Question about getting Halb Tax card

I am travelling within the TNW area and was wondering about the half-fare card and whether it is valid in combination with any of the Abos? I know that general tickets and day tickets would be half price with this, but am a bit unsure about the season passes, and as I am only now regularly commuting (and was not before), the usual single or day tickets are now working out too pricey. So what would be the best deal for someone who travels within TNW area, at least four days a week? Would I just be better off with a monthly ticket on its own? I believe yearly is a bit cheaper overall. Someone mentioned a GA, but I think that would be pointless unless I regularly travel all around the country. Sorry, being a bit scatter-brained, I'm just a little unclear. Thanks

Re: Question about getting Halb Tax card

I can't answer all your questions, but I can tell you that a Halbtax card will not get you further discounts on year/monthly passes.

Regarding your best value options, it's best to call in at station booking office and talk to a real person about this.

Re: Question about getting Halb Tax card

Thanks. Obviously I planned to go to an office on Monday, but just wanted to get a bit of an idea. If I go for a pass I'll need to get photos done, so doubt I could just buy online anyway. I guess the half fare card would be only worth getting if I went outside the TNW area at times and wanted to save on additional tickets outside of the monthly pass.
