

So that train staff in Germany and Austria can check the ticket, you automatically receive the international discount card free at the SBB ticket counter or in the Ticket Shop. Keep this card safe and show it together with your SwissPass. Without this international discount card your 15% reduction cannot be guaranteed.
