Benefits with the GA.
With your GA travelcard in 2nd or 1st class, you can take benefit from:
Treat yourself to extra comfort and travel for one day in 1st class: with the reduced class upgrade for individual journeys, for one day or one month, you will feel even more at ease on your journey through Switzerland.
At SBB Change, you can change Swiss francs into over 90 foreign currencies with no commission charges – from early till late, even at weekends. You will also be able to obtain the popular Travel Cash Card.
Take a break from everyday routine. Your GA travelcard entitles you to discounts on combined offers from RailAway. For offers that can be purchased online, you will receive entry at a reduced price, which you can print out yourself. When you show your GA travelcard at the ticket counter, you will be given a voucher for the discount. Simply present this at the ticket counter or cash desk of the relevant service provider. GA travelcard discounts are only granted when specifically indicated by RailAway.
Free of traffic jams and stress, plus environmentally friendly and economical: P+Rail makes it easy to hop on board at a station near you. With your GA travelcard, you can obtain P+Rail 1-month or 1-year passes for P+Rail facilities at the ticket counter of your SBB station. For parking by the day, P+Rail 1-day passes can be conveniently purchased at the SBB Ticket Shop.
If you have a GA travelcard and buy your ticket in Switzerland, you will receive a 15% discount on routes abroad. If you book your journey at least three days before departure and it includes a weekend, you will receive an additional 15% discount on your journey to the Netherlands, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Denmark with the supersaver return ticket on routes abroad. Please make sure that you bring your international discount card with you and present it together with your GA travelcard on your SwissPass to the train crew on the German/Austrian routes.
If you also have a Rail Plus card (25 francs per year) besides the GA travelcard, other European rail companies give you a reduction of 15% on the international section of the journey. The Rail Plus card is only available in conjunction with the GA travelcard or Half-Fare travelcard. For children up to 16 years the Rail Plus card is available without an additional travelcard, and it is free of charge for young people up to 26 years. The Rail Plus card is valid for the same period as your GA or Half-Fare travelcard, but only up to a maximum of one year.
You don’t need Rail Plus in Germany or Austria because your Half-Fare or GA travelcard already lets you travel for 15% less in these countries.
Stay fit with Rent a Bike. At some 80 SBB stations, Rent a Bike has all types of bicycles available for your two-wheeled excursions. You will receive a discount of 5 francs on daily rentals and 10 francs for bike tours lasting up to 14 days. Our tip: reserve your rental bike in advance.
Whether you need a compact car for a city tour, a minibus for a club outing, a utility vehicle for your upcoming move or a convertible for a trip into the countryside – Europcar has the right vehicle for any occasion. And with the GA travelcard, you will profit from preferential conditions! Simply reserve the vehicle online or at your nearest Europcar station and present your GA travelcard when picking up the vehicle – and off you go! For car hires abroad, please contact the international reservations centre, Tel. 0848 80 80 99.
The Swiss Museum Pass gives you free entry to over 485 museums throughout Switzerland for a whole year, including collections and special exhibitions. You can obtain your personal Swiss Museum Pass from any ticket counter to use yourself straight.
